Hi Adrian!!...I am doing TNR too but I am afraid that I dont have a lot of experiences neither!! :^P

I started mines 7 weeks ago and they seem to be doing good...the ones in the front are progressing super slow (they are thinner too)..but the ones in the back are progressing faster,, I don't know if it is because they are thicker or because they are on the back!!

It looks like they are shrinking a little and are getting some loops and knots and I have a lot of loose hair most of them on my roots but around the dreads too!! :^D

Hey all!

I'm goin with the T&R metod, too and i'm also around week 7.

My hair is still a little short, but the formed locs by t&r are at least not falling apart.

But i must confess, that i reopened 2 locs at front, cause they didn't look

natural and i splitted a couple in half at the back, cause they were very thick and

seemed not to fit together very well.

In general i'm pleased with t&r. The ones i reopened, i let dread all natural by now, the

rest makes good progress.

The dreads at the back mature faster, cause of the movent while sleeping on.

This causes more knots and tightens the dread faster than at the front.

So all we need is patientce, we're on a good way!

I admire the people who do natural dreads all the way!!....I am a very impatient person and it is killing me sometimes to see how slow they are progressing but I am pretty happy in general and I cant wait for them to mature all the way!!

Yeah, you're right, i'm also kind of impatient. But i guess this is exactly our goal

we're heading for.

I can imagine now, why people with dreads love their hair that much!
