Going through that was totally the wrong way to approach things. However, she still maintains common misconceptions of dreads being dirty, "for black people," etc., and that really gets under my skin. She promised that if I dreaded my hair while living under her roof she would shave it off. However, I would rather take time to grow my hair and get it stronger and know that it wasn't "just a phase" or just "rebellion." But I think the fact that I have been planning to dread my hair for nearly five years, is enough to prove those things wrong alone.
Long, boring story short, I just wanted to say hello and I hope to show you my dreads someday soon!
Thank you so much for teaching me so much already!! <3
