I've had the itch to change my hair lately, not the mention the physical itch that's been plaguing my scalp for months now. After much thought, I decided it's time to comb my hair out.
To try and pick through it all in one shot seems like way more than I'm willing to take on, so I'm shampooing and conditioning with salon-quality products, then gently combing through just a few inches of hair while letting the conditioner sit. I figure it took almost 10 months to get me this knotted up, why try and reverse it all in just a few hours?
The cool thing about this is that I'm finding that I had a lot more progress than I had thought before trying to comb my hair out. I can't BELIEVE how thick and knotted some of my dreads have gotten -- I have some real, true dreadlocks in my hair and I wasn't even aware of how strong and locked they were. Awesome!
But I'm still going to try and comb them through, hopefully within a week I'll be back to straight hair. I enjoyed watching their progress, but for my hair type, I think that I would probably do things differently the next time.
I'll post some pictures of the progress soon. This new process is kind of exciting: I'm eager to see what my hair will look like as it gets combed through!
