White strands of hair in dreads

So i have noticed that in almost all of my mature dreads i have some white strands of hair. The white strands also break very easily. Some of the hairs also looks a bit "furry", i don't know how to describe it.

I tried to take a picture of it but its very hard. I took a picture with a "normal" strand of hair besides one of the white ones.

Do anyone have an idea of what this is?

You look on the young side to me, but don't be surprised if it is not grey hairs since they are the length of the strand. People in their early 20's can get them. ....peace

It's definitely not gray hairs. This is something else, if i scrape them they kinda dissolves to some white powder lol.

Maybe a bit dusty but not excessively. I have washed with the BS and ACV wash all the time.

Spiderweb? Im pretty sure its not spiderweb lol.

It seems like this white thing surrounds the strand and you can scrape it off.

maybe the bs/acv is too harsh to use then maybe try something more gentle a bit like dreadlockshampoo

Yeah but then i have to order from the us.

If you leave in the ACV without washing it out, could this be the result from doing that? Someone told me you shouldnt wash it out so i did that the first year or so.

hmm.. This is an interesting situation/thread.. Yes, that could very well have a bit of an effect on the situation... When you break these white strands are they oily? Could be some type of oil buildup or something.. hmm.. not sure though.. Much love and peace to you all :D!
