shrinkage,lumps, balls, tails and loose roots!
me, too! i'm glad i'm not alone. i personally hate mine. it's like a flat lump at the bottom of loose hair. mine have wimpy looking strings of hair hanging off the ends, too. definitely not what i had expected since most of the people i see on here have really pretty compact dreads with nice flowy ends. oh, well. what do we do. we can't choose the way our hair type wants to dread. hopefully we'll have something beautiful in the end:)
