9 months neglect video
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
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*
How awesome fellow nc peep! I live on the coast! I seperate certain sections more than others so you just have to go with What feels right. I have had 2 that I had to rip apart in order to prevent huge sections. I have a few others that are bigger than I like but they aren't going to come apart unless I comb them out so I'm waiting to see how they mature and wil go from there.
Can't wait to see how you progress
My hair also likes to make little u's. It was kind of like 2 dreads were holding hands. All the loose wispy parts would join in with each other, which was pretty annoying.
It has sorted itself out now but when it was going on I would gently seperate after washing and then sort of twist the ends together to dry using my finger. It helped to the the flyaway a little until it dried. Now that those dreads have w inches of dread and aren't little knot balls at the bottom they don't catch nearly as much.
Hope this helps
So to me I'm thinking several things. I assume you are talking about the spots where you can see the line of your scalp?
It looks like it might be how you sleep. That might be where you rest your head and it is pushing up along that dread section and pushing the dreads apart, showing more scalp. It may also be causing those spots to dread up and get fuzzy making it look like less hair is there.
I would try to switch your sleep position and see if that helps reset that area of your head. Your hair us short so I think that makes it look a little more noticeable.
Welcome! Gooduck with your journey, I'm almost 5 months in but did a starter method. My hair us stick straight so it's been more challenging at times. I think your hair will take nicely.
My phone does that too where it cuts off. I turn it sideways though and it fixes itself so you can see everything.
