My name is Mica and I just started my second dread journey on Monday. My first journey, several years ago, lasted about a year and started with backcombing and wax. I found this site shortly after the startup damage had been done and I attempted to get the wax out. Something like two years later, when I cut my hair (huge mistake, haha), I found some buildup inside my dreads after all.
This time I intend to go all natural. I have a few newbie concerns, despite having experienced much of this journey before, but I know that everything will work out with time. My main concern is pursuing my professional career (I teach at a Christian elementary school) while my hair is looking crazy.
I see the site still has some people hanging out and that makes me really happy. I look forward to celebrating some progress with you all, hopefully soon!
