Update on page one. Back into the crazy looking stage. Gotta love it.
In regards to #4 while I don't go to school I do fly a lot. And since I started dreads I have gotten pulled from the security line and had both my bag and my person searched. At first I thought it was my bag but this last time I was pulled even before my bag went through the X-ray machine for a "random check". Not so random when it's every time. Don't let it get to you.
Remember just be you and your dreads will reflect that. I learned years ago even before dreads that my hair is my hair and will never look like someone else's. And it shouldn't because it's mine not theirs.
That said my dread envy is for Castaway J's lovely dreads. I hope my hair turns out as awesome as his.
I am extremely jealous of your curly and quickly dreading mane! (i have stick straight and I feel like I've just begun what many, like you, experience in a couple of months!...but it's getting there. I mean, takes awhile, but it is doing it's thing.) Anyway, It's just awesome your progress and looks great! :)
Not sure why I didn't see this earlier. Thanks. Believe me it's not totally dreaded up at all yet. The whole back of my head is just starting to knot and I have one stubborn clump right in the middle of the left side of my head that is a compleatly loose curl. It looks lost. The good thing with it going slower is you have more control of separating.
It really does still amaze me how hair shrinks when it's dreading. I measured my front two dreads today. They are 5 inches, that hair started out as my longest at 16 inches. The shortest hair to start was 6 inches and is the longest dread at 6 inches. So odd.
just laugh at how boring and closed minded they are and flaunt how cool and open minded you are.. you need to be there so they see theres more to life then being boring and conformists
I can understand the small town crowd. Here in Eastern NC we are really rural. But I have to remind myself that I chose to do dreadlocks because it increases my sense of beauty, not everyone else's. People will always judge what is different to them.
I for one think they look awesome for 4 months and you are on track to have some really killer looking dreads in the future.
If you ever feel judged come see me at the beach before you go! We can frolic in the ocean and let the sun dry our hair. My dreads will hit 1 year come May, my husband will be at 2.5 years, another guy at church has had his for 15 years, and I just connected with another cool chick in Jacksonville who is about 2 months in now.
I will be posting some updated pics soon to show my progress. We can be dreadlocked "freaks" together!
Thank you guys. I apriciate it more than you realize. I feel a bit better today. I was stared at but got my first ever compliment. Felt pretty good.
I'll be staying in North Carolina at least until June for work. I'm still working out the details but I'm hoping my next destination will be Washington state. I do want to go to the national rainbow gathering but we'll have to see how things work out first. It sure will be a long drive.
they look great and i just noticed you remind me just a lil bit of my friend me (me is her name) i cant even figure out what about ya reminds me of her u definarely got diferent noses but its ..just an overall thing i think
its a good thing shes 1 of my fave people
I'm glad it's a good friend. I'm sad to say I've officially left Hawaii now. Despite my desire to stay some things at home require my attention. I look forward to my next possible adventure. I'm hoping my hair progress doesn't stagnate like my soul sometimes does when I'm there(home).
I've definitely experienced that. It's not painful just kind of irritating and like a tightening. Every once in a while I get a few hairs that get very tight and have to be loosened because they are pulling at my scalp. I'm about 4 months in too. Hopefully either we will get used to it or it will get better. I think it's just a transitional thing.
