natural dread journey

Hi everyone, just wanted to share my progress and see what you guys think. The two first pics is me at 1month and 3 weeks of the neglect method and my hair started curling up a lot, it was really fun to watch.

The next pic is me today at 4 months and 2 weeks and I'm really loving the way my hair looks and feels at the moment. My hair seems to have grown quite fast and has made so much progress thinking back on it. Now almost all my sections are beginning to get hard spots at the tips and the sections in the back are a lot more developed. I have about 4 baby dreads at the back which have pretty thick knots and some are really balled up on the ends.

I will try to upload more pics every couple of months =)

Hey everyone it's been a long time since i updated this post and the reason for that is because i combed my hair after 9 months of letting it do its thing. Looking back on it and thinking if i would have just left it alone how my locks would have looked now is a saddening thought but at the time i guess vanity got the best of me, you see i work in a shop where i serve hundreds of different people every day and seeing person after person negatively judge you in the space of a 20 second transaction is quite disheartening. At the time i told myself my hair was too short and i wasn't seeing enough progression but i guess that was just an excuse. Anyways here i am again going natural.

question how can you tell someones negatively judging you in the spaCE OF A 20 SECOND TRANSACTION did anyone actualy ever say anything? or wass it the thoughts in your head saying your being judged cause most of us dreads get nothing but support excvept for from that 1 in a thousand hell closer to 1 in 10,000 or less in all my years dreading and meeting hundreds of thousands of ppl i can think of just 2 maybe 3 that i felt judged me negativly

alotta the times its our own negative feelings that give us that perception

in a way its like asperrgers when someone smiles u think they are mocking you etc its the same if you feel unworthy or like you should be judged negativly for your choices then you will feekl like everyones thinkikng bad thoughts about you while in reality they maybe envios

yes many people said things and others merely look at you like they didn't before, in a kind of disdainful way that i would think you have also experienced? maybe i work in an area less open minded than the areas you usually visit or maybe it is the case that it's all in my head either way learning to accept myself and others more and more is an ongoing process, one that at the moment i'm feeling positive about.
