I've set a date!

I've sort of set a rough date for when to *finally* dread my hair! After Marching Band season (I play tuba in a competitive marching band and tubas don't wear chakos, or the bucket hats, so my hair would have to be in like a gelled bun thingg and also in this time my hair will grow to a more reasonable length) I intend on finally getting the hair I've wanted since I saw dreadlocks on young girl for the first time in seventh grade. All in all I'm super super super glad that I found this community, at first I thought wax was like the super "in" thing to do but now, wow, the idea of using wax is a bit preposterous. So thanks to all! I know like I've got time til the big moment but I guess now that something is sort of set in stone for me, I figured I'd share :)

On a side note, I've noticed tons of people here have their noses pierced. I've had mine pierced for about...three months and I juuuust managed to get rid of a granuloma and today I accidentally ripped it a bit with a towel after a shower. Has this happened to any of you? If so, did it heal quickly? Because mine JUST healed and now Im frustrated haha

Thanks in advance and I love the dreads I've seen on this community, very beautiful :)
