Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support
Wow!! Your dreads are so impressive!!! It is hard to believe you have ever cut your hair!!!
Would you still recommend neglect sectioning of I have some odd pieces underneath that are much shorter than the rest of my hair? When I originally did mine, I just grabbed all the short hairs to make one short dreadie so as not to worry about them so much. You have got me really interested, now, though.
So if I wash my hair tomorrow, my hair will start slowly sectioning itself but not conforming to the old sections? Did you use neglect method to get your sections? I am afraid that my hair would try to lock up in crazily uneven sections like the manual ones before haha I will check out some neglect timelines/forums though c:
I am too nervous for the neglect method, I think, but after a lot of struggle, I took mine out and am going to simply have them sectioned by my cousin who is a hairstylist, and then let the sections do as they will. Maybe a little backcombing to speed up the process, but not sure yet. I spent a few days enviously scrolling through dreadlock pictures and feeling more and more uncomfortable with my choice to do such big wad sections.
Yeah I will definitely keep the tips loose, because I can already see how much they help! And I really like her dreads, but I also see that some of hers are congos too, which gives the appearance that they are getting much thicker. In a way, the maintenance is easier for me right now because there are so few to keep from congoing. But even though they are already tangled pretty good, they dry very easily even without a hair dryer so it's hard for me to imagine it taking 4 days to dry, though I do believe you! I think people with massive congos of little dreads could maybe sympathize with the situation so maybe I'll find a few of them to try and talk me out of big dreads
