Fatter Dreads Than Original TnR Appeared... 12 Weeks

I started my dread journey using the TnR method about 12 weeks ago and overall i'm very happy with how theyre locking up. However, I'm concerned that the thickness of my baby dreads has essentially doubled from the sized they were when I originally did TnR. The first day I was very satisfied with the size and did expect them to get a little bit larger, but not this much. Will my dreads get skinnier as they tighten, or just continue to grow?

 

Here are some pictures of the original sectioning of my hair before TnR, some of my dreads the first couple of days, and a picture of them from a couple days ago

they will get to be the sizes of the sections roughly

this is the most common mistake with sectioning dreads  people make them 3 times the size of the dreades the find they get 3 times thicker

if the sections are bigger then an inch start them over

 This is what they looked like the first couple days (including after the first wash). Will they shrink back down to that size again?

The first picture is of the sectioning on the nape of my neck, the second is most of the back of my head, and the third is a day or two after completing all the TnR sections

kinda hard to tell how big they might get since the pics are kinda small

but 37 is not a bad number thats average thickness

if it was closer to 20 i'd be worried

they won't be thin...but won't be too thick either
