The Art of Patience

Posted by meli on Thursday, July 16, 2009 in | No comments
Embarking on this Dread Journey; I know that Patience is going to be a virtue that I am forced to embrace. Haa. Its one of the reasons I wanted to do dread in the first place (one of many). I can be very impatient at times ... I am looking forward not only to watching my hair transform over the next couple of years (and beyond), but also experiencing myself transform in terms of patience (among many other wonderful things).

I'm not there yet. I want my dreads all locked up and formed, and I wanted them formed NOW! Well, ladies and gents, that isn't going to happen. It's called a "journey" for a reason, and it's going to be a loooong one (especially since we weren't having much luck with the crochet method, so we stopped trying and stuck to just backcombing). I am really excited about and looking forward to experiencing it, even though, at this moment, I just wish the dreads were "cute already")! lol. So much so that I have already loosened them up to redo them FOUR times already! LOL. In my defense, I plan to have these dreads for a very very long time. I want to make sure the style (thickness and placement) are how I want them now - instead of having dreads that I completely hate down the road, right? My biggest thing was/is thickness. I don't want thick, fat dreads. I want smaller more flowy ones. I think the fourth try did the trick ... we'll see
