Dreadsock or not?

I need a dread sock. I realized that when I put a do rag on that it conforms my hair to the shape of my head. For the longest while I did not mind putting a do rag on even though I realized it took my dreads a while to fully relax and detangle. So basically my hair looks tight, instead of like flowing tresses. That’s why I decided to use a satin pillowcase to sleep on. I was not sure about it at first. I thought that that would give my hair a frizzy look the next morning. It didn’t! My hair was free flowing and as long as one could expect from a 10 month journeyman. So in some respects the satin pillow cased worked even though I think it does age your dreads between being retightened. That is why I think I need a dread sock. It will keep my hair in place without compressing it and it will reduce the friction that occurs when I lie on my pillow. If anyone know of a great sock for dread wearers let me know please. Also I am interested to know if a dreadsock is worth the effort or is it no better than a satin pillow case or a do rag for that matter? Thanks in advance for your feedback!

It Has Been a Good Week

This week I have worn my hair braided down. For the first time it was in this style at work. It really worked out well because even though I work in an air-conditioned environment it was gets hot. So having my hair pulled up off of my ears has been great because it helps me to stay cool.  On the other side a lot of customers and co-workers thought my new style was a good look for me. I will just say it is always good to get positive feedback, always. My circle of friends/ family have complimented my hair which adds to the overall feeling and confidence to continue to venture out and seek out things that compliment my style. I never thought I would say this but it has been a good hair week. lol.
