dreads - week 2
i am enjoying them and wishing i had done this long ago when i first thought about doing it. sometimes i have to hem and haw over something for years before i get the guts up to do it...and then i kick myself for not doing it sooner....note to self: listen to your intuition!!!!
i did a salt water rinse on wednesday which seemed to help out a lot with getting them to hold. i also use the aloe vera gel every 3-4 days as well. it's hard to see the individual dreads below, and they definitely get less attention than the ones above. i need to sweet talk greg into palm rolling them for me because it's hard for me to do.
i had my first experience with the public comments a few days ago...i was at aldi and an older woman, of average dress approached me and said "i love your hair!" i smiled and said thanks and she replied "it reminds me of new york!" lol whatever that's supposed to mean!
yesterday at the library, a younger girl, maybe late teens/early twenties was giving me the hairy eye ball, lol. that made me want to laugh out loud....
