As some of you know, I am in the process of salon recovery. The last week or so I have been brushing out manufactured locks from the rear of my head and breaking them up into smaller locks, then tnr them.
Today, I decided to try to brush out the front ones. To my surprise, they came out a lot easier than those in the back . . . except for the roots that were completely matted. Anyway, would it be ok to leave the front to neglecteven though I already tnr the back?
I never imagined I would do this. I was only going to do 3 or 4 all together. But one day at a time, two locks a day, I eventually went from 30 locks to 57. Now I have another 25-30 in the frontthat need to be done.

I have been brushing (forking) my dreads out one by one and re dreading them by tnr evey day. maybe one or two a day but reducing each one to make them into three. The locktition that did my original locks tied these tiny little knots throughout, where I could not even get close to combing out so I ripped or cut them out. I still had plenty of hair, but of course I lost quite a bit too. The hair that I brushed out also was very damaged, frizzy and brittle. I have only had them for three months. Is this normal? Did she make the knots with a crochet hook? Will my dreads recover? Is this normal in this situation? My sister just cut her dreads out all together. She didn't have the patience to work them through.

Anyone know of a place I can get a quality swim cap? I like to swim and I hesitate because I don't want to sit with a blow dryer every day. I looked at eggheadsoques.com. Is that a good cap?

First time doing this I grabbed all of the details from a specific user on youtube. Seeing all the build up get removed had me really curious. I normally have been going to a stylish once every 2 months. She just deep cleans it and styles it after. But the water is never too murky looking. So I want to try this out and see if it will be worth continuing since I normally see the stylist.

Just wanted to share my vlog on my dreadlocks journey, answering the question, "Why do I have dreadlocks?" as well as discussing what it has taught me about judgment and acceptance. I really hope you enjoy it!! Please comment and share your journey with me if you have a YouTube channel! I would love to follow your journey and share in that process with you!

'So my mom helped me with two more fatties. I think I can make 4 new ones from one and 3 new ones from the other. The knots were so tight, felt like beads in there. I lost a few clumps of hair but hopefully I can recover. '.
I will wash and tnr tomorrow. I have two or three more to brush out. Now I see how huge those were. Too bad. I feel sad cuz I was 12 weeks in and my roots were dreading already. Took a few hours to get two dreads out! I don't know how those knots got in there.

I have a confession. After eight days of pretty surprising progress, I conditioned and combed my hair out last month. I freaked out over something or other, but you know what? I'm tired of freaking out, man. Or should I say, it's time to let my freak flag fly?
I have decided that I no longer care what anyone thinks--or more likely does not think--of me or my hair. Sure, some will notice, some will judge. But this journey won't let me go; I must stop combing and let peace and light into my life like never before.
The world is on its own trajectory for ill; I refuse to go the way of the world. Instead, I will work to be something positive, something better among the refuse of hate, corruption, greed, vanity and superficiality.
I am a dreadlock. Like Moses, Abraham, and the holy Prophets, I am a dreadlock. Like the Hebrew peoples, like Samson, like St. Moses the Ethiopian, I am a dreadlock. Like the Scoti and Pict, like the druid of old, like the Wise Men, the Magi. I am a dreadlock.
I am not Rasta. I am not a pothead. I do not wish I were another race. I am who I am. I am a white man.
And I am a dreadlock. Today and tomorrow, I am a dreadlock.
