when i first started dreading my hair, all i was thinking about was how awesome my hair would look. but now 3 months since i stopped combing my hair, i have realized it is not about getting to the destination(dreaded hair), but about the journey. at first, i didn't understand how people were so patient about their hair locking. but now i've realized why. my hair changes everyday. a new dread will start to form within hours, and others will fall apart in minutes. i feel like as my hair is forming together, i am finding out who i really am. i am growing as a person as my hair is forming together. to me, it's not even about having amazing locked hair, it's so much more than that. i never knew that do this to my hair would change who i am as a person, and the way i look at life. i love it so much, and can't wait to see where life takes me and my dreads.

oh i don't care where it is! i just didn't know what to put it under so i just left it.

but yeah, i think it's important for people to know what they are getting into, because it's not just about the hair style. it's a life style.

i'm glad people know what i'm talking about. it's amazing that just ditching a comb can change who you are.

I can see that in your photos. You look radiant!

This morning I looked in the mirror thinking 'this looks gross', then realized that's my own negative stuff coming out, nothing to do with my hair (which is doing its thing just fine). In this way my dreads are a much better mirror than the one on my wardrobe door - or the one in my mind. All these little changes, like your description of dreads forming and falling apart by the hour.

Rock on dreadie sista! I feel very similar to this, had I not begun my journey, I never would've picked up knitting to make tams or learned how to make peyote sleeves and I love doing both, so relaxing for me and I owe it all to my dreading journey :D

Have a peaceful day
