Been seeing a lot people post about growing dreads from short hair and whether or not it's a good route to take. The truth is, is that that's how dreads grow naturally. Cavemen were not rocking bob's and your hair will look fine as it grows into locks. I shaved my head to start fresh and took my vow. Wanted to start fresh. Quit drinking, smoking cigarettes, Ital diet (medical reasons as well, Fibromyalgia), and all drug's (was a Heroin addict, clean for 3 years). So 10 months later all the hair on my head is locking nicely and the more I wash them (BS Essential Oils, ACV) the tighter they are. People say to be patient but I would recommend not waiting. If you believe your soul never dies then you have nothing to wait for in the first place and time's an illusion. But not to get on a Rastafari philosophical rant, never wait and nothings ever late. Remember too that what you put into your body you will carry in your dreads. Mind your head, and follow the voice in your heart. I pray that Jah bless's your journey and that you have or can find peace of mind. Jah Bless
P.S. - Say I was an addict because the I have been healed from the PTSD and trauma. Remembered who I am through Haile Selassie I. If you label yourself as an addict you don't allow yourself to grow and change lifestyles. Just my opinion or a topic I have endured and a topic that has taken many friends of mine in this life. Any questions comments don't hesitate.
