I FINALLY GOT EXTENSIONS!
They weren’t at all what I was expecting them to look like, and although I do wish they were thicker and longer, I’m extremely happy to have them look presentable, and like dreads, when I have them down. They’re entering the super frizzy phase.
I found that immediately after I got the extensions my head was significantly less itchy. The original plan for tat day was also to get maintenance done, but I was kindly advised to wait because it would be better for them, and they could totally make it another few weeks. I did a whole video about that day linked below.
This last week of having short dreads was spent pining for longer ones, and waiting for the ability to cover my insecurities with my hair once again, although I’m finding that I have so many at this point, that unless I become Cousin It, I won’t be able to hide.
