QUESTION: is it safe for young dreadlocks to get bleached?

Question: young dreads that end up flat by sleeping and wearing my hat at work, will those flat ones eventually get round again or should I palm roll after showering?

Question: I don't know about other countries, but here lice is a pretty big problem. I live together with two smaller sisters, and they often get lice from people from their school. I was wondering, if you as a dreadhead were to get lice, if you'd be able to remove the lice without cutting/brushing out your dreadslocks? Like, can those little things get into the knotted dreads? (cause it'd seem like a pain to get them out) Anyway, thanks for reading this.

question... Dread mourning... how do you deal?

What are some things you can do to encourage young dreadlocks to straighten out? As my dreads are slowly starting to tighten they have gotten a few little loops sticking out. I think part of it is I have curly/wavy hair and as they aren't tightly locked yet the curls are trying to still be there. Is there anything I can do besides forcing the loop/kink back in with a crochet hook, or will that just end up creating problems in the long run?
