Hello hello, you may remember me from this post
a couple weeks ago and I got a few requests for updates, so here it goes....
-I haven't touched felting needles since I last posted
-I've consistently been loosing dreads (a total of about 5-7 now.)
-I have no dreads on the nap of my neck now
-About 50% of the dreads, at the root, are extremely thin (held on by what looks like only a few hairs)
-I've been wearing them either down, with a bandana/headband or hidden in a tam (to not try to strain the roots)
-Spraying with salt water, etc, about once a day
-Washing them once a week
-Had vivid dreams of me with long hair/short hair every night
I'm keeping my head up though, I'm starting to think it's simply stress. I have school 5 days of the week until 3, work every day except Thursday at 2 jobs, by 18th birthday is monday, my on/off (mostly on) boyfriend of 3 years is moving to Michigan (i live in WI) the day before my birthday, and I haven't been doing so hot in school/working on college aps.
So a little stressed haha.
I want to keep my babies, 99% of me is saying, "Hey, keep them, in the end they'll be long and strong and beautiful and you won't remember any of that early crap." I completely believe i would look ugly with short hair and if i ever attempted to comb them out i think i would have a lot of bald spots/they would simply snap off. I'll keep my head up, I swear.
My main questions are;
1.) Should i attempt root rubbing now to strengthen the roots... I've never done it and am hesitant to start ANYTHING
2.) If (stupid "if" questions) you were in my situation what would you do ?
