1 YEAR UPDATE finally! (Pics from before till present)
Member Journals and Timelines
This is a pic i took while i was still growing my hair, very thick and curly.
Then i made a big mistake, went and crocheted, backcombed and "made" dreads (which actually i dont regret, i always like to think positive ). Thankfully did not add wax. DAY 1
they look so fake! haha. anyway after almost two months of frequent crocheting i came across this site. Immedeitly i stopped crocheting and just let my hair be. My hair became so frizzy. I followed advice from most expereinced and just didnt care.
this is 1 month after i stopped crocheting (3 months all together)
getting more frizzier! at this point i have take out 3 of the most frizziest dreads completely out cos i was really frustrated with them :S (3 months into crochet recovery, 5 months alltogether)
5 months into crochet recovery (7months all together) things were starting to look alot better. frizz was taming, and i can feel and see that my dreads are being more "naturalized"
And now its been exactly a year, and there is an obvious difference compared to the picture from day 1. They have matured alot and the fake look is fading away.
There s still more to recover but if it wasnt for this site, i woudve either cut off my dreads by now or i have dreadlocks look a like damaged hair in one place. Thanks to everyone who help me throughout my journey providing valuable info and inspiration.
Lesson learned: from 1 year of experenice...well this cant be stressed upon more, dreads need time time and more time thats all. therers still alot to learn from all of you, i will be around
