ended up taking one out last night, and then relised it was a mistake..for what reason i dont know. the effort of removing the single lock hurt, my hands and my scalp...However i took a dread out last night because i was trying to escape the feeling of dandruff inside it. didnt work, i still have copious amounts of it in numerous dreads.
anywho here is the state of my current locks. Really awful. but oh well.
