one year of dreadlocks.

hey guys! four months ago i made a post about the 15 tnr dreadlocks i had started on and that was basically the last of my updates, so i figured i'd make this timeline official finally!

alright so here are my before pictures. i had super long thick red hair. i hated brushing it and usually didn't.


so i made 3 dreads by following a tnr video on youtube. they were a work in progress for several months. starting with three i made in may. a month later i had 15 more...


finished my head a couple weeks later... 1 or my original three dreads was really going crazy at this point because i interlocked it before i knew any better. this was a huge mistake!!! NEVER DO IT! i put it in a little cast to try to contain it somehow. the root was so small and the rest was just HUGE. i thought it was going to fall off!!!!

 


a little while later i realized something really weird was going on with my dreads. they really were resisting the sections that i put them in and it became uncomfortable. a lot of my dreads were dreading into like 3 different ones at the root, so i took out a bunch and let them naturally resection before starting over. so i'm not really sure how old they were at this point. average about 2 months

 


and here they are now! 4 months average! they've lost a lot of length and puffed out way more than i expected them too so far...

 

^my boyfriend calls that my hatchet face haha...

from now on i'll just be able to update pictures every other month or so!

this picture shows how my tnr lost their "braidy" look after a couple months. the dread on the left is one month old and the dread on the right is about 3 months old!
Your dreads are looking great! :)

Beautiful dreads, beautiful woman !
amazing dreads dear..
they re gonna look even better in a couple of months;)
very beautiful






my phone camera/webcam are obviously ot ideal for timeline pictures, but it's as best as i got!!! i took a lot of pictures of individual crazy dreads, but it's such a pain in the ass to upload them... we're 5 months average now! off to clean my bathroom! hahaha
i wish i had as much hair as you do. really beautiful!

thank you heather! for a while after i tnripped i felt like they were really thin and i was freaked out like, "where'd all my hair go?!" but they have puffed out just like everyone said! haha


oh and here's another one. i took this outside so the color and lighting and quality is better.

wow many of them look pretty much natural and damn sexy on ya haha
they look great
really good thickness for ya too
u gonna let the bangs dread natural?
wow they are looking really good! I love the color of your hair. :)
aww thank you! i have two little tnr bang dreads becuse my bangs were pretty thick. i think i'm gonna keep the rest of them around for a while so i can mess around and experiment with them :) probably will let them dread up eventually. i don't comb them or anything haha.

and thanks taye! i have a love/hate relationship with my hair color. hehehe
