So I'm starting my 4th month of my dread journey and I couldn't be happier. I've never liked my hair, so much so that I've fried, dyed and cooked my hair to the point of no return. Why new growth springs forth I can't tell you because I know it dang well shouldn't. I've been dealing with health issues due to my poor dental health. (Long story) I'm working on bettering my health and in the process, have noticed something. My hair is like my sheild, armor and sword. It gives me strength and courage. I've never felt so good about myself. Confidant even. It may seem silly or sound outrageous to some but it's true. I believe that a positive outlook and self confidence is the key to opening many doors. Not to mention to heal inner wounds. I couldn't be happier. progress pics below.
