After WEEKS of researching, watching dread videos, looking at dreadlock products and trying different methods, I've finally started my dreads.
They're a little thicker than I wanted, but I eventually want extensions and it's taking forever to do them anyway. Damn, I've lost quite a bit of length from backcombing.
I've crotched the bottoms, which was probably a bad idea, but since my hair is ridiculously manageable it'll probably help stop them falling out.
My partner wasn't happy about me getting them -with the oldargumentthat dreads are for black people- but through compromise *cough*femalemanipulation*cough* she came round and even sectioned some of my hair for me. :D
Unfortunately, now I've got half a head of fuzzy dreadlocks and my mum's coming over in a couple of hours. Wont she be surprised.
Where's my hat?
