A Challenge!

By: Nasya L'Bert
Posted in:

I've been enjoying my dread-locking journey, and noticing some interesting things about myself. I was quite aware of the fact that I normally play around with my hair but I notice how much it happens. My hands seem to just appear up there and mess around! I have this annoying voice in the back of my mind saying: "They're not dreading fast enough! They are still puffy!", "Maybe should separate these or uhm...", "It's not doing anything!", and "Have they dreaded yet?".

Basically I am being impatient!

While I'm sure it's not doing anything to my dreads, I feel like my arms wouldn't be so tired if I just leave them alone (and my hair can relax lol). Plus my mind will be more at ease if my hands would relax.

SO! My challenge to myself is to touch my hair less! And let them do whatever. And every time I go to touch my hair I will take three slow deep cleansing breaths and be still and stop for a moment.

Maybe you can challenge yourself to forget your hair more often. Or anything else that takes time and patience.

What habits have you learned (or learning) to let go because your dreads?

@ SE: lol hehe

@ Tara S: Your dreads are definitely looking dready from what I can see. They're all squiggly!

I know for me I actually MUST monitor what my hands are doing because I noticed I pulled out hairs from a dread (yikes!) so I have to remind myself to not touch my hair in a judgmental way and instead more in a loving accepting way.

Same here, I decided to stop touching them so much, and also looking at them. I find that when I touch them they feel dreaded, and when I look at them I'm like, "well this doesn't look like a dread." So I don't often look at them. I do like messing with them though lol the ones that are more dreaded and tight and everything, because then it makes me happy how much they feel like dreads. Or what I'd imagine dreads feel like, at least.
