I combed out my babies.
It took a total of 10 hours of work.
9 months was the longest commitment I have ever made to anything.
I combed them out with the intentions of starting them again when my hair is longer.
I felt like a sell out at first, but then I started to feel liberated.
I think I am meant to have dreads, but the timing wasn't right.
Well Hello everyone! I have a quick question for those of you in Nelson, BC
Is anyone in Nelson, BC!?? If so, hows about is anyone interested in doing maintenance? Does anyone know any person that does dread maintenance? Really anything.
These are my dreads that need some work.
Truth be told I've considered taking them out. I haven't been happy with them. But that's what's happened every time I've taken out my dreads. Always at around the 2 or 3 month mark (mine will be 3 months in a few days). I've been telling myself lately that if I just kept them in the first time then they would've looked awesome by now (they would be 3 years by now if I did that). That's why I haven't taken them out. The hope that one day they will look good.
I don't think I'll take them out. But I do want my sister to keep off my ass about them. I know that if I kept them down and worked on them then they'll be beautiful. I can felt them maybe. I just need to go and get a felting needle. I should palmroll them more (have only done it a handful of times). The most important thing is time though. They're still in the messy phase.
What do you all think?

or maybe that's me just being annoyed, then hopeful, then annoyed again.
