Well, it`s been a lively fourth month with messy hair beyond my wildest expectations, a real up and down month. Sometimes I felt so gorgeous I was afraid to go on the street in case I got accosted, and at other times I just wanted to dig a hole and bury myself. At least no-one says any more, you have such lovely hair, why don`t you do something with it. People do sometimes ask me if I`ll have to shave my head when I "don`t like my hair any more"; I get the impression they`d prefer it if I DID shave my head, then they`d find it less embarrassing.
I feel my hair is settling down a bit. There are no new loops, and the old ones are flattening out a lot. The right side is catching up with the left side and I have loads of new growth. The loose hairs seem to be coating the dread of their choice and - joy of joys - some of the soft loose hair at the back of my neck is forming freeform dreads (I´d have chosen the freeform method if I´d been younger, so I`m very happy to have just a few. They are totally different to the twist and rip ones). The rest of the loose hair is forming ringlets which look very pretty among the fuzz, frizz, whorls, whirls, loops, bumps, zigzags and other weird stuff covering my scalp (when I can find them).
Well, that`s the score. Month 5 starts tomorrow. I can`t wait!
