My blog “Aged 6” you can read it here http://www.blacktomyroots.com/aged-6/ this blog details my hair journey and some of the reasons why we as black women have difficulty with the idea of wearing our natural hair and feeling secure in our own skin.

For your dreadlocks removal you will need;

1) Water
2) Spray bottle (optional)
3) Conditioner
4) Crochet needle
5) Rat tail comb
6) T-shirt

Step 1
Wet hair with water till very damp but not dripping, use the t-shirt to dry hair if it gets too wet.

Step 2
Apply some conditioner on a few dreadlocks and work into your hair.

Step 3
Take the crochet needle and start picking out the dreadlocks, I warn you that this process is excessively time consuming but you have to keep focused on the goal of free flowing hair. Watching a movie can help pass the time!

Step 4
Use the rat tail comb to comb trough the freed hair.

Step 5
Wash, condition, twist and oil the freed sections of hair until the next session as it may take quite a few until you finish.

Once you’ve un-picked all of your dreadlocks wash and deep condition your hair. Check out a great naturalista “Yolanda Renee” http://youtu.be/A9ZH99–eTk who has a series on how to take care of your natural hair.

The feeling of having free flowing hair is awesome checkout my twistout in the video.

I hope this helps.
