9 months old.
9 months. Wow. It's been a frustrating, love hate relationship. There's been times when I've sat in front of the mirror and head my held, wondering what the hell I was thinking! Dreads aren't a flash in the pan hair do; it's a major change and a long term one at that. The dreads looked fuzzy, messy and I would look longingly at photos of people with beautiful smooth looking dreads.... eventually I realised the difference between those photos and my dreads, is simply mine aren't mature yet. Getting there, sure, but still a ways. I can see improvement though; starting to get that smooth matted look - yes I have a lot of loose, fuzzy hair too; I did spend a while crocheting it in, but as my hair grows so fast - see those bands half way up, that's 9 months of hair growth, it felt like I'd only just finished crocheting in loose hairs before I needed to do it again. While the fuzziness bothered me, I'm too lazy to be arsed with all that; so mostly I wore head scarves/bands, and I kept my hair up mostly.
