I am so excited for you! I saw your post at the Kitchen Table, but you were gone. Getting dreads was one of the best decisions I ever made. I think you will feel the same. You have a lot of length, for a beginner. You didn't have to cut any perm off? You're looking good. It takes abut 3 weeks for the locking to start. If you can, avoid cotton scarves and pillow cases.
*doing a happy dance for you*
Also, a bonnet won't keep your locks smooth. My hair covering is made by Woolylocks, inc. I bough I from my loctician. They have a website. It keeps my locks smooth and out of the way when I am sleeping, and it never slips off. If there is an African shop in your area, they might carry something that will work.No, I didnt have to cut any permed hair, I been natural for maybe 5 years but I did cut six inches of split ends off, new mom last year= no sleep
I dont sit at the table for long...
I already feel that this is the best choice I made for my hair, it empowering and cool to just let my hair flow and do it natural.
Ive been using silk pillow cases and scarves for maybe 10 years now but thanks I was skeptical about using a bonnet cuz they always come off
