Before starting my dread journey i was skeptical,

but exited to expiriment with the natural method of dreading.

so heres a rough timeline from day 1..

April

 

i have very fine straight hair. After my first baking soda wash with 1/3 cup baking soda and about 5 shots sea salt it came out a little textured..

 april

I was suprised at how quickly it joined into sections..

so i decided to learn to crochet tams to help the knotting.

after about 1 month of repeating that simple wash every other day or so..

1 may

i back combed that one before finding dreadlockssite. after about two months of the same wash and some extra love i start to see some real sections forming.

2 June 

ponytail gets thicker and hair begins to curl/frizz into sections.                 


it was amazing how fast it thickened up just by  kicking the comb.. lots of loose hairs still but that is the beauty of the natural process your dreads choose there roots sections for comfort and health and individuality..

3 july

sections are defining themselves and forming loops and locing up a bit..

4 August

 

 

5 September

6 October

7 november

(switched from bs to dreadlock shampoo) that stuff

is great!

This is awesome! I recently started mine using backcombing, but now I kind of wish I had just let them form themselves. Your hair looks really cool. It has lots of character (:

thanks you sooooo much for posting this, I have the same hair type and I was convinced that there's no way it could dread or that it would be ages before I see any progress, and your timeline has totally inspired me!! its just what I needed to see :)  I already backcombed my hair into sections and was going to crochet til this site scared me off of it, so we'll see how things go for my baby fine straight hair :/

Comment by oostan heimach on January 29, 2012 at 9:24am
