My second week of dreadlock progress.
Not a lot has changed, but they have settled down some more and gained even more length.
Still a lot of work and definitely getting a good upper body workout, palmrolling 95 dreads each night.
Though I’m lucky I can usually persuade my long-suffering daughter into helping out.
My dreads get a lot of attention when I’m out and about.
Mostly I don’t mind, but it can be a little tiring when I’ve got a heap to do and every second person wants to ask about my hair!
Lesson learned though, if I’m busy and don’t want to discuss my dreads, I will cover them or wear my rasta hat.
I am looking forward to the end of this first month and getting into my ‘A week’, which is when I can wash out the wax and get to creating more knots.
I have a lot of loose hairs and a few straight sections that need work.
I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and while these things aren’t really noticeable, it drives me crazy knowing they are there!
Another lesson of the dreading process, patience.
