need your thoughts

update:im not cutting them :) thank you all for your wonderful word!

i am giving alot of thought to cutting my locks off .
im torn about it . they are looking great to me , are getting long , and i should be super content with them .. but i need/want a change and just keep thinking about cutting them .
one thing stopping me from just doing it is having ugly chopped of hair !
that "transition hair" .
also my weight is another thing . having a fat face and short hair -hrm?

but beyond the physical dislikes of cutting them , i also have some attachment to them . these are the first locks i grew ( i have had them 3 times ) that it wasn't about pride or style. it was just that i feel at home with locks .
i hate to cut them in their prime of growth , just as they are taking on shape,length, and all that good stuff..
but (big butt-lol)
i feel like i need a change , i don't want to keep them for the wrong reasons or cut them for the wrong reasons ..
all in all , it is just hair but it does bare some importance ..

so here are some photo's of "transition hair i've had:

ok, hoping i dont get shit on posting in here like i did with my last post, but i have a question

for shits and giggles i went to the knottboy.com website just to see what they recommended and i read some whare on thare not to use castile soap to wash
i am using dr. bronners which is castile soap to wash
so now i am confused, just wondered if someone could clear that up for me, k thanks


howdy, i am new here and new to dreads.
on sunday my friend and i decided that i should have dreads, so we beatup an egg and made a bunch of knots. so now i have around 5 real dreads and im pretty happy with them, but i keep going back and forth on whether or not to stay with only half of my head dreaded, or all of the head. i dont know how to work my scanner so i cant really post pics, but when i can, i will.

question- its okay that i wash my hair right? it wont mess up my dreads too too much, will it?

as we speak, i am currently messing with my lil dreads with my lil comb.

another question-what can i put in my hair to make my dreads more "solid"? that is all.
