So just wanted to say hi and get some advice regarding my "dreadlets"- they are only 3 months only so I don't feel I can properly call them dreads yet. I have around 120ish dreads that were started using twist and rip. Generally I'm enjoying the process and the change in me - initially I wanted pretty perfect skinny dreads, but reading around and thinking through the practicalities I realised thatperfect wasn't for me...no way I can palmroll that many!since they've started I've began to more and more enjoy the imperfection and have found it kind of releasing. I'm normally so impatient!So celebrating exciting loops - butalso celebrating the freedom I'm finding in it. Happy days! So I've done no maintance except trying to separating them - which I haven't done that often to be honest.
So the last week or two I've been a bit overwhelmed at how much volume there is! I've got thick hair anyway so it's always been big. And there seem to be patches where Ican't rip them apart,and they are growing into each other. I'm begining to feel abit disheartened with them and wondering if I should havedone bigger sections.So I just wanted to get some thoughts - is 120ish too many? Will they dread ok? Will they begin to lie a bit flatter? Did anyone hit a mental blip around this point? I've attached some photos. Any feedback/advice would be fab
