hey. sometimes i go through the same thing. i miss my beautiful long hair and am sick of all the questions,about washing and what was i thinking or doesnt it smell(like get real ppl)...sometimes when im having a "bad hair day" i'll put a big flower in, or wear a flowy skirt or some killer heels and itmakes me feel better about my own femininity. not to say i dont agree with soaring eagles comment, dont get me wrong i love to fly my own kinda freak flag, but sometimes a girls gotta be a girl :)

I totally agree to what Doogie wrote here. the only thing that matters is that you know that you clean them. Other people who do not have dreads also have dirty hear and no one tells them to clean them.

A good friend of mine also has dreads and when she is feeling bad she also puts a big flower in her hair and she is immediately feeling better. Due to this Isend flowers to Nottingham where she lives and she loves it. she is always feeling better with flowers in the hair.

I went through the exact same thing a while ago. i even felt like i couldn't wear nice clothes because it looked "wrong'. I promised myself that i would give them a year, and if i still didn't like them, I would comb them out. just give it some time, after a month or so I loved them again, and now i wouldn't trade them for anything:]

I totally understand what you are saying. Before I stopped brushing, I had long thick hair that everyone though was beautiful, and the fact that it looks different just seems to upset everyone. People I have never met before seem to appreciate my dreads more than people I already knew. To the new people, it's just who I am. But to my friends and family, i'm this weird, dirty freak that needs to "get serious help" as I've been told. I get constant criticism and some days it hurts like hell...others, its just fuel to push forward and prove them wrong. I come from a conservative bunch of country people who have been living the same way as their parents and grandparents and so on and so forth. No matter what I do it's always weird because I dare to be different. They hate that and always will. So the way I see it, I could do some amazing things and it would never be good enough why bother myself trying to impress them? You can never win unless YOU take charge! Good luck!

oh, and you ARE beautiful! :)
