Help! Save My Dreads
:( That's so sad... My first instinct is to ask how they became unattached from his head... but that's reallyirrelevant. The thing is, I don't know about your friend, but if mine were to come unattached from my head for whatever reason, (except maybe something like chemo or something of that nature), then crocheting them back on just wouldn't be there same. Once cut andseparated, I'd feel they were lost...
Now on the plus side, your friend has 3 or 4 inches of hair, I think I read somewhere on here that you could start a fresh set with 3 inches (I might be wrong, but if so, if not by much). He could look at this as a shedding of any oldnegativity, trauma, drama, etc... and now has a chance to start brand new with something as amazing as dreadlocks to mark theoccasion. If you think about it, that's really pretty awesome! I think if I were him (and I'm not so I can't speak for what happened or how he is feeling), I'd make changes that I knew I needed to make (we all have some of those), and go for it.
He should start a timeline NOW, so he can look at his progress of both his hair and is well-being.
I know it's not much, but I hope it brings him some peace...
