Why do people try to mis inform!
Yesterday i was at a family party where a women happened to be who has dreads. they were pretty long and completely straight, no bumps or loops or even almost no lose hair. Later on the day of course the hair became the subject of a conversation between some guests. So I heard some people ask her if that was hard to maintain and stuff like that, i heard her say yes and it costs a lot, so i looked at her with a face like uh?? She probably noticed that and started talking to me asking where i have let me dreads put in, so i told her and she happens to have let her dreads done by the same person. But for my feelings that person had mis informed me, she recommended wax, even putted a huge amount in them and i also told her i wasn't happy about the wax.
She started telling me what i should doe with my dreads and trying to make me scared. Like i HAVE to use wax and that i definitely should let them maintained by the woman who putted them in (i had a small feeling they were good friends ore something), that my small ones were to thin who came in by natural dreading and that they will break off, that if i don't maintain the roots i would go bald. Huh?? I didn't really said much back because i'm pretty stubborn and already made up my mind what i wanted to do with my dreads.
After telling me what to do she turned back to the other people who were still asking things about her dreads so i had the chance to look good at her dreads, she said she had them for like 6 years but they weren't even felted! they had this crochet structure and after the remark of someone who wanted to feel on them that they felt like dog hair (which is pretty hard and stiff) i just knew her dreads were full with wax and after looking even better i could see some wax in them (dirty spots) and even little holes in them??! From the crochet hook maybe? So from a distance they looked spotless and neat but that was not what i wanted on my head, i prefer to have more natural like dreads that are felted and not sticked together hair with lots of wax in them that even after 6 years have this manufactured look!
