my hair is currently frustrating the hell out of me, but i feel this partly has to do with everything else going on in my life. I cant seem to get better; going from sinus infections moving into a respiratory infection and now i have a kidney infection all on top of my fibromyalgia. trying to take care of my parents who are basically disabled. I got an interview for a part time job tomorrow. hopefully i'll get it and that will relieve the stress of working full time on my body. im stressing over how to style my dreads so they dont look so messy, but theyve shrunk a bit so i cant find anything that looks really nice.
I feel like such a failure that i'm 20 years old and my body fails me to a point that I fear I'll never be able to take care of myself.

on the 18th some of my dreads will hit 6 months. Ill do a proper time line then.

I notice when ive done root ripping on the newest dreads on the top of my head theres a ton of fuzzy loose hairs now and i have to resist fucking with them cause i know its only going to make it worse down the line

the longest dread is one of the 6 month-ers

holy fucking shrinkage! some of them even have rounded tips.

i cant even get some of them into a pony tail now and its irritating.


I also noticed the wispy ends of my hair seem to be snapping off from probably blow drying. Also some dreads and the ends arent retaining colors.. im considering doing a henna placenta treatment but im not sure if that would be too detrimental to the newer dreadies.

sorry i spam you guys so much.

funny story, this guy i was sorta seeing who was all "lols i dont like you as much as you like me" kept trying to get me to put wax and tightening gel in my dreads. He wouldnt listen to me when i told him thats not good for them and he went all high and mighty "ive had dreads on and off for 5 years i know more than you do blahblahblah"
he was trying to combine three dreads by mashing them together with wax. i told him elmers glue might be more effective and he got sorta mad. it made my day.
