At the beggining of my dreadlock journey, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my hair. I was tired of being disappointed when beauticians did what they wanted to my hair, not what I was paying for. I grew tired of putting relaxers in my hair. Between wigs, braids, relaxers and weave I found myself unhappy with my hair results. I never kept a hair style any longer than 6 weeks. Some hairstyles I was wanting changed before I drove home from the beauty salon. I decided to do dreads in my hair. I told myself I needed to give my hair 3-4 yrs of locking to decide if this is right for me. I am now at the 2 yr mark.
