It's been a month...

It's been a month since I last brushed my hair. Some days after deciding that I'm going to try to 'get' natural dreads, I posted (http://community.livejournal.com/get_up_dread_up/3109203.html) on gudu and I'm still thankful for the really nice replies. Since I couldn't get much information about natural dreading when I was deciding whether I want to do it or not, I thought that posting here every months with some recent photos would be a good idea.

First of all, the pictures might help other people who are thinking about dreading their hair naturally. Second, if I manage to post every month for a year or a year and a half, you can show it as a proof the next time you want to convince someone that all hair will dread eventually if you stop brushing it.

I've been washing it every five days or so with very little herb shampoo and I think it works quite well. Excuse the greasy look on the photos; yesterday I went out and first, it rained really hard and then I went in this really smokey club and I haven't washed my hair since then.

Even though my hair only looks messy, I have never felt so good about it. It's the first time my hair actually expresses my views - I've decided to stop going against the nature and to let my hair do whatever it wants. Therefore, if it wants to look messy for a while, I'm absolutely fine with it :)

Comments are very much appreciated!
Regards from Slovenia, Ajda.
