I really want dreads again (would be my third set). But I still live in the Pacific Northwest, so I would hate for them to get moldy again... I really like that I can just jump into the shower, now, and not have to fret over making sure either my hair stays dry or that it's thoroughly washed... then afterward to make sure it gets dry all the way... I don't have to worry about trying to wrangle with pulling scalp as they grow... I don't have to fret over whether or not they look OK.... *SIGH!!!*
But at the same time it's like, I miss watching them change... I miss the awkward phases ending and being sublimely surprised how they shifted. I miss the stunning haphazard artwork that stayed with me always. I miss the weight on my head.
If I do decide to get them again, I'm not looking forward to 4+ months of looking like a crazed banshee and having everyone asking me what happened to my hair! hahahaha. Also, I kind of want to know what it would be like to have long straight hair for once since my childhood... Just sayin'! You guys will definitely be the first to know when/if I get dreads again though!!!

Just so this isn't just me whining on and on about dreads...
