Gash On My Head.
I slipped in my friends bathroom the other day and hit my head on the toilet paper roll holder and got a really nasty gash just under one of my dreads. I was afraid I was going to have to brush out my lock to access the hurt area. I was also worried about the fact that I only wash my dreads once a week and didn't want to get an infection. I cleaned the area with peroxide and used and antibacterial soap. I then applied Neosporin to theroot of the lock and using a blow dryer I was able to melt the Neosporin deep under my dread to my scalp. It still hurts but, I am glad I was able to treat without having to upset my lock. If anyone has any thoughts or other suggestions on how I could have done things differently (aside from hurting myself in the first place) please let me know. Peace and love.
