The best part: Starting. I loved the idea that I would never have to pick up a brush again.

The most eye opening: The day I forgot when I started. Granted, for me this was about 3 days in. But you get the idea. I believe that you should never pay attention to how old they are. What does that do other than remind you that yours aren't as far along as someone else. And that means nothing. When I was 8 months in, I looked like I was 3 days in. Other who are 4 months in, look like that are 2 years in. So why pay attention to how old they are?

Also, when you see that you don't have mature locks yet, you tend to not think of yourself as having locks. You see yourself as will-be-having-locks-soon. The minute you stop brushing, you are growing locks. They may not be tight and matted. But their babies. You don't say a baby isn't a human until they grow up. So you shouldn't say your messy hair aren't locks until the mature either

That's a good way to look at it.

I feel so much more myself when I have dreads growing .Also it helps show you who is shallow enough to give that much of a car about how you wear your hair .

The best part for me is everything I've learned and everything I will learn. Not jut about hair or oil but about myself as well

I'm really starting to feel like myself. I feel so much more comfortable with my hair. I love every part of this journey. even the mistakes.

i only like to keep track of the time for documentation purposes, so people can see the journey & progress, but it would be great to forget. i do keep forgetting what month i'm on & then i see my timeline or photos that say it & i'm like oh yeah, that's where i'm at!

& beautiful bit about the baby locks, i needed that reminder <3

My favorite part so far is the opportunity my hair has given me to spend quality time with my boyfriend. He helps me separate and soon he'll be helping me wrap and decorate :)
