A wrote the last post about my hair because I had spent the previous few weeks contemplating combing it out. Part of me thought if I said something that it would tip the scales in favour of keeping them. Alas, my ploy did not work. I spent March 26th to 31st combing out all 44 dreads. I’m a little sad about it, but it did seem like the time for them to go. The plan is to wait 4 or 5 years and redo them, now that I know a lot more about taking care of dreads and how my hair reacts to them. I will be keeping them for at least a year next time, if not longer.
