the roots at the base of my neck have always just been naturally dreaded pretty close. i was never too worried about it or anything but one of them in this one spot it almost matted completely to my head and it pulls my skin if i touch the dread at all. that part doesn't bother me quite so much it's more the constant soreness. i don't do too much root maintenance so i just assume it's because of it's location it's locked up so much. it's not THAT BAD because it's a thin dread and it's only some of the root.
should i just let it be or should i actively try to fix it? how would i go about doing that? conditioner? try to brush the root out a bit? ideas?
