So here's my 3rd journey so far, about a month in and it's going well!
So I swore I'd not dread my hair again because taking them out took 4 months of combing for hours a day I lost 30lbs and a lot of hair, that being said, I kept my length and still hate brushing my hair. .
I miss my hairs more than I can accurately put into words. This is not a fad, not when you've dedicated so much time into allowing them to just be.
So since I truly dreaded my 2nd set I've stopped wearing makeup all together. Even after my dreads I still prefer myself natural. I mention this since I read something by another user noting similar experiences and this ever growing comfort with myself. As I re-dread I feel this resilience rebuilding, the very things I felt leaving as I removed my locs of hairs.
This is a spiritual process I'm I've been missing in my life, thanks for being a part of it with me!
