Today is roughly my 6 month free forming anniversary, and I'm a relatively new member so I figured what better time to start documenting my journey!(:
A brief explanation of my dread journey, I use to be a very different person then I am today. After an intense life changing experience that brought me completely into my heart space and showed me how great of a capacity we humans have to love, however, I could no longer be that person, and have decided not to cut my hair as an outward symbol of the inward change.
Dreading was an obvious choice for me, since my hair is so thick and curly it would be unmanageable if not dreaded, and is virtually impossible to comb anyways.
I may have hindered some of the dreading process by wearing cotton headbands, so I plan to lessen that practice from this point forward, and end it all together once my hair is long enough. My main reason for this was to keep from accidentally burning my hair while holding a sacrament of herbs, but I think I'm near the end of needing to do this.
I had a lot of tight curls that were already sort of separated when I started, and they seem to be dreading in on themselves slowly over time, some have congo'd with other curls, and in 2 places small baby dreads have began to Congo, one fully and one only half way up the dreads. I have roughly 15 areas that are knotted into a section solidly enough that I would call them an "official dread", with many areas still eagerly awaiting their time to shine ^_^
Anyways, here they are! I guess I'll start calling March 12th my dreadiversary and make today the official six month mark, I'll be back in December for a 9 month check in!(:
Peace love and prosperity all!
