I took to the Nappturality forums and although some who responded had experienced the same thing, no one had a definite answer as to what causes it. It's certainly not a bud because I know how those look. Now, with the exlusion of the past few weeks, I have been taking pretty good care of my hair. I wrap it up at night, I eat relatively well and I keep it moisturized. I have heard people tell me all the time, just let your locs do what they do, but its hard for me to just ignore my hair for the most part. Has this ever happened to any of you as a part of your journey? Please do share!
