Dandruff and big lumps in some areas
they need to be undone because if not theres a rishk the dread will break right off if it dont break u will aleways have a weak spot
interlocking is drastic u force the whold dread through the roots theres great strain on it that tends to cause the dread to break right off

i didn't go to a salon she was reccomended by me to a friend. you sure they need to be undone? seem's a bit drastic? surely they will work themselves out?
I would try to avoid scratching them. Sometimes you can irritate your scalp more and get scabs or something. I (prior to locking) had a compulsive habbit to pick around my widows peak on my head because of one lump I got one time, and it took forever to heal because it scabbed up and when I pulled my hair back it would irritate it and it just perpetuated the issue when I touched or messed with it. You don't want open sores or cuts on your scalp, it sucks and takes forever to heal,because of all the hair in the area pulling and messing with it.
Now if I get a big flake that is like already loose and just hanging out in my hair I find a way to pull it out, because that's annoying.

Speaking of dandruff/ lumps.... is it better to scratch and pick them off or to just let them be and fall off on their own when washing? I think I have loosened a few knots by tring to pick out dead skin, I guess it would be better to let it wash out on its own. WHat do you think?
