Growing Dreads

I’ve been wanting to grow dreads for so long but I’ll be honest, I cared too much what everyone else thought.  I admired everyone who had them from afar.  Well, I’m growing dreads now.  I have no idea how it’s going to look, but that’s the exciting part.  I’ve been doing all kinds of research.  I’m going the natural way. Wash and go.  Let it lock up on it’s own.  I have been separating some.  I know this is a commitment and it’s going to take some time before I see some results.  Most sites/people have said 1 to 2 years.  My hair is starting to lock, it’s been about a month, but it’s going pretty well, I guess.  I’ve been a little self-conscious, but I’m fighting through it.  Mind games!  It feels good doing what I want.  I’m going to document my dread journey on here.  This is it after a month:

I’m exciiiiiiited.
