I'm kind of jealous because I started my dread journey before my twin brother, but he went and got his dreads done by crochet professionally. I'm a little jealous to see his nice evenly dreads starting to loop and show obviously progress as opposed to mine, but hopefully knowing that mine are natural and more than likely healthier will be that much more rewarding.
Yeah i think that is hard for you, but i bet this will change! Your dreads will take longer to form, but you will look very unique! I bet your brother might become jealous about your natural dreads one day because his look like everybody elses! I notice that since the day my hair looks like "dreaded" and not only messy. A lot of people with dreads (mostly crotcheted ones) turn around their head after passing me, and i think they notice that mine look different than most people's dreads over here. That is very interesting!
