whats happening fellow dreadies, so its been almost a month since i stopped combing my hair n almost 2 months since i got out the Marines letting my hair grow from bald (well close to it lol)..anyway so ive got my tea tree shampoo n jus been checking out how things been goin, ive noticed very slight knotting but mainly since my hair is still short its just been curling in some spots, and just fuzzin in others....my main thing ive wondered is the fact that i wear a baseball type hat most of the day at work, i can tell my hair has grown a bit but doesnt really look like it cuz the hat keeps it in this kinda smashed down kinda look lol, will this slow dreading down?

First of all hello n bless to all fellow dreadies! Soooo...Today i had my first experience on how ppl tell you what yuh what u can n cant do, how u shud and shudnt do things...went to a salon in walmart, on a positive note found me some tea tree shampoo ( wich i didnt buy yet waiting on pay day lol) but meanwhile i was there had a lady who works there said the following comments..1) (i dont have nappy but rather curly/wavy hair) you have such nice hair why would you do such a thing? ( in regards to dreadin it)2) (after i told her i was going the natural route n wanted to let my hair jus go) you need to at least come in so i can section and twist ur hair.3) (i said as time goes on i'll seperate my hair as i feel n that ive stopped combing my short hair) money greed tief lady says, well you should wait till it grows out more before you stop combing or else its going to be too hard to manage and will turn out looking horrible, thats the look for cheap lazy people who dont have money to go get their dreads professionally done....Now in my opinion n im sure others agree, theres nothing wrong with people who choose to get their hair done n look neat n proper..thats what my mom did and her dreads look beautiful ive always admired them....BUT!....thats not my choice n i thought to myself WTF make ppl think they have a right to tell YOU what YOU want for YOUR hair and lifestyle.....BLOOODCLOTT PPL DEM!
