and the reason that i was actually going to post in the first place... was a general community appreciation post. i love you guys. really. everyone is so nice and happy and beautiful, and when i'm in a bad mood, it makes me so much happier just to come to this community and remember that i'm a part of all these wonderful people.
alright, so I finally got around to dreading my hair...and four days later (which is today); I've begun to get this weird rash on my scalp. It looks really irritated, and seems to be spreading. It doesn't itch or anything, but it is bright pink and a little bumpy. I really can't think of what it could possibly be, and it seems to only be concentrated around the base of two dreads near the back of my neck. I haven't put anything in my hair except for salt water, rubber bands, and wax (I've never had allergic reactions to any of these things before). Is this normal??? I'd really appreciate some advice! Thanks
