Hi, Hope this is the right place to post. I'm new here. so heres a little story how i came way to close to combing out my new dreads last night! (don't worry they are still safe)
So last night my sis in law and I we're looking through her wedding pics, i was made of honour and had very long dark brown curly hair. And I had that horrible feeling when I looked at the photo and said "I miss my long curlies" to which my bestie went on to say how beautiful my hair looked on the day.
I'm a bit impulsive and though for a brief second right thats it wheres the comb. But something made me wait. And now I wake up with my lil dreads still there and feeling happy about it now. I mean it was so tough seeing those pics, But I've chosen this journey to not be a slave to my image anymore and he identity i found in it. I cut my hair pretty short about 7mnths before dreading as I had a lot of comments about looking like someone famous even from strangers and it was kinda embarrassing as I actually like the actress! so off came the hairs. I am a drama student myself and have done some film work. But I know for a life choice as fun as it is, that is not the life I want to live. I want to train to be a drama therapist, and be a good steward in caring for the planet. And this set of dreads is like me nailing my colours to the mast.
This is my new image, as yes family and friends say the liked my curly hair better. But this is me now.
if you dont own a comb you have to buy 1 in or5der to comb them out that added delay maybe enough to come to your senses so ..throw all your combs away
SE this is a great idea! now I know what people mean when they say they throw away the combs literally. Thanks for your replies to my posts!
