I just wanted to say thanks to everybody who took the time to answer my question about sleeping on the locs at night without having them erupt on my head. ;-) Your suggestions and advice were all very helpful. I'm sleeping in a tam (which is kinda rough - it's wool and highly itchy, but not too bad) and it seems to be helping some.
I'm five days in and counting.
I'm loving this whole new experience and I hope you guys know how much you rock for being such a resource and a cool place to hang out.
