so lately ive noticed that there is mildew in my locks.
now, i know this is normal.. and maybe im making a big deal about it, but bear with me.

i do wash my locks a good bit, about 3 times a week, sometimes more.
after i wash them, i squeeze as much water out as possible, then i do the "metal head" thing.
then i towel dry for at least half an hour.
after that i spend about an hour and a half drying them with my hair dryer.
now, even after all of that the ends are still fairly damp.
i have a very very hard time getting them bone dry.

sometimes i notice the smells, and the mildew only shows up at the ends, which happen to be blonde.. so its very noticable.

the reason i got dreadlocks in the first place was because i was tired of spending 4 hours on my hair everyday.
and after 10 months im actually starting to enjoy them, i cant wait to see how they progress.
but id HATE to have to get rid of them because im not able to get them dry enough.
damn having thick hair!

so, im curious as to an easier, or faster way to get my locks dry.
a friend has told me about a type of towel that soaks up more water than a normal towel. how true is this?

and heres some pictures, cause i havent posted in a while.
