Having a happy first week natural
Well first off just let me say how relaxing and fun this is just from the beginning, nothing hurt, my hair feels good not damaged and I see progress. On the 9th or 10th (pretty sure the 9th, my Husbands thinks so too but who know for sure) I was having an awful time trying to find the brush so I went on threw with starting the process I had been wanting them for forever (had a bad set 10 years ago) and been looking into exactly how I wanted to do it for the last few weeks and I felt ready.
My hair loves to tangle and seperate into little groups on it's own so I was pretty sure my hair would do really well and I think it is. I have 3 baby dreads on the back on of my neck and pieces really sticking together, they are small but I would prefer mostly smaller dreads with a few bigger ones in the back. It just feels like things are going right this time.
My husband is so supportive and makes sure the back doesn't get too stuck together and is hand carving me some beads and also trying to make a swirly chinese dragon but it'd be long time before I'd be able to wear to anyways. He is using cherry wood and I hope that is okay. We will get him some carving and wood burning suppiles soon.
I have the products I am currently using and pics up in my profile. I ordered the dreadlock shampoo and sea salt spray though too and I can't wait to try it out. I think I might buy some embroidery string tomorrow to make some criss cross wraps just for fun.
I'm gonna update with pictures and a blog posts pretty often since I really enjoyed reading and seeing other peoples dread journey. Thanks for reading
