I'm about 2 1/2 months into my dread journey, and while i love the freedom of the dreads and the fact that i NEVER know what will be happening on my head when i wake up in the mornings, i do have one little issue. On the right side of my head, towards my face, there are 4 locks that are congoing, and it's driving me batty! From the middle of my forehead to my right ear is one big dread - not cute or easy to pull back! I was at a Wise Women's conference this weekend and asked a sweet sister what she recommended (she has been on the same journey for 2 1/2 years and had absolutely stunning locks), she said when that happened in the beginning, she would just snip and rip in places to manipulate the locks. That's the conclusion i had come to as well, but wanted to see what you all suggested. Thanks so much!~mae~

I am on week three of my natural dread journey. Yesterday a beauty popped up right on top of my head, I am stoked! I have all these little baby dreads in the back of my head, so the one on top really surprised me. It's been so freeing to just let my hair do its thing and not worry with things looking out of place.
