Basically I just wanted to share this because im blumin excited.so today (29/07) is the 4mth mark
I started with a little bacombing (only ever doneonce)and had 27 sections. I counted today and I have 45 dreads!! There is still alot of loose hair but only a couple of sections have only a couple of knots holding them together. The others are doing really well. I am still completley fasinated that hair does this like it just knows how to go into locks on its own. people I chat to are fascinated also and many ask how my hair is doing.
I have been washing with BS/ ACV but am thinking about changing to Dr Bronners soon as I find the BS iritates my skin.
So finally here is some pics 1st 3 pics are from the 1st day the rest are from now.
little natural dread oh so squiggly :D
Lots of loose hairs flying around, i need toseparateoften.
Back shot not as much going on as the front and sides.
some of myfavourites!
5 months update 02/09/12
This one is the Problem fattie dread root
**6 Month Update** 30/09/12
finally got this up. My dreads are coming along, definitely in the messy stage! Love it!! And love that all I have to do is wash and separate. Added some more beads in the back today. Its difficult to sometimes see others on here and in like a 5 months they seem to have progressed tons, but my journey is special as I is my own. And I love it that the niggly thoughts about combing have loooooong gone! Im in this for the long haul now. So anyhow here's a few pics to show what my dreads are upto. took out the previous wrap too, it'd been there a while and was not dreaded in except for the top, definatley made that strand pretty thin, im hoping it fattens up a little bit. :D
8 month update 03/01/13- stopped the BS/ACV wash for a couple of months due to scalp issues and hard water, so switched to faith in nature liquid tea tree shampoo. progress seems to still be happening, although a lot slower that it used too with BS wash. so heres a few pic. camera quality not great.
I have quite a few dreads that are like this at the ends.
