recently i've been really considering dreading my hair, but several factors are keeping me from doing it, and several factors make me want to do it. namely my hair tangles like its no ones business, i can brush my hair, and an hour later i have tangles. i also love the look of dreads, i dream of skinny ones, or big fatties, but, for now i cant go with my dream. reasoning in that i live in the conservative south in the burbs, i still live at home and my father would kill me, and back to the first point, i need a new job.
so, a month ago, i decided to start a secret experiment. and made a baby dread at the base of my hair line, to see how i liked it. :D i knew i wanted to see how exactly my hair would react to dreads before i ever made the plunge a few years from now, i wanted to know what would happen, and if i would actually like how it looked.
so far, i LOVE IT!
root, i didnt use a rubber band to hold the hair while i backcombed, but over the past month its come together on its own, and also with some help of palm rolling after showers.
i think its forming nicely. the thin spot is just from when i re did the bottom which was dreaded too thin and would take forever to mature, and i tried rip and twist, didnt like it, and went back to back combing. when it matures more i'd like to put a pretty bead there.
length compared to the rest of my hair. it also hides really nicely in my hair. this little baby is only six inches long!
i hope ya'll enjoyed. i'm very excited about this new mini adventure of mine, and i hope it works out well!
