Amor y paz, friends!
Thank you for the suggestion but I’m content for now. Obviously, I would love to have my hair back instantly but I know it will return to its former glory over the next couple years!
I have seen your pictures! Your hair is awesome. I know my hair is pretty short now but I'm looking forward to getting it back soon. I think I'm way too lazy to take daily pictures but I could see myself tracking it weekly because I'm already tracking nutrition and fitness each week. Either way, I'll be hanging around here for sure.
Yeah, I saw the article recently and it confirmed much of what I already supposed. Coincidentally, I have actually taken a Nazirite vow, based on the examples you have given, already. It seems like we are very much on the same page concerning my religious rights. I look forward to putting my workplace to the test, haha.
No offense taken about Christian hypocrisy. I think everyone is hypocritical from time to time, so I don't take it personally.
My name is Mica and I just started my second dread journey on Monday. My first journey, several years ago, lasted about a year and started with backcombing and wax. I found this site shortly after the startup damage had been done and I attempted to get the wax out. Something like two years later, when I cut my hair (huge mistake, haha), I found some buildup inside my dreads after all.
This time I intend to go all natural. I have a few newbie concerns, despite having experienced much of this journey before, but I know that everything will work out with time. My main concern is pursuing my professional career (I teach at a Christian elementary school) while my hair is looking crazy.
I see the site still has some people hanging out and that makes me really happy. I look forward to celebrating some progress with you all, hopefully soon!
