middle-aged newbie dreadhead
Heather you have such a serene and peaceful look in your eyes'] beautiful!
i'm in my 40's and i think this time in our lives is perfect for dreads. we aren't so worried about what others think of us anymore i say invest in some pretty scarves and headbands. it looks a bit more presentable to society whennecessaryand keeps the craziness out of your eyes. i've recently started pulling my hair back in a loose pony tail sometimes too. i normally only wear my hair up when i go out. make sure you give your hair equal time to hang freely. movement = knots.
i was washing every other day when i started but i think that was undoing progress on my soft hair. i've gradually reduced my washings to twice a week now. its really helped my hair. everyone is different so you have to find what works best for you.
