Let the journey BEGIN. (input greatly appreciated)

Here is one gem that I have thus far learned...
I did twist and rip. They have all fallen out, and their real journey begins. The last one fell out at the four.5 month mark. Actually it didn't so much fall apart, as divide itself into three sections. I look back and I think that quite possibly my hair would be further along if I just did natural...because it took all that time before the real dreadlocking really began. The only sections that dreaded up quickly were the underside sections.
The tnr method is great if you want some control over where you want your sections. for the most part. Then again, your sections can still reject where you put them!
At this point you should just throw away your hairbrush!
