A little over a month
Fun things are happening after a month or so of dreading. I'm starting to get the loops and stringy hair and several of my dread babies are starting to form. The bottoms are starting to come loose on most of them however they are still holding their form.
Pretty sure some shrinkage is starting to happen too since several dreads are starting to kink up. It feels awesome.
The only issue I'm seeing is that several of my dreads feel really thin towards the roots. I'm guessing it's because they're just not fully dreaded up near the scalp whereas the rest is fluffy and frizzy, making them feel fuller near the middle and bottom.
I'm really pleased with the progress so far. I honestly didn't think they'd be forming this quickly but I'm 100 percent okay with it.
