Finally took the plunge!
garism:Hey welcome to the beautiful journey! There will be a lot of changes through it but as long as we are happy and focus on what we want, it will turn out great and nice. Just don't worry much on what people say, esp the bad things coz they don't have the right to. Patience is all we need! Stay happy! Peace x
Thankfully so far everyone is pretty nice about it other then the initial "you can't wash your hair if you have dreads right?" Which I think Is funny. I'm sure it'll get annoying after a while, but I'm extremely excited to watch the development of the locks :) thank you for the kind words!!
Yes; I have also heard so many people either to my face or behind my back say that we don't wash our hair...I've told them quite contrary, I think a big part of the journey is learning to love yourself, your natural, beautiful self and becoming less dependent on what others think. Because even if they don't say it to your face, they're going to think what they want. That is their business not ours. I only hide in my hats as needed; which is not often now. Good luck to you; and I hope your journey is as enlightening and loving as possible.
