JJ’s hair was a bit long so I decided to tidy it up a bit. I’ve no proper idea what I’m doing with his hair, but the only thing he will let me do is cut through it to tidy up the knots a bit. If I didn’t do this the dreadlocks would get really thick and ugly. He wouldn’t let me try and separate knows with my fingers because of the pain, so the scissors have been the tool of choice.
I started cutting it in this manner this afternoon and his hair was just messy and he wasn’t happy with the slightest tug to his scalp, so I started chopping some of the length. We got shorter and shorter and the compromise for his request to cut it all off and my wish to keep some length was this (see photo).
It looks so cute and makes him look a bit younger and I think he’s really happy with it.
