Helllooooo fellow dreadies well i have some news, yesterday I, out of nowhere, decided to start twistNripping myhair. It has turned out BEAUTIFUL!Iveonly done the sides and top front (near my bangs). I started to do the back but the first two I did in the back I had to take out because they were pulling hairs fromeach otherand any pre-dread I would have made after that was bound to be very painful and uneven, so I took those two out. Today I plan on moving around some mirrors so I can see the back of my head perfectly and do it right, or having my mamma help me But I'm very excited about my dreads, they look amazing, a little braidy but i knowthat'llgo away in time, I intentionally left my roots a little loose so they could lock without force.
Ive recently started putting a little lemon juice in my sea salt spray Trying to lighten it up a lil naturally, and I quite like the friziness.
Mysoul mateis sooo pumped for some locks and cant wait until his hair grows out he can see how happy and confident they have made me and loves the idea of an energy antenna connecting to his noggin. "roots" he called them the other day.."like a tree", made the analogy himself, I told him he was exactly right, and that many dreadies reffer to them as roots/garden.
sooooo excited for my dreads to mature. LOVING life and my journey.
