So it's been nearly 6 months and most of my dreads have knotted up, theres only about 7/8 in the front that are on their way but not quite there. So i've had major shrinkage and none of mine actually looks like dreadlocks. They have just all knotted into balls like this:- some big and some small, and I have lots of loose hair. I've been looking at other people's progress and although most people go through the normal birdsnest stage that i was fully expecting, most of the timeline photos i;ve seen have looked like dreads, just a messier version of the final set.
I am happy to keep going and the hats are a mainstay of my crowning glory now, I just want to know if there is anyone else that has a similar story that can reassure me everything is ok.
Thanks so much,
