dont want a messed up scalp, dont want to cut, thinking about combing out!
Help! Save My Dreads
so long story short when i was 16 my friend backcombed in some dreads, he sectioned all the hair off first with rubber bands and then dreadded them one by one. 2 years later for some stupid reason i cut them. always used kb shampoo bar and never had even a flake of druff!
10 months ago i decided i wanted them back. a friend of a friend put them in. didn't section them off one by one and instead grabbed random sections and began backcombing and stabbing them with a hook and then im pretty sure she threaded the end through the root and pulled it tight.
so it took them about 3 months to lay flat and i had some seriously bad dandruff, bleeding sores and lumps!
so right now the druff isn't as bad but it's still there and i still picking lumps of yellow skin off my head! some of the dreads are ok at the root but some just feel like they're stretching my scalp! im sure they're not supposed to be like that? i was debating cutting them off/combing them out and starting all over again.
obviously would like to comb out rather than shave as id have to grow my hair again to dread it. want to know what everyones oppinion is? id obviously like to keep them in because some are really tight and i'd be losing 10 months progress but at the same time i want my healthy scalp back!
