a few questions, and i apologize if i missed the answers in the memories:
first: i realise this is probably a dumb question, but is it possible to clear some of the hair that has fallen out naturally out of dreadlocks? i generally loose probably close to a small handful of hair a day, and i can see dreads on me getting very heavy, very fast. when i had very long hair, keeping it up in a bun gave me neck and headaces constantly, and i would want to keep these dreads as light as possible.
second: i have an...interesting scalp that gets dry and greasy all at the same time. if i kept the dreads loose near the scalp, would it be too difficult to wash my scalp once or twice a week? would the dreads get all moldy from the moisture?
basically, i'm trying to decide what is more convenient for me currently; ironing or dreading. i'm a full time art student, and my time for matinence is a little limited. any help is greatly appreciated!
