hellloooooo :) (does this even belong here?)
You sent me a chat thingy but mt tablet is stupid and doesn't want me to chat :/ I don't believe we've met, though aren't we all aquainted in a way...
Yes. Waxy indeed. Waxy and worked on by my silly ex, who believed that daily furious backcombing was the ultimate way to great dreads... which was all gravy until all my dreads fell apart and I had an inch of hair left. The first set he would wax so much that I had to sleep with them covered and they got all linty and gross. And the second set I did on my own, semi waxy, but ostly just a hurried, impatient mess. The trial and error was helpful though, four years into this set I finally have what I always wanted, no wax and no combs required.
My only issue ow is the compulsive twisting that I just can't stop no matter what I do, I'm so bad with it that I get weak spots and if I don't sew them up they break off. I know it's horrible but I just can't stop, can't keep my hands out of my hair, and the worst part is I'm always doing it to the weak spots, telling myself it helps but knowing it's the culprit of the issue. I'm kinda crazy, compulsive for sure, maybe I need to find something else to do with my hands but I just can't stop touching themmmm. And touching leads to twisting. And twisting leads to breaking. Almost all of my original locs are gone!!
