Every since I had dreadlocks, I have been getting neck problems. My neck is always sore, cramped, achy. It's hard to turn my head to the side. Wearing them down gets in the way, but wearing them up causes even more pain. I wash my hair every other day because it just gets oily...and I would prefer not to smell like an oily scalp even though I personally don't mind it.
I find it very hard to be comfortable when I sleep. My hair gets in the way, and putting it in a bun just does something more to my neck pain. Ive seen the doctor and they said everything is fine, but that it might be the weight of my hair and the certain little hairs growing, tugging, and pulling giving that tension sensation to my scalp.
Does anyone have any tips or advice on neck pain? Last night was so bad that I almost to the clippers to my head.
