I have decided to take my dreads out, it's a sad decision, but I miss having soft hair. I know that Knottyboy and DreadheadHQ have dread removal kits (although i can't find it on the dreadheadHQ site now..). But i wanted to know if there were any tips somebody could give me. Does it work the first time? Should i use a regular conditioner to loosen them, and then use the kit? Hopefully somebody else has done this before Thank you all!
