I made my dreads a year ago now, (actually a year 2 months or so) I have no regrets. none. For me it is the perfect hairstyle, since I don’t like to fuss and mess with my hair every morning. okay, and just to clear it up, dreaddies do shower. I could shower every day, I don’t…but I could. I wash them too, did you know that? I have a non-residue leaving soap that I use. I do need to oil them to keep the fuzzies down, but I do that about once a month now (since the dreads are pretty tight) and it takes about 30 min.
I will tell you that in the beginning they are TONS of work, and I did doubt once or twice if I would make it through the process. I wondered if my hair would even dread at all….but with no problem it did. My hair is now done shrinking, which is great. It “shirnks up as all the knots form and the dreads tighten. Since I have fine hair they shrunk more. I really should weave in the frizzies…I just have never gotten around to it. I think I need a crochet hook for that, yeah I have not gotten that yet.
