To dread or not to..

I have had my dreads for a year now. I formed them through the natural method and had a very easy time doing so. They formed and started looking like dreads within days. I have loved them through all.

They turned a year old on the 16th of this month but for the past couple months I have been thinking more of my choice to dread. Part of me loves them, the other part of me doesn't and wants to go back to my old hair. I miss it. I miss dying my hair which chemicals and not henna, I miss using girly smelling shampoo, that was the most relaxing part of my showers. Now I hate washing my hair, taking a shower has become a chore rather than something I enjoy. I miss brushing my hair and running my fingers through it, I miss curling my hair, cutting it and putting it in cute hairstyles. I miss not having my scalp sore from my hair pulling at it and I miss not having constant headaches due to it.

I talked to my boyfriend about me possibly removing my dreads (he has them as well) and I began to cry by finally verbalizing it. I feel horrible, but I can't help it.

So my question is if any of you have gone through this before. What did you do? How did you get out of the slump?

Thanks a ton

I went off hormonal birth control last month after being on it for 2 years. My physical body is back to normal but my emotions are a bit wonky still. I wasn't planning on doing it right away, was planning on waiting a few months. But I have been feeling this way before I even got off the pill so I just wanted to know if anyone else has gone through.

you shouldn't feel horrible about not wanting your locks anymore. its your hair and in the end it is just hair after all. if your not feeling it anymore than change it. you can always dread again in the future. we're all here for you, whatever you decide. {{{lots of hugs}}}
