Awe thanks my phone was off for two months so hoping to be more active again missed y'all! At the dentist rn. Lol dang anxiety.
So I'm starting my 4th month of my dread journey and I couldn't be happier. I've never liked my hair, so much so that I've fried, dyed and cooked my hair to the point of no return. Why new growth springs forth I can't tell you because I know it dang well shouldn't. I've been dealing with health issues due to my poor dental health. (Long story) I'm working on bettering my health and in the process, have noticed something. My hair is like my sheild, armor and sword. It gives me strength and courage. I've never felt so good about myself. Confidant even. It may seem silly or sound outrageous to some but it's true. I believe that a positive outlook and self confidence is the key to opening many doors. Not to mention to heal inner wounds. I couldn't be happier. progress pics below.
Hey! I'm having more issues now! Ugh now when I separate I'm loosing volume at the root. The hairs are tearing and its gotten thin at the roots and they are not doing anything but matting flat. Should I maybe do a gentle twist and backcomb a little to help them and keep them from being so nuts? Help! What can I do? Everything I read and everywhere I turn the answer is brush them out! Noooo!!! Not my babies! Any and all advice welcome! Please help fam! The one pic shows how they are normally, flat and matted at the root, not locking just congoing. The other pic I gently twisted a loc to show how thin it has gotten. It was thicker than the loc itself. (Compare photos to really see the hair loss) I keep hearing, desperate and be patient. I know! Lol I'm only asking because its becoming worse and i mnow its not right. Please help me tall!
