i started doing my dreadlocks with lots of crocheting and other maintenance as some of you know (which was exceedingly stupid considering i used twist and rip). when i finally conceded to the natural method, i swore that when my dread's matured, i would keep the no maintenance lifestyle, but would blunt the tips once again.
and i am loving every bit of it. and recently ive noticed that i actually like the loose tips and natural look. plus because my hair was so curly before dreads, my tips curl and because of this, some of them are actually beginning to blunt all on their own.
so i have finally been sold on the natural way of dreading. had i never done any maintenance THIS would have never happened to one of them:
see how its so very thin in the middle? thats from undoing the damage done by weeks of ill-informed maintenance. i want to thank this site for saving my dreads before the damage became irreparable.
