Last month (about) I decided I wanted dreads again. My sister suggested I wait till after Christmas so my mom won't feel her holiday pictures are ruined. I had agreed but I've been obsessing about dreads since. I talked to my mom today and told her I was thinking of doing them tonight. She told me that they're disgusting (rolls eyes) but it's my hair and I should do what I want. I decided not to wait till after Christmas.
Dreads are something I love. I find them to be very beautiful. Though every time I put them in I wind up taking them out for one reason or another. I've reflected on the reasons I've taken them out in the past and have found ways to sooth those concerns (the big one being dandruff).
I just washed my hair with some non-residue shampoo to get rid of any residue that's in my hair from the shampoo I usually use. After it dries (probably after the kids go to bed) I'm going to work on my dreads.
YAY! I'll post pics as soon as I have batteries for my camera.
