Kym, *smooches!* You said exactly what I feel about my dreads!
And Tanky, if you're gonna do the comb thing I highly advise you do it now before it gets going much more. My first set of locks were eight months along when I decided to comb them out and I cried like a baby for four hours straight. Or was it five. I can't remember. I just remember thinking, "I swear to God and all that is holy that once I get my next set those bitches aren't coming out. EVER!" I had a good reason at the time for brushing them out but I really wish I'd done it months sooner.
I've got a tender scalp, though.
When i've got my hair up you can't even tell I have locks. At all. Really. Seriously! So don't worry about the professional bit. You'll figure it out as you go just what styles look best.
You can send pics from your phone. Just email them straight to your dreadlockssite email address and they go straight on your page.
I don't want to puch you into anything, but, again, I am super glad i started over and went natural. It's up to you at the end of the day, but if your dreads are very tight you might want to try and loosen them anyway. TnR should never be too tight as it slows the process.
Tanky I am tender headed also...the thought of brushes my dreads out makes me cringe. You were brave to do it once.I don't plan on getting rid of mine but if for some reason it came down to that I would probably cry the whole time. When my hair is up you can't tell my hair has locs...it just looks bumpy.
