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.
