I've heard that people sometimes comb out their dreads, but i don't know if that's a good idea. How would i go about doing that? Is it possible at all? What will my hair look like afterwards?
Now i know that everyone's hair is different and it all depends on how solid your dreads are and whatnot, but i was wondering if anyone in this community has experience with this. Any before/after pictures, experiences, hints and tricks etc. would be highly appreciated.
(dirty fingernails, an empty beerbottle and livejournal in the background. hmm, i just love how i'm representing myself here.)
as you can see in the full versions of those pictures, my locks aren't all that locked; lots of loose hairs and frizzies. The ends are pretty weak too, and i can pull them apart completely without too much effort. My hair's still pretty soft and straight and shiny (it looks greasy in the pictures but that's mostly due to the flash) too, and not too dried out and afro-like.
Thanks in advance.
p.s. i swear to god, the white stuff on my shoulders isn't dandruff. haha.
