awesome, awesome timeline! You're beautiful and your dreads are beautiful! I wouldn't fret about having a dress code for dreads. I am seen with my tie-dyed dresses to my extremely heavy metal band tees and ripped jeans. For the people who hate on you, I find people hate for 3 reasons. 1 they want to be you, 2 they hate themselves, and 3 they find you as a threat. I'm looking forward to see more pics of your dreads maturing.

I love your honesty! I feel insecure at times with mine and I'm only at the beginnig. Even in the dreadlock world people can be judgmental. I don't think it matters what method or maintenence routines you choose as long as you make informed decisions and they work for you. Thats what I've concluded anyway.. It's a very personal experience and none of us are the same =)

Awh, so close to home. I dyed and straightened my hair for eight years! Saw my natural hair color for the first time since about two months into my dread journey. It's ironic -- I can easily say that I'm happier with the state of my hair now than I EVER was during those eight years. Oh man, just thinking about how much money and time I spent on it.../facepalm.

I COMPLETELY understand.So much time wasted too! Its great to have natural hair. Although, dying it occasionallyis sortafun too.

Absolutely love this blog! You're a good writer for real. Very interesting take on the process and sort of prepares the reader to expect their own emotional journey through this process. I think you are just plain beautiful, even in the top before picture with your hair just straight on clown nuts. The lessons you shared today are very valuable and it excited me, not about having dreads, but about what it will be like to deal with the wait and uncertainty of the process. It seems to me everyone has an ego battle and breakdown and sort of rebirth with the natural evolution of dreads. Rock the fuck on. I'm gonna write down your lessons and reference them any time I'm feeling negative about the way I look! Thank you!

Writing down the lessons is a way ofremembering, and noticing, the changes. If I hadn't made this blog, I would not even realize how much my life has been affected! Thank you, and rock on yourself!
