It seems my hair was listening to me when I said I didn't want blunted tips. And it decided to teach me a lesson.
A quarter of my dreads have blunted themselves at the tip. All of my fatties and a good batch of skinnies. Some of them have just folded themselves right in half. Still more are very thick or paddle-y with skinny little rat tails hanging off of them.
And I love it. It's ridiculous. I have found the beauty in the blunted tips.
I promised myself that once I tnr'd I wouldn't do anything else to prevent my hair from doing what it wanted beyond separating. I didn't want blunted tips or paddles but I was committed to the journey and letting my hair do it's thing. Well my hair wanted paddles and blunt tips and apparently so did I.
Good life lesson there. I will continue going with the flow and let go of my expectations. The universe will give me what I need if not what I think I want.
