Thanks Daniel. What does your hair look like now? Did the curls turn into dreads?

I don't know what you would call these pieces, they're not dreadlocks

theyre curly and my hair seems to shrink even as its growing (the top is much heavier but the back keeps tightening up).

Thanks, I am going to slow down... I can tell my hair is chunky and dry enough to dread. Even now after undoing the straggles, it seems like it is ready to bunch up again.

<--- here it is this morning when I realized the crunchy knots were driving me crazy

I had wanted to see if it would hold a dread, and then afterwards it seemed easy to twist them in, until it got to be too chaotic.

I think reading some of the online info about sectioning still has me confused. I really don't want a tangled knot mess. But to section, you then have to force knot/twist/scrunch into fake dreads.

<------- here it is after I pulled out some of the top twists that were dry, pulling the wrong way, and generally causing havoc

I don't feel too bad because it's short and needs some length to dread anyway. I guess my thinking was to see if I could encourage the twists to begin growing in a freeform way. Now I'm back to just waiting and letting this weird chunkiness and curls do what they want.

here is the back currently. Frizzy and chunky weird, ------->

im posting this for my own record and in case it helps someone with similar issues. 😊

Bad day. I know I overdid the twisting and ripping and started to get ahead of myself.

Today I had a headache from pulling on my scalp, and I was really wondering if I had done too much too soon. I felt like I would end up with a tangled mess just knotting itself up, and I couldn't seem to keep from making it worse by twisting the ends constantly.

so I have shampooed and rubbed pretty vigorously, and I'm basically untwisting the tangles that I put in. I'm not sure if the pieces will stay together or if it will be so bad that I just want to comb it or wiggle it all out. I'm frustrated.

Can you post a pic? Do you have chunks starting to form together?

I found that a lot of my chunks were getting twisty (esp when wet) and I decided to try and twist/rip a couple of them to see if they would stay. They actually did stay together and it feels like the other twists are getting more chunky. I might do a few more but I don't want to make a mess at the roots. I do have a bit of Sideshow Bob in the morning when they stick out straight.

the back has so many sideways chunks, I do wonder if I should grab them and twist them into shapes before it becomes one big ice cream cone. It looks pretty funky right now. Yesterday I wore a headband and just pushed the messy parts to the back.

Well, I think I undid a couple of weeks' work. My hair wants to flip up at the edges (like wings)! and it's all kind of frizzed up and not dreading as much. It's okay, I'll just be more careful with my washing.
