It's been 3,5 months now, and the one "problem" I have is that I can't stop playing with my hair. My hands and fingers find their way to my dreads without me noticing. I think I'm developing a tennis elbow from bending my arm to much...(Or maybe I should call it a dread elbow but that just sounds wrong.)
I've been wondering how this affects my dreads. Would they be moredreaded without my tender, loving touch? Would I have less loose hairs? Would the dreads be prettier? You know what, I decided that I don't care. I love my loose hair and if it takes me a little longer to get mature dreads, that's ok. I want to be able to feel the progress.
I don't look at my dreads a whole lot butevery time I do I'm so surprised that they're not more visible. When I touch my hair I feel the dreads much more than all the loose hair, when I use my eyes all I see is the loose hair, not the dreads. So touching beats looking, at least at the stage I'm at right now.
I love finding a new loop with my fingers or a dread that all of a sudden feels thicker and more mature. I love the volume and the "fluffy" feeling when I squeeze my dreads and I really enjoy playing with the beads that decorate them. I just can't get enough.
MaybeI have developed into a dreadaholic???!!!
