I have noticed that now my dreads are getting crazy long, they are also obviously getting incredibly heavy when I wash them. This in itself isnt a problem, but now I am starting to see little white bits around my scalp when my hair is drying, and closer inspection shows that it is actual hair roots! You know when you pull a hair out, it can also pull out the entire root as well, like a little white blob on the end? Well LOTS of those.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this happening, or is it not something to worry about? I would hate for this to be a sign that my dreads are going into some awful weakening state!
