Today i had to get put under for an endoscopy. It was kind of funny watching the nurses and anesthesiologist work around my dreads. My father cant get past this stigma that they are dirty and that only lazy unkempt people have them. Even though he knows mine are clean, so i am assuming some random strangers may also think they are a little taboo. But they were nice about it and actually touched them and worked around them hooking up my oxygen and whatnot and it made me happy. I am proud of my dreads. I think i actually love them haha. I want to grow them very very looooonggggggggggggg. I feel like they have opened up a floodgate in my life. Also i am taking up knitting, i need a healthy hobby. If anyone has any good patterns for hats and such can you send me them? well anywho..did my first BS/ACV wash today. my hair feels nice and clean and smells nice and clean. i make sure they are nice and dry before bed and if not i sit in front of the fan for a bit. Okay well goodnight everyone. More pictures next week hopefully if i have camera access. TOODLES!

So my little dread babies are coming alone nicely, at least i think so. A couple in the back have a lot of loose hair and are unraveling but i figure if they come undone then i can have a couple natural/neglect ones form. It helps that i am a rough sleeper, every morning when i wake up i feel around and they are considerably more knotted up. Some are already quite tight. I'm not sure what shampoo to use, i plan on buying bar shampoo soon, for now i have been using baby shampoo, despite it's sulfate content I like the loreal everpure sulfate free shampoo but i worry that it's too conditioning. It also has a heavy frangrance. I washed them once so far with a sulfate free shampoo for oily hair because all the exposed scalp made my oils glands produce a little more than usual so i got them good and clean. Then sat in the sun for several hours to aid in the drying process. I have blonde extremely thick curly hair i mean like shirley temple shit. so my hair is already beginning to lock in small areas and im super happy. though i know i might run into some setbacks i am optomistic. i just want to treat my dreadies with LOVE

Originally I was very nervous about getting them, I thought people would make fun or stare or any of that stuff, especially in the beginning stages. But in the end, I've never felt better and more confident with my dreads. They're short but strong, and like me they'll continue to grow and be stronger. Still working on the itching, but I'll definitely get the hang of that soon. My friends like these better than anything hairstyle I've ever tried, and so do I. I don't think I'll ever cut them off. Can't wait until I've had them a year or two and they fly past my head when I turn it. Just my testimony to the style. haha. Hope they've made made you all as happy as they made me.

The prettiest smiles, hides the deepest secrets.
The most beautiful eyes have cried as many tears.
And the kindest heart has felt the most pain

So it's been about two days with my new dreads and i love them to death. Fluffy and everything. I used the twist and rip method once, realized i didn't have enough dreads so i took them out and doubled them so i now have 44. They look more like braids on speed but i know in time they will only become more beautiful.
