First off I’d like to say hi! I’ve been a member of this community over a year admiring all of you beautiful, beautiful, people and dreadlocks. I have wanted dreadlocks since I was 16 or so (I’m 20 now). While traveling in
I told myself after that if I were to ever dread my hair again that I should do it when my hair was down to my ass. My reason being is that dreads are about patience, so is growing your hair out. I figure if I don't have the patience to grow my hair down to my ass then I won't have the patience to ever dreadlock my hair. My hair is more than half way there (pictures below) and of course, I am still looking forward to the day where I give up my comb, once again. It really frustrates me when I spend the ten minutes to shampoo and condition my hair and then have my hair super knotty afterwards. My hair WANTS to dread BADLY. But I’m like, no, not yet!
A worry of mine is that my hair will interfere with my school/career of a nurse. I eventually want to become a midwife but for now I’m in this tight nursing program and I’m sure I’d be looked down on if I were to have dreadlocks as a nursing student, in and out of the hospital.
That said, (I could go on but I’m going to stop myself) you are all very beautiful people. I love the pictures and dreadlock timelines. You guys are awesome!~

keep on growing that hair!!!
