Nearly 2 Year natural...ish timeline!

Hey all! decided to finally make a quick little timeline after 2 years of dreading.
Started with natural neglect.. then I had someone backcomb the undreaded hair them to section them out.
Did a little Tnr to the tips when they fell apart during the months after the sectioning.. Also I rubbed the tips at one point to make em a bit rounded. This maintenance lasted for a few months then I just let em go for a full year and, well.. check it out :D


This is about 2 months in of neglect. (The shower/palm roll helped define them for the pic)

Here we are at about 6 months neglect (again with palm rolling to section them out) I had someone in rome show me how to crochet, you can see it on the front dread... needless to say I didnt go through with it.

Now this is at 6 months, a week or two after the tnr/backcoming sesh. You can really see how that shortened them.. I lost a few inches..But the months after that session they really progressed
Here we are many many months later, at id say 1 year.. Some tnr here and there. and some palm rolling when I was bored. I also rubbed the tips a few months prior to the pic so my ends are lookin more rounded. check out that progression!!!

Here we are at 1 year and a few months


And where I am today. 2 years since the beginning of my journey. Took these pics a few days ago. Congos and natural love hidden up in there everywhere. :D




Hope you enjoyed it :D

Thanks, the congos are my favorite.
I left the ones that were already on their way alone. I only had the hair that wasnt doing anything backcombed and tnr. Looking back I wouldnt do it again.. But now that they have matured quite nicely I never need to worry about that again.
