I'm new on here. I'm really surprised I haven't signed up for this site before!
So some background on me; I have had dreads twice before. The first time they lasted a year, then I "had to" brush them out for a job that didn't last. The 2nd time I had to brush them out because of school... I am so mad.
After I brushed them out the 2nd time I bleached my hair & killed it all. So I recently cut all my hair off so I can grow it back healthy & my natural color so I can get my beloved dreadlocks back (I'm never getting rid of them again!). Anyone who knows me knows that dreadlocks are ME... I'm just not myself without them. Dreads to me are a symbol of my lifestyle & spirituality... I can't wait for my hair to grow back. My hair is about ear length right now, I'm dreading it when it gets about chest length, or 2 months postpartum. I don't know how fast my hair will grow during pregnancy... hopefully fast! lol
One thing I was wondering, the only thing I "dislike" about dreads is that they smell like nothing. When I get them back I want to try essential oils. Do you put some on your hands & then palm roll them or put it in like a salt spray & spray them on your hair?
