but I know you all like pictures, so whatever. Besides, I've got a question.
I think this will only apply to those of you with dreads that are at least six months old, and also ones that are fairly thick. Anyway, I stopped combing my hair about two years ago. I wash it every week or two and I havent always blow-dried it and so sometimes it would be wet for a day and a half or something like that. I didnt really keep track of the whole thing. Well, anyway, I noticed recently that it smells kinda gross after its been washed, and if its wet. I started blowdrying it to make sure it doesnt get moldy and because I thought it would make the smell go away. Anyway, it hasnt really gone away, its just a little more subtle. No one notices it, but it's freaking me out. It smells sort of sweet, honey-ish if you will. UGH. I hate to even admit it but WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? Now, I have tried all sorts of shampoos, ones without any smells or additives, dr. b's, peppermint, tea tree oil, Aveda. ALL OF IT. That doesnt seem to matter. In fact, my favorite so far is Aveda. Well, maybe you can help me?
Oh, and I searched some of my giganto ones for mold and there isnt any. Yeah, that is probably an important thing for you to know, they are very thick. I have one that is almost as thick as my wrist. Most of them are only a bit smaller than that. Anyways, here are the pictures. They suck and I was getting irritated.
These pictures suck at showing you what I am working with!
