Blunted tips

By: Tied up in knots
Posted in:

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.

I'd say about 1/2 my tips are blunted. I don't really like them blunted, because of how fat the lock is. It can take 24 hours to dry them. But I haven't gone about and unblunted them either. I know where you are coming from. If they wanted to be blunted, they do it on their own. There are ways you can loosen them, but it's annoying and only done if you really want it. Just be aware that those few will dry much slower than the others.

Sounds cool though. I wish mine got all folded up like that

That sounds exactly like my hair. Some of my tips are really crazy and I'm curious to see how they will develop. :-)

Thats what happend to me as well, quite a few of my dreads decided to start from the tips rather than at the roots and I got one very tight, blunt and loopy tip at only 2 and a bit months! They are beautiful in their own ways
