First question, is cutting a dread bad? Like today i was going through one of my first couple dreads, the more mature ones, and then for quite a bit of time i have noticed that there is this big chunk of fuzz in it, which is not a big deal but I've wanted to take it out for a long time and after messing with it for a bit i realized that the more i digged into it the closer to the center of the dread I would get, and mostly due to curiosity and precaution i kept kinda stabbing it a bit with tweezers until i decided just to cut it, close to the bottom like 1/2 inch to see what was in the middle.
This brings me to my second question, in the middle of the dread there was this whitish kinda looking stuff, it wasn't a gross amount for me to freak out but rather seemed to be just starting. And after messing with it for a bit most of it was gone, but still if it was in there its probably in the rest of the dread/dreads. I fear it to be mold, starting up. would that be the best guess? or could it be something else?
I've been using the bar soaps from Vicki and before that i did the lockin up shampoo. I think I'm close to 14-15 months since I started my neglect dreads
Also last thing, it seems like everytime I wash my dreads, there's some spots, especially in the very top/front of my head where there are still not very dreaded areas that start congoing, and it seems to happen all the time after washing them, anybody has any recommendations for it? A way to keep em separated or a way to prevent this.
