so my hair seems to like to zig zag up from the bottom and make a huge hanging mass on the ends. i have one that's pretty big and it has some hairs that are pulling on my scalp. i tried to loosen it today using conditioner and olive oil but its not budging. does anyone else have weird dreadlocks like me? how do i go about relieving the tension on my scalp without cutting the dang thing off? it seems to get tighter everyday. oh and the section is kind of triangle shaped, could that be the reason?

i got the stickiness too from dr. bronners. i stopped using it. i read online that most people that wash their hair with bs/acv or "no poo" usually pour the bs mixture on dry hair. the bs will bind to the oils on the hair and scalp. leave it on for about 5 minutes and then rinse. then do the acv rinse. i'm going to try this out myself sometime.
just be careful. there's a guy on youtube that wore a beanie all the time and it resulted in one massive beanie shaped dreadlocks. make sure you move your hair around in the hat and also take it off when you don't absolutely have to wear it.
i've been wearing my wool tam to bed every night and it been helping with the knotting. i found two new knots this morning. also doing sea salt sprays on my hair on the days in between washings is helping roughen up my hair a bit so its more prone to knotting and not so soft.
