To begin: I had a severe issue with brushing my hair. I would brush it probably upwards of 50 times a day. Because of this it's damaged.
Yes yes that's right, I'm going natural! It's been two weeks now, and I have probably ~20 baby dreads, and the rest are already sectioned off and ready to form!
Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite
Before dreading. That's me at the bottom making the stupid face. This is from December but it's literally the most recent picture I could find where I didn't look too terrible.
Here's my hair after 1 day. As you can see it's starting to section already! I think.
Here I am on day 7! My hair's a little more sectiony and I have an example of a few large loops starting. I have pictures of little baby dreads I had, but you can hardly tell they are baby dreads at all so I won't upload them here.
Yay! More hair pictures and another shot of a baby dread. Like I said, I probably have about 20 of them now, but obviously I won't post them all.
I can't wait to see what my hair will look like a week from now, let alone a month!
Going natural is so incredibly rewarding. I know if you want dreads, it might seem like it will take forever, but trust me, I am SO glad I did it this way!! I would never turn back!
