ok locked folks, i need your help. im 4 months natural now and i decided to pull apart a forced fake congo that wasnt doing well. my hair looked fine after i saw it in a mirror in a room with low light, but i was distressed with what i saw under the bathroom lights. the locks that i pulled apart had this dull white buildup, i think it was trapped inside the lock. after closer inspection, just about any lock has this buildup, im sure its even worse inside. i dont know what im dealing with here. is it dandruff, mold, salt, the fabled bronners+hard water problem, or maybe something else? it is really frustrating. i have been care free for 4 months apart from method experimentation (just stick to natural and save yourself some headaches) and having this happen is a shot to my confidence. i let locks happen because i thought it would be calming; moldy hair is not calming. i guess i will start doing things from the wax removal thread tomorrow. share with me what you know.
