Sad, but hanging in there...

Journey is 9 months plus now, backcomb with wax at the beginning but the wax is gone. I wash my hair with BS/ACV once a week and just plain water the rest of the time. I do separate the strands often. I see progress but my husband doesn't.

We are seeing his family tomorrow for a mini-reunion and he asked me this morning if I was going to fix my hair before then. I don't know how to describe the blank look he gives me when I tell him that there really is no "fixing" it. I can not only see the progress, but I can feel it all over. I guess because my hair was always so "neat" that he's having a hard time with this.

I'm dreading tomorrow (hah, pun not intended). Last time we saw some bonus relations (not blood, but marriage), a couple of girls close to my daughter's age made some snide comments about my hair where she could overhear. She's not disposed to liking those girls anyway (preppy/snobby) and this didn't help any. I told her that mean kids are always mean and just don't let it get to her. Kids at her school know about me & my hair - dreads are no big deal there, they just think it's amusing because I'm white and that goes against stereotype.

This time around, it will be my husband's mother & sdad, his sister and her husband, and most likely his brother and family. I'm sure it's all gone around the grapevine what I have done and they've gossiped. I don't want my husband's feelings hurt and I definitely don't want to put up with mean people crap.

Oh well, I'm an adult and I'm going to act like one. Just smile and be friendly and if they do say something to my face, remind them that I am old enough to do what I want with my own hair. LOL

It was just my description, but if you lived thru the 1980s you'd recognize the type. I don't know what they are called nowadays, lol. My daughter is a go with the flow kinda girl and people who are rigidly snobby are a bit confusing to her.

it seems strange tro me that "preppy' still exists as a clique since i doubt anyone seriously wants to be preppy but its more just they are expected to be...they are either afraid to stand out as indivuduals or feel presyred even forced to confoem to an artifucial "norm"
