hey:) i'm about one month in an stoked with the progress! every morning is like xmas rushing to the mirror to see how they're changing. didn't use rubber bands though? just counted em yesterday and i got about 80 in a mohawk! theyre pretty thin but i figured i could always just let em congo later on.. i've been using a weak salt water spray and leaving it in, working AWESOME. though its supposed to be harsh on the scalp if left in i haven't had any trouble so far will report if i do. peace:)

Mine are TnR.. well half of them lol. Alot of them slipped out, but i didn't re-twist them, i just let them go natural, and do their thing. They were obviously meant to do it on their own, so i let them be. :D I started my dreads back up July 11th, underneath my hair is pretty tight, the top (where most of them slipped out) are just starting for form their own knots :)

I have a picture of about two weeks in, in my album. My sections were no where near perfect, and were alldiff. sizes, i kind of just grabbed a chunk of hair, in a somewhat circle and went to town lol. All my roots loosend, it's normal no matter what route you go, they will tighten up over time. Alot of my TnR's completely slipped out, and I never re-twisted, just let them be, and they knotted on their own, with their own sections, I just guided them by separating. :) If you have any other questions feel free to shoot me a message. :D <3

I'm sure they're fine, they'll more than likely figure themselves out :) learning patience was a big part of my journey, I had NO patience, at all what-so-ever. When my TnRs slipped out, I decided it was for a reason, so instead of re-twisting, I learned to be patient with my hair, and as soon as I let go, they started forming, it's weird out things work, and how peoples journey's work with their growth. I've seen it happen so many times on here, about how their journey helped them grow in some way. That was just one of mine :). I never thought dreads (even being my second time around) could actually have such an impact, even if you don't realize it at first!

Lol completely! the fuzzy-ness will turn into frizzy-ness, and they'll make loose hairs, which will turn into new dreads, it's like a birthing process, it's weird, but amazing!
