Just wanted to say Thanks
My partner has been very off and on about my dread journey. At first he wasn't very supportive, because I think his only experience of dreads were those made with wax and not cleaned property. Well, after a week or so, he said, "I love you, and your hair is a part of you, so I love your hair." How wonderfully supportive! But last night he was looking at my hair and said, "You're going to have to do something about this." He waved his hands around my head in a little exasperated gesture... "It's just crazy all over!"I thought about all I had learned here, all of the experiences you have shared, and how I've consciously made the decision to allow my hair to go its own way, just giving it a little head start with some TnR. I laughed. I laughed and laughed, because I'm just thrilled with my hair and the decisions I've made with it. I told him, "Well, I'm not putting wax in it," and when he made a palm rolling gesture, so I responded that wouldn't do anything to help. "It's just going to be crazy all over for the next year or so, and I like it that way," I finished.So I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who shared their knowledge and personal experiences with me. A younger me maybe would have been more self conscious after hearing my partner's words, I may have second-guessed myself. But thanks to your support and wisdom, I know I'm doing the right thing, and I'm enjoying it immensely!
