The first little test last weekend

To be honest, this is the third time i am trying to grow my hair into dreadlocks. The last try was maybe 4 years ago with the twist and 

rip method. I combed them out during the third month of dreading and also cut my hair short :-/

This time, i'm also in the third month of not combing my hair, but without t&r, just natural :-) In this phase of dreading process, my hair

does a lot of self-separation. It has a couple of very curly strands on top and some pretty steady baby locks at the lower back of my head.

I was visiting my parents and some old friends for the last weekend. It was for the first time while i'm into my dread journey. Last time I was for a visit, i was just growing my hair long, so everything was still looking pretty neat...

I must say, everything went pretty well! I took a beany with me, just in case a want to hide my messy hair for a little bit, but i did not wear that hat for a minute and totally enjoyed it! I did prove to myself that i really want to be successful in the dreading process this time. I can accept the messy look of my hair, without having to hide it to certain people or at certain places (work, etc.) Maybe i was a little shy at the beginning of this new journey, but i feel pretty confident right now. In the future i guess, i will not hide my messy looking hair any more. I will show it with pride to anybody and anywhere!

Thank you all for reading my little story,and  i hope you are as successful as i was at the tests our journey will offer to everyone of us dreadlock lovers...

Have a nice day!

Yes, you are absolutely right! And liberating for sure, because society expects a certain neat look, and we don't care :-)

The most liberating fact for me about the messy faze is weeding out the douches in society. If they judge the cover and don't read the book i don't need them in my life ;).
