I'd like to say that Umberto looks like this because of the hair taking over but no he's just fighting because she grabbed a toy.
But look at the hair...it's starting to take over the living room. It's wild, out of control, and way to scary to take a brush to it.
Okay so I'm a bit mortified that we let it get this bad but the combing out is a nightmare. She screams like we're killing her. She even fights, as in claws and hits us. It's a real nightmare.
Obviously, I need to figure out how to tame this beast in a way that is not painful to her. Today I tried not using shampoo, and just using a conditioner. Someone I know recommended not combing it but I think if we did that it would dread (it was starting to in the above pictures) and I so do not know how to care for dreads.
It looks beautiful right now. And it feels great. I left the conditioner in rather than washing it out. Combing her hair out was still a nightmare . I really wish she'd let us cut it.
