I have decided to comb out my dreads which were made by crochet and had extension. There felt fake and it did not feel right! On top of that my scalp was screaming to be free from this dreads that were too tight. I knew that I lot of my hair would be damaged and fall off but I prefered to comb them out and start from new. There were a lot of added hair in my dreads even mixted with my own hair so maybe that helped protect a bit my hair. It was hard for me to see which of the hair I took out by combing was mine. Anyways, the result is not to bad. My hair is more thin but it looks still healthy. (see picture)
Now I am going the neglect way and I am super excited about that. I want to grow old with my dreads. I have a few questions ;
are they long enouph to dread?
All I do know is wash and not comb?
Since I used a lot of conditioner to comb them out, should I wait a bit to start the neglect way?
