I've had my dreads for two years now, never used any wax or any products, only crocheted and felted one dread as a test, most of them are untouched. Some have become blunt by the ends curling over and becoming part of the dread or the tips becoming brittle and breaking off, some ends are still loose. Some of these have hard strands of a few hairs coated in gluey, fuzzy residue... I wonder what this is?? It can't be scratched off or washed off, it's like the hair is somehow stuck together and the only thing I can do it cut that part off.
The bad thing I am guilty of, is using conditioner (only natural hemp etc.) on these undreaded ends so they don't break off so much, I also sometimes rub essential oils in them. Could this be what is causing this?
Love and Raspect
