Self blunting locs
My Black hair is thick and is hellishly curly for a White british guy. I'm glad because I'm finding it's matting visually more daily. But I often used to get a light ribbing about my practically African hair. So I wasn't surprised about the folding over at the ends of my dreads. And I kept unfolding them to try and keep them from blunting to much.It's all the maintenance I do apart from separating then weekly. But I've noticed some have folded over and within a week are pretty damn stuck. My hair is dreading much faster than I expected at 2 months. I'd really like to just let it do what it wants. So my question is the washing and drying problem one. Is it worth my keeping the tips straight or is it a trivial thing. It's gonna be like another 6 months of unfolding the tips vs many years of washing and drying. Or am I going to be fighting a loosing battle?To be fair I like the blunt tips but I keep hearing people talking about that extra drying time being a risk of mildew.
