Beauty by Mistake

  • Mood:


So I have an issue that I'm a bit worried about. I have had my dreads for almost 4 years now, but have always had a bit of what looks like white flakes forming at the ends of the dreads. They are fairly thin, so I usually just let them air dry, occasionally wringing them out with a dry towel, a couple of times through the day if I'm home.

My hair does not smell like mold or mildew. In fact, in most of the cases, it either smells like my shampoo or just like, well, hair.

So I guess my question is, how would I know for sure that these white flakes are not in fact, mold or mildew? I checked the memories to find an exact description of what would be mold, and found a really good way to try to get rid of it, if it is. If I were to cut into one of my dreadlocks, what would I be looking for? Would there have to be a smell, and would be dry and flaky or moist and icky? Someone please help clarify....
