Hair left to its own devices will dread. First known dreads were on monks in Asian. Egyptians wore dreads. Vikings wore dreads.
My sister has told me the same... so when a person with kinky hair straightens it, what is that? - There’s a history to African hair styles stemming from old ways... Respect is a two way street. Dignity and self love go further and are not dependent on anyone but ourselves.
ITS HAIR AND HAIR HOLDS ENERGY. HAIR IS AN EXTENSION OF OUR NERVOUS SYSTEM AND BY KEEPING IT WE CAN HOLD GREATER VIBRATIONS AND EXPAND.
Love without discrimination is the only answer ✌️❤️
Well I’d like to say Hi, and welcome you on your journey, however you’ve chosen to start. I did mess with a few of my freeform locks a few years ago and quickly regretted it. Let me say, dreads should not hurt, minus the separating part and even that isn’t anything to snuff at after the first few months; for me anyways. The worst of separating was nothing compared to the month or so of constant pulling at my scalp (and SORES!) from pulling hairs through and creating tension at my escaló. I brushed out my rip and twist ones after a month because I could not handle the pain and pulling... All that said. In a few months/years-ish, if you do nothing else but take extensions out and separate you’ll love how your head feels! I use Vicki’s dreadlock shampoo and LOVE it!! I thought tea tree would be my stuff but it turns out I LOVE activated charcoal, patchouli, and dragons blood- smells AMAZING, I haven’t tried it yet ( one of the kids hid it from me- BUT I found it. Lol). Welcome. Send pictures !
