My Timeline - 5 months
Member Journals and Timelines
I'm about 5 months along my dread journey.
I started out with TnR, I did 2 or 3 locs this way, didn't like the results (and it took a ton of work) so I searched the internet until I found this site... and since then I've been natural/neglect.
My hair was a few inches longer then this when I started dreading, it's always been pretty healthy... I took prenatals throughout the last few years and I rarely used heat products on it.
Lots of progress!! Some have shrunk and knotted up a LOT but some in the front have yet to knot at all.
Sections are forming really well, lots and lots of knots.
Even more knots and tons of crazy loops and zig zags.
Sections are forming really well, I don't have to separate very often anymore. I started putting hemp threads and beads in around this time.
They're starting to look like dreads! Even though pics don't do it much justice... the sections are mostly formed. I don't have much loose hair anymore, but the front sections are still looking less formed then the back.
still have TONS of crazy loops and zig zags.
So this is where I'm at currently, more to come in a month or so
Thanks for looking
