Well it happened! I’m so happy with the beginning of my dread journey. They don’t look how I want them to look yet, but part of the process is accepting and working the many phases of dreads.
They’re currently very sore,stiff, and tight. Also they are extremely rough, I’m not sure if that’s going to stay or not, I don’t really mind. The ends are wispy and the actual dreads aren’t very long, but I’m getting extensions soon, so they’ll be longer and fall more like I envisioned (I hope!)
I’m so excited to have finally jumped in and done it. This is the beginning of a new chapter.
