18 month update

Posted on July 14, 2013 at 4:06pm 3 Comments

I'm pretty terrible at updating, life is pretty busy with grad school, work, and wedding planning! 

I started my dreads with twist & rip and some backcombing, then did a little bit more backcombing on a few around the 9 month mark. My long layer is finally starting to knot up. I'm at about 18 1/2 months now. 

I just have photos from instagram of my hair, so here they are. The photo of the sides was from last night, the front/back pic was from a few weeks ago!…

Hi Kelsey, I sleep on my right side and the left I have longer strands, one is still really long. To get the left side balancing out, I slept on the couch for a few weeks so I couldn't roll over, it really did help. My hair started long like yours and is up to my shoulders. ...Peace
