Help! Having a wobble :(
Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support
Not sure if it's the same in states, but "having a wobble" means starting to get cold feet about something - not being sure, doubting yourself etc. I'm having my wobble about dreads. AArgh!!
It's been 3 wks of not combing, using a natural bar soap, now onto bicarb soda. But I do put my hair up a lot of days, which I know slows it down. I'm guessing it's probably normal in the early stages, especially as I'm surrounded by non-dready folks,and just starting a course in training to be a complementary therapist. There fanatical about professional appearance etc.
My family support me - hubby, kids, and my daughter thinks I'd look pretty. She said she'd be sad if I stopped. So just looking for a listening ear, and support to keep me on the right track.
oh, and no-one understands the natural process, even my hippy yoga teacher, who said she had dreads years ago, now has dread falls, and said "I thought we were supposed to be becoming more normal now." I guess she means as we get older.
