Ok, I hope this is suitable, and I hope I can get some help from this. :/

You may have all seen me around, posting comments here and there to all of your BEAAAAAAAAUTIFUL posts, but I've never actually made a post here. [Longtime Lurker. ^^;; ]

See, I don't actually have dreads yet, but I'm a -huge- dreadlock enthusiast; and ever growing within the last year or so.

The thing is, I haven't been able to have dreads yet, because I'm missing a large portion of hair on the back of my head due to stress. [Apparently it was alopecia.] So I've been struggling with it actually
growing back - which it is, but EXTREMELY slowly.

And I was wondering, because I remember a few posts having to do with some of you losing hair/dreads and having to cope with it... does anyone have any ideas of what I could do? Because I want dreads so very, very badly, I've just been worried that the whole world will see this gigantic bald spot with my dreadies, and that would be just terrible. :( Is there any way that I could hide it? Or some other form that wouldn't effect and pull the hair that is re-growing?

I hope this all made sense. :(

ps, you're all so beautiful and inspiring and i love you all so much!!!

An attempted closer look. It's pinned back, so obviously it doesnt ALWAYS look that open.

You can see where the 'normal' part line is, going all the way down. So assume and picture it RIGHT in the middle of the back of my head. Pain in the ass it is.

Hmm. I hope those are good enough...And I apologize for my hair looking that horrible :/
