Dread Damage, please help! :(
Help! Save My Dreads
okay, so.. I started using sea salt spray because I heard it helped tighten up dreads quite a bit. my dreads are only 3 months old. it worked pretty good at first, I was like sweet, tighter dreads, right? I overused it and didn't wash it out as often as I should have because the sea salt spray also kept them pretty clean. I also rolled them more than I probably should have. well on my 3 month dreadiversary I washed them like I normally do, and a shitton of hair fell out. my scalp is burning, my hair is brittle and dry feeling, and my dreads thinned out A LOT, especially at the root. I folded the hair at the root over itself and put rubber bands in to keep them together for now. I know this is my bad, so please don't lecture me or anything, just tell me what I can do to help them be healthy again! and don't worry, if they come out of this alright, I WILL be going natural with them
thanks for any advice you can give me in advance.
