Because every journey starts with a single step...
Figured I would document and share my experience (as best as I possibly can) with the community. After a long time deciding if dreads were right, it begins.
Likely there will be some highs and lows in this journey, I will do my best to share and document it all.
And without further to do:
So before I begin, I will share the one, this guy was given to me, back combing was involved. It has now been with me just short of a month.
Okay so perhaps 5 days into the process is a little soon to start sharing? Hope not. Anyhow my biggest hair complaint growing up has been how fine and bland my hair has always seemed. It is naturally oily, and often appears limp.
Though it is not far into the process the within the 5 days I have used baking soda to wash the once. I have read in the past about the method to clean hair and always been curious, I must say I wish I had tried it sooner (when I was not dreading) Honestly I was pleased with the state it left my hair in. With some upcoming travels this method is going to make my life a lot easier!
That said, 5 days into it. My hair has more waves to it than it would if I were to brush it. (A plus) But I find at the back it has this cow lick thing going on (For sure not to happy on this one)
Other considerations. I am trying to break habit of putting my hair back into an elastic. Since starting I have left it down as much as possible, but have had it up for a few of my work shifts which last about 10 hours.
More later, and I will see that the photos are improved quality and not taken via the built in camera on this computer.
1 Month Mark
