I'm having some sort of awakening lol... realized over the past week that instead of wanting to palm roll I'm staring at my dreads wanting to see more loops, bumps, zig zags, and it makes me laugh because I was the person having all this anxiety at the beginning, asking things like "They won't get REALLY loopy will they? They will go down over time, won't they?" and now I can't understand at all what I was worried about. I want them to look crazy. I CRAVE them looking crazy. And every time I see a new loop or bump that wasn't there before I'm like YAYYYYY! It's the oddest thing, I remember before starting my journey I would look at pics of people showing off their craziest dreads and think "uh oh, I hope mine don't do that" or "why do they like them that way?" and now I LOVE IT. I think it's so insanely beautiful and I can't WAIT for mine to shrink up and get more wild.

I'm only 5 weeks in and this journey is already changing me. I knew it would, but to really see such a profound change in myself in such a short time has really inspired me. I can't even relate to the person I was pre-dreads now... and this feeling of loving the process has made even more sure that dreadlocks are the path for me. I've never been so excited about my hair lol!

I'm sure a lot of you guys have had "this moment" but I still thought I'd share. :)

Haha. I feel the same way. Every day I wake up to more loops is a good day. A few of my dreads have just exploded into loops and bumps. It's awesome. I do look forward to having mature dreads but I'm definitely enjoying the stage I'm in right now.

awesome. i enjoy my loops and bumps. other seem to think the way it looks makes it look dirty, and gross. people these days...

I love all my loops and bumps but mine are all starting to disappear which i guess is a good thing but I'm starting to miss them lol but i think loops and bumps give dreads amazing character and helps us be able to really watch see all the progress we make in our journeys

loopy love!! :]

i love this :) and never understood those ppl thart panic at loops and criochrt palm roll or (eeek) lock docta them away

loops are 1 of the most beautiful parts of the process

Good for you.  Mine are 5 years old and completely mature.  But once in a while I see others going through  that messy phase, and I kind of miss that part of the process

Yes I'm going to enjoy it as long as it will last. :)

i name my unusual dreads! they are my favorite. i love how the hair changes and twists.

the first few times i did dreads i waxed them, rolled them, tightened, hurt my hair and my scalp trying to get perfect locks. always fussing....

then i learned better. this time its all wild and crazy and oh so fun!

You will have more. Some of your current loops and kinks may get larger. As SoaringEagle can attest to you will have new dreadlocks that form and go through the development phases all by themselves.

That is EXACTLY what is happening to me. I've been neglecting since t+r and each loop is a happiness. I thought I wanted the perfect locks and the first time to this site I thought no way, those loops are NOT what I want. The change in me has been profound. I love my hair for the first time in my life. I can't wait to wash it each time. It's amazing what hair can do to you. I am more confident and at peace with myself than I have EVER been in my life. I even see the world around me in a different light. All because of HAIR. I wouldn't have believed it two months ago if someone had told me this is what would happen.

haha u have no idea how often i hear stuff like that

whats the point in perfect dreads anyway?

way too much work involved

I feel exactly the same. I went from wanting perfectly round dreads to my favourite ones being the ones that are zigzagged and had some crazy loops and weird shapes in them. I look at some of the pictures on here of people who have a lot of loops and feel kind of jealous. It's funny how the process of dreading can change your outlook on things.

So cool how so many of us experience these same feelings. I swear, dreads are magic!
