Having second thoughts
I started growing dreads about 2 months ago and have seen a lot more progress than I expected during that time. I love the messiness of my hair and I love dreadlocks but now that its actually becoming a reality that I am growing them, I'm worried it might not be the best thing for me.
I work in a environment where there are a lot of powdered ingredients that get everywhere, including in my hair and I'm concerned it may cause mould, especially as lately quite a few people have posted on here about finding mould in their dreads.
Also the dreads I have have shrunk so much some of them are only like 2-3inches long which means when all my hair is dreaded they'll be really short and probably take like 4 years to get back to my undreaded hair length.
I'm not sure what to do as the dreads I have would be impossible to comb out so I would have to cut my hair. Either that or I could leave my hair to dread and see how it turns out after a year or so... but then might end up cutting them off anyway if they all turn out 2 inches long so seems like a waste of time.
