almost brushed it all out :(
my husband and i were going out on sunday to celebrate valentines day and i just about had a melt down. we rarely go out because of our busy schedules so this was pretty special. i had a nice outfit, a little bit of makeup and a mop on my head. i look like a homeless person(no offense to anyone who's homeless). i definitely look like i don't own a brush but i don't look like i'm dreading my hair either. i have about 7 sections that i backcombed last month that are going crazy and the rest is just messy hair. i seriously considered combing it all out that night.
it'll be 5 months next week and i'm feeling so defeated. my hair does not like to knot. i have some separating of sections and a little knotting at the tips but it's not progressing from there. it's been like that for months. i tried putting beads in but they all just fall out everywhere. i know i need to be patient but i see all these people on here that are around the same time frame as me and they have such wonderful progress. am i going to be one of the ones that has to wait 2 or 3 years for dreadlocks?
i don't mean to make this a pity party. i just want to know that someday i will get to leave the house without a hat or scarf on and feel proud of my hair. right now that is not an option:(
