so i was on my way to buy some film the other day, and i stopped by the beauty store next to CVS first to get some of my favorite delicious hemp lotion! i saw that they where selling a three-in-one dye brush with a comb and needle for 70 cents so i decided to get one, since im gonna be dreading three heads this month. as i was paying for the brush, the beautician asks me "oh do you know how to fix weaves?" and i said "oh no, i use it to... :(hesitant pause, because i was afraid she would give me dirty looks/ask me stupid questions i wasnt in the mood to deal with): fix and make dreads" and she goes "wow thats so interesting! how do you do it?" and since she seemed to be nice about it, i showed her my bottom dreads and did a little explanation on how i'd use the hook needle for loose hairs and maintenance, etc. and she called over all the other ladies working at the store to see. of course, they all had comments like "wow i had no idea dreads needed maintenance to look so nice" "i always thought you had to just have dirty hair" and then i had to give a whole explanation on the stereotypes of dreads, but how they're actually time-consuming, etc. and pretty much ended up giving a lecture to the whole beauty store on dreadlocks. they where all really polite and interested, and it made me happy cause i usually get dirty looks and comments from any beautician on my dreads, so it was pretty pleasant :)
hope everyone is enjoying their sunday!
