Here starts the journey! Mums with dreads.....
Dreads in the Family
I am bit late to the discussion but hey aren't I always? lol.
I am a Mama (34) to two awesome kiddo's 5 and 3 and this is my second set of dreads, I did my first set when I was 30 before my daughter was born and I was about 6 months in when I combed them out because my Mom convinced me that as a Mom I needed to "look the part" so I caved.
Now i am three weeks in to the second set and I love it, doing all natural this time and enjoying the process and not giving a rip what anyone else thinks.
For me this is a personal and transforming journey both in and out, beginning with health and eating properly and also letting go of perceived notions of beauty to facing judgement of those around me and learning to stand up for my choices.
Cheers to you fellow Dreadie Mamas!!
