From the Knotty Boy Website (Emphasis mine):
"Those who have dreadlocks that need some good lovin', this service provides grooming, tightening, frizz-management, and general freshening up with our fabulous Knotty Boy dreadlock products. Got dreads that are broken, too thick or thin, bumpy, or loopy? Major dread repair is our specialty"
So apparently not only are they loading people's hair with wax that inhibits the dreading process, but when people's hair manages to fix itself and begin to dread naturally and healthfully, they can "Repair" this???
The funny thing is, just above this statement is a picture of a guy who looks like he might be close to losing a lock from thinness at the root...and he's just had their maitenence done!
Im very much considering shaving them off
I've had such bad luck this year, it just seems that one bad thing keeps hapening after another, im an optimist normally but its getting harder and harder to bounce back.
i was sat a bit hysterical before and was holding my head in my hands and my dreads just seem really grotesque and horrible to me, i really wanted to just rip them right off my head.
whats worse is that owing to the fact i have a history of bipolar and SI problems my mum has told me im absolutely not allowed to cut them off (shes even hidden the fucking sharp things in the house) and thats just made me feel like im a little girl who doesnt even have control over her own hair.
frankly i just want to rip them out... i know i'd probably really regret it...
so im thinking of doing something drastic but umm not shaving. i dont know what though... i already have a dread hawk which im attempting to grow out anyone have any ideas of something i can do to it?
im gonna wait a few days before i do anything at all just so i can calm down abit.
but i'd love some ideas please
I'd just like to give a big thankyou to every last active person in this community, you really are all amazing and I love how your willing to be so helpful to people you dont know.
As for my hair Im very thankful I didnt do anything drastic. For the next few days I think im gonna do as Lish said and just keep em covered then set aside a day to decide what i want to do with them and give them a really thorough cleaning Im also considering dying them a nice bright colour again...
As for right now Im just trying to put things in perspective take a few days off college to sort my life out and try do some productive things :)
