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!

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


Member Journals and Timelines

Happy 6 months to my little dreadies!! It is crazy how much they have been progressing in the last few months.  I feel like most of my dreads are now in the teen/adolescent stage which is super exciting.  All my trouble spots have resolved themselves and there are solid dreads throughout my entire head.  There are some that are still loose or that have 4-6 inches of loose root but they are progressing and that is good.  

Total I have about 56 dreads now and there are a few new ones forming from other loose hair.  I love looking at my hair.  There are so many knots, loops, and zigzags.  I think I have 6 dreads that are still just straight towards the top/front of my hair.  These were the ones I twist and ripped that stayed in.n I think they were a little too tight when I first did them so their progress has been slower than the ones that were left to reform on their own.  

I have had a fair amount of shrinkage in the past month.  You sometimes can't see it when my hair is down but the under layer is getting short.  My hair started at about bra strap length and most are dusting my shoulder or are between chin and shoulder length.  When mature I think they will be around chin/jaw length throughout.  I also have a super shorty which is about 3 inches long total, but its a cutie.  The ones that haven't shrunk are driving me crazy or the loose strays that haven't blunted into the dread.  Did I mention I got my first really blunted, cylindrical dread.  That was exciting.  Here is a picture of my hair at 2 months vs about a week ago.  The second picture is from about 3 weeks ago.

I have started to make some videos for updates and so will be posting my 6 month video shortly.  I also posted some more pictures of individual dreadies on my profile, so check them out!

Here is to the next 6 months and the progress!

I like to think of it more as a giant photo timeline.  being able to see a photo journey of someone's progression.  you can tell some people have extensions or crochet/do maintrnance.  I do not go to them for any advice, I stick with this site for any questions or dreadication questions.

Just a good place for a lot of pictures of dread heads at their different stages of their journeys

I follow dreadication, wonderlocks, dreads.rule, dreadshare, and a few others.  I also follow individual dreadies that I like the look of their profile.  there are some great male dreadhead as well as awesome females to follow.  some I like are:

Female: dreadfulcee, thishappyhippie, encoreever, ellyverandi, 

Male: messy dread (he's just starting), daydreaming101, atillazq, zanderwaves, dropbeatsnotbombs

But they are my style.  there are so many out there.  a great place is to look through the search feature.

AMPs Natural Timeline


Member Journals and Timelines

Thought I would chime in on the lower back hair not dreading.  I was having that problem too.  it seemed like nothing I did would help the hair.  

FINALLY at 4 months to 6 months the hair just started dreading.  I have some that have 3-4 inches of dread now and feel like it's finally progressing, however slowly.  ir has definitely been frustrating though.

You can look at my timeline and see in the photos around 2 months what mine was doing.  then you Can see my video that shows where it was at 5 months, which is a lot better.

I also posted a seperate forum on it and got some encouragement.

Time is all you need.

9 months neglect video


General Talk

It's looking great!  awesome to see the progress you're having.  I think I'm going to let a few of mine Congo as well so they're not so thin in some places.

Keep it up

I only look at a few people on You Tube but I do follow a lot of people on Instagram with dreads.  I love being able to look back at their progress and see where it is now.  Or finding people in my same time of the journey.

Will this hair ever dread? Feeling frustrated


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Just wanted to post an update on this to say that Soaring Eagle and all the rest of you were absolutely right.  It does just take time.  That section of hair is now completely filled with dreads.  They are anywhere from 2-3 inches of knotted tip to all the way to the root and progressing great.  They will be 6 months old in about 2 weeks.

I am trying to get that area cleaner with the dreadlock shampoo by focusing on that section and that has really cut down on the oiliness that I was having.  Today I washed it and had to do a massive separation as everything was trying to knot together down there.

So if you are feeling like your hair isn't progressing just know that time will make it happen.

*peace, love, and happiness*
