My Natural Dreads Timeline-Dreadlocks can form fast with neglect
Member Journals and Timelines
Sooo it's been 7 weeks now! sorry I suck at updating. But, here you go, the continuation of my dreadlocks adventure:
My shirt says "This is what a feminist looks like." I am not wearing a bra, sorry.
I don't know if you can see it, but there is a large gap in the middle of my hair. Awkward shrinkage.
My camera sucks. Sorry. Oh well. Maybe you can see how crazy it's going.
Me showing off some of the shrinkage back there. You can see the sectioning that has happened.
My craziest loopy guy!!
So, at this point, mostly the underneath back of my hair has dreaded fully (not locked up of course, but you know what I mean). However, the top is beginning it's journey at this point--here's an example!
This is a terrible picture because my camera. However, this is my biggest, thickest dread. I call it Big Mama. Big Mama is thick and huge and nasty. I love it. I don't know if I should put a bead on her at this point? I don't know how beads work. But yeah.
The front here is beginning to knot up too!
Many of my dreads look like this. Lots of shrinkage, big clumps of loopy madness. Not sure what to do with them, haha.
This is my favorite dread!! AH! It's awesome.
What happened to that retarded dread, you ask? Well, I put a bead on it, and it's still retarded. I took it off now, but, eh. The rest is beginning to knot up at this point. I'm hoping it will dread at some point, because right now it still feels like a kind of harsh mess of clumpy hair. Not soft and cuddly.
So, that's it for now! I'll be back in a week or more.
