New to the site but have been around browsing for many months now. I got a lot of inspiration from Timelines and photos on this site, so i figured i'd post mine. I started out growing my afro for 1 year to get dreadlocks, so i tried to get salon twists put in and i didnt like the chemicals nor did i want to keep going back for retwists (scam) and all the pain. So i took a shower and they just came undone as soon as the water hit them, after two weeks of having the twists in. So after waiting about 4 more months i made the choice to try and, only this time going natural! Since i was blessed with an awesome head of hair i figured why not try. So as of 6/30/14 i am on day number 5 of my journey, all i have done is.... NOTHING. I just make sure when i wash them im very gentle and only rub on the scalp so i dont ruin any knots. My hair when wet and then dries, goes into its own sections and what looks like "coils" so what you see in the pics is natural sections and i think will make very beautiful dreadlocks. I am looking foward to this journey and love any support in the process. All it takes is time and patience which i have a lot of, just making friends along the way would be awesome!
