Hey, just read your post about dreadlocks, as a white girl with dreads, I've read a lot of stuff on both sides of the fence, but it's really good reading something that someone put real thought into. I don't and never will claim that dreads are a white persons creation, dreadlocks are something I've admired for a long time (about 8 years in fact!) and finally having them is amazing, but so many white people get them and instantly think they're the origin of them. Makes me feel pretty embarrassed

This is the perfect mindset to have when it comes to dreads. 

Personally, I’ve stopped caring whether or not white people have dreads, I’m just tired of people claiming that they have some deep ancestral connection to them when they know they don’t. 

If you want them, fine it’s your head after all. Just don’t play dumb when people question the authenticity of the intentions behind them. 

I’m glad you’re enjoying your hair and even more glad that you acknowledge the history behind them and respect it. 

And please, please, please, take good care of your hair.

So the journey starts..

My first prescription of hormones arrived today and I was pleased that my good friend @cruelladevaudeville was around when I took the first one.

It’s a huge step for me and the first vlog will be posted on my full blog later today. It’s going to be an exciting and interesting year and I’m glad I’m in the fortunate position of being able to share it with you all.

See you soon!! :)
