it turns out that if you ask the internet a question, everyone has answers! this is the best news ever!
so here is my dire situation:
this is what my hair used to look like. (pre-september). It is really long and really thick.
Then one hot autumn day i went swimming in the sea. This Sea to be exact:
Post-ocean swim my hair didn't receive the proper treatment.. and POOF! my head of hair is now nested on the top of my head in ONE GIANT NEST. like a big hair-hat.
If you happen to be one of the average seven to eighteen people who reads this.. and you know of a great way of combing out dreadlocks.. please help.
