combing out year and a half old natural locks
))hugs(( i love you guys.
it's definitely not over a guy! my boyfriend loves my hair and will probably be sad to hear that i want to change it. i talk about missing my hair all the time, and i feel like it's holding me back.
i'm in a really tough spot right now... i quit my last job in march, like an idiot, they were totally fine with my crazy hair. but i'm facing being homeless if i can't find a job really, really soon, and it's so tough when all people see is my hair instead of ME. no matter how good i look on paper, i'm plagued by judgmental people's opinions of me based on my appearance.
i do love my dreads, so very much. and you're right, SE, i probably will feel a huge sense of loss if i do decide to go through with it.
a few months ago i had a really intense trip on LSD and almost combed them out then, but i decided not to. ever since then it's been in the back of my head, and i think it's time to go for it.
gosh i'm almost in tears.
i know i can always do it again if i feel the time is right, but i just don't think dreads are right for me at this point in my life.
