haha, I remember a couple time thinking that maybe starting dreads was a bad idea, usually when I would look in the mirror I liked how they looked, cept maybe on the sides,
after having them for awhile, I completely love them over my older hair, especially now that I'm noticing its growth. and the numerous changes they've made.
I get a lot of random people that say things like "love the dreads" *and the weird questions "do you ever wash it?"*
but i gotta say I'm glad I didn't lose my conviction and stayed with it.
well that and I don't think I could ever go back to having short hair.
but I don't think its entirely accurate to say that even someone going the natural route the first time through wouldn't freak out about the early stages, I know I did, and a friend of mine who did it natural with her current set, it can just get discouraging,
just gotta remember its inevitable for it to all work out. and you have to go into it knowing that.
I had a younger friend of mine who backcombed all his hair , then took it out the next day or 2 cause his girlfriend gave him shit and he gave up, then asked me to help him next time he did it. of course I tried to remind him of that, its just weird that some people don't realize that this isn't just a simple hair style.
anyway I don't wanna ramble anymore :)
i would like to thank SE for starting this discussion, and Iain for replying as well. because i was starting to feel that my dreads arent good enough (looked in the mirror today lol) because they are very very frizzy. i have had them for just over a month. i know that they're meant to be frizzy but i cant help but just notice how frizzy they really are. i know that in a year i will look back at this and think that i am being silly right now because its all gonna work out fine lol.
yes i would like to thank you SE for starting this. do you get annoyed by questions?
