Rant: I miss my locs :( :(
Thanks <3 good advice!
hey! I was in the exact same boat. I wanted dreads for almost a year. and I wanted them bad! I could never stop thinking about it. but I was so worried about stuff that really didn't matter....
after all the worrying and wondering what people would think/say...I just said one day "screw it!" and I did it.
I had to get it out of my system. if I never did it I would always wonder....
halfway through having the, done I was having second thoughts but by the time they were done I was suprer happy and every day I love them more and more. I honestly love my dreads sooomuch and my only regret is waiting so long to do them!
my dreads were an act of self love. because I stopped caring about what other people thought and did it for me.
if you feel pulled towards getting dreads then go for it! everything has it's purpose and you could learn a lot about yourself if you just go for it. don't worry about trying to fit into some box....just be you I think a classical singer with dreads would be awesome!!!!
love and light
thanks everyone. I feel better now I think I just need to surrender. they will turn out how they turn out I guess. I think I was getting flusterd because a few of my dreads on the top of my head have sections that are a tad more than an inch....(I measured) lol! but I'm sure I'll be fine
love and light!
so my babies are 2 weeks old and I love them so much. I really love the thickness they are at and I don't want them to turn into fatty's.
I have 42 dreads, and un-dreaded bangs....most of my sections are 1 inch and there are a few that are a tad bigger than an inch.
my hair was fine and thin pre-dreading and I guess I'm just hoping that they are not all going to be an inch thick a few years from now.
is there anyone who's dreads didn't thicken up much? looking for people who's dreads stayed thinner than the root section I guess...
I really don't want to comb any out...I love them and feel attached to them and they are locking up so nicely!!!
