So, I've been thinking about lishd
's recent comment on no matter what method of 'dreading up' you use, in time they will produce the same results. The backcomb method will eventually grow dreads from the roots, and the backcombed, matted hair will grow out with trimming, or be at the bottom of a long dread. So lets quit the on-going pointless debat.. eh?!
Also, I was thinking about how many 'maintaining' posts there has been, asking whether to sew, crochet etc to 'tie in the loose ends', 'straighten out lumpy, loopy dreads' and deal with the 'fuzzy tips'. For me, I just let my dreads be. I love them, I am glad I have them, but it is not a big deal if they look scruffy, because i know in time, they will look exactly the same as any other method used on my hair, that they will turn out the same as if i had
spent hours palm-rolling, crocheting, sewing. Sure, i'm not saying anything to dispte the fact that my dreads will probably take longer for the roots to start growing as dreads...but that's fine for me.
The point is, I think too many people are starting to care about the appearance of their dreads...which is actually up to them..but ... I don't know. maybe this is a pointless post...
Just some thoughts. Though I am so happy with my lions mane.
