I used to frequent here under another alias. That was over a year ago, during my researching phase before I started my journey, and shortly after. It's been approximately 15 months since I have brushed or combed my hair, and I've got 5 locks started, all different sizes, shapes, and levels of maturity. I wash twice a week with Dr Bronners or baking soda, depending on how my hair and scalp feel. It's been quite the adventure so far, and I've learned a lot about locks, myself, and those around me just by making the decision to not brush my hair. I've met some amazing people in the dreadlock community, for lack of a better term, and I know I will continue to meet more. My attitude towards my progress varies. I always love my hair, but I do find myself still wishing my hair had locked already from time to time, or that my locks were mature and long. But then I realize I would have missed a part of the process that is necessary to my well being and health. I am much more patient now than I was, but I still have a long way to go, it sometimes feels. I am doing my best to enjoy every day, and every step of the process, as it's totally unique and life transforming for those who invest the energy. I hope everyone has an amazing day / night. Stay knotty.
