My dread journey...... Started 24 April 2010 with twist'n'rip method.. then left to go natural..... have about 35 dreads in total... all different shapes and sizes as i just kinda grabbed sections......

2 years old 24 April 2012.....   As you can see throughout the timeline my dreads never really shrunk much, they have kinda remained the same length over the 2 years, but have definately become a lot chunkier and locked up, so hoping soon they will start to gain some length....

Have dyed and bleached them far too many times.... through the first year i crocheted in loose hairs, but haven´t done this in a long time and dont plan to again... the roots seem to lock up themselves

*UPDATE - wedding dreadstyle / experiment to comb out one dread at 2.5 years

**UPDATE - Almost 3 year old dreads January 2013. (they only started to finally seem to gain length the last 6 mths)

Hope you Enjoy :-)   any questions, feel free to send me a message :-)

before/during twist and rip.... hair looks a bit grey cuz i used lock pepper to make them stay.. they kept slipping straight out...

Day 1- Poser-fest.............

Two weeks in.....

One month......

2 months............

3 months..........

4 months...


10 months...

1.5 years (and a lot of bleach and ocean water and sun

2 years

Wedding Dreads (March 2012)

experiment 2.5 years (combed out one dread)

almost 3 years - Jan 2013

they are looking great! awesome progression photos & plenty of them to give a great idea of what's happening. i love the reflection ones so you can see how the front  & back is lookin, clever you!

what program did you use to make the photo collages? 

oh i have that! perfect :) thanks

can't wait to see more photos, excited to see the changes! 

the very last melon said:

The program i used for the collages is Picasa. Free to download and very easy to use to edit pictures and make collages etc.....
My dreads are now 2 years old... almost, next week they will be :-) I never seemed to LOSE much length... but in 2 years they haven´t seemed to have GROWN much, i swear they are only a bit longer than when i made them.... but they are definately thicker and much more formed.... I´ll post a recent pic to the timeline to show what i mean....
