AMPs Natural Timeline


Member Journals and Timelines

I can understand the small town crowd.  Here in Eastern NC we are really rural.  But I have to remind myself that I chose to do dreadlocks because it increases my sense of beauty, not everyone else's.  People will always judge what is different to them.

I for one think they look awesome for 4 months and you are on track to have some really killer looking dreads in the future.  

If you ever feel judged come see me at the beach before you go!  We can frolic in the ocean and let the sun dry our hair.  My dreads will hit 1 year come May, my husband will be at 2.5 years, another guy at church has had his for 15 years, and I just connected with another cool chick in Jacksonville who is about 2 months in now.

I will be posting some updated pics soon to show my progress.  We can be dreadlocked "freaks" together!

After trying to twist and rip and a few other strategies and having them fall out I finally left them to do their own thing.  It takes time and a lot of patience but as your other dreads tighten up it seems to give them more room to do what they need to.  I have dreads in all stages of maturity, from straight, babies to maturing shrunk locks.

Loose roots can be super frustrating for sure.  My hair is pretty silky and fine so I have had my fair share of dreads loosening or falling out completely.  I am now 8 months.

I have some dreads with 4 inches of root still and some that are about 1/2 inch of undreaded.  It all evens itself out I suppose! For now I just am like, well it gives me a little length since most of mine have gone through some extreme shrinkage.

I'm hoping by my 1 year mark they will all be within 1-2 inches of loose hair.

Glasses ???


Dread Maintenance

I wear glasses about 90% of the time and haven't noticed a huge change in how that area is dreading in comparison to the rest of the nape/neck area.

Just be careful with taking them on and off if the dread is sitting close to the ear

having anxiety about shrinkage


General Talk

I can feel you on the shrinkage.  mine started at almost midback.  now my most mature dreads that have finished shrinking are about ear/jaw length. I lost 2/3 of my length.  I have one that is only 2 inches long.  I luckily have some in many different lengths and stages so it is about shoulder length at its longest.

Shrinkage is part of the journey and you need to embrace it.  looks like you will have a lot more to come.  try different styles and ways to make it not bother you as much.

What is your hair looking like now?

Twist and Rip Dreadlock Timeline (6 Months!- UPDATED)


Member Journals and Timelines

 I love finding people on roughly the same timeline as me!  let's me put things in perspective.  there's days I wish I didn't have pics of my hair but think it's going to be great to look back on it all.  I look forward to seeing your pics once you post some!

Thank you both for the kind words.  Iover my dreads and wish I would have started earlier!

too big dreads? your opinion?


Help! Save My Dreads

They look like a good size.  SE always says 30+ is a good number to start with.  to me they look like a good size.

IF they're bigger that 1 inch by 1 inch at the base you may want to seperate them and retry but they look good from here!
