So it's been almost 8 months at this point since I decided to let my hair go. The few TnR ones I made fell out (except for one) and the rest of my hair has been dreading naturally. Yesterday was the first time I seriously considered brushing out my hair. It was just a wild, ridiculously crazy rats nest. I felt like a cave woman, but not in a good way. I have to tie my hair back at work which is horribly frustrating when my hair does NOT want to cooperate and honestly it doesn't look any less crazy tied back. Haha.
The customers at my job are very...blunt and...crude/rude at times. I constantly have people staring at my head like they're disgusted or making comments like "bad hair day?". I just try to ignore it/play it off, but it does become tiring/irritating at times. Also...trying to keep these bad boys from turning into one giant lock is hard work! I honestly feel like I have to separate multiple times every day to keep everything from tangling into one mass. Already some of the sections are pretty big from dreadlings merging together. I can't do anything about it at this point unless I just want to completely brush/cut them out. I figure I'll try to separate them the best that I can and hope for the best. :[
Anyway, so yesterday I decided that I was going to brush my little dreadlings out. Then I looked in the mirror and pulled at them and played with them. It made me sad to think of actually going through with it after all of this time. I knew that I'd be depressed if I actually did it. SO, I'm going to keep on keeping on. Just have to keep telling myself that it's worth it.
At first I was all like "I'm going to keep a photo diary of my progress, yeah!" Then I was like "wow, I'm really too lazy to do all of that". Haha. I'm going to try to get some photos posted soon though. It'll be cool to be able to look back and see how much progress has been made.
Anywho. Enough rambling. For now, here is one from a little less than two months in. Sorry for the weird lighting/quality/size. I had to brighten it to actually see my hair and it was taken with a crappy tablet camera. :p
