So about two months ago I started dreads.
Things just went bad, from about day 1. So out came the conditioner and a sturdy brush and out went the dreads. I gave my scalp a bit of rest and started again on Friday.
I hit the internet again, read more, and tried a slightly different approach and after 3 days and a world of hurt (my wrists are still aching, bah) I have new dreads. Already more...um...well, dreaded than my previous attempt even after about 3 weeks into them that first time...heck, they got *worse* as time progressed rather than better. This pic is from last night, right after finishing them all (123 of them, best I can count...) and spraying them with a bit of salt water.
With my first attempt, first day of waking up after finishing them, I had about...oh, 25 of them that had just completely come undreaded overnight. Mostly around the nape of my neck, over my ears, and my bangs.
This morning? No change at all from last night.
Awww yeah, I'm on it now.
