Anddd the result!
A brand new bob!
I do miss my dreads and I think I always will. However I definitely achieved my goal and had 6 great years. Now I can enjoy long hot showers, cozy un-scratchy nights and generally a lighter load :)
I hope you enjoyed my dreadlock journey :)
Taking the plunge,
This is the final result. I managed to save a fair amount of hair and with a good condition is was not in bad shape. I just needed to book in with a professional to neaten up the edges.
So these were my dreads at their longest. Taken in Feb 2013. Some of the questions I was at this point were:
Is it your own hair? Yes all my own hair. 6 years worth to be exact!
How do you wash it? Like normal hair silly but it takes 2 days to dry!
Is it uncomfortable? Unfortunately yes :( sleeping is a bit of a nightmare as it doesn’t matter which way you turn you get a face full of dreadlocks!
Are they heavy? Only when they’re up in a bun and the weight of them wasn’t distributed so evenly.
