Pretty new to having dreads, but I love them. I'm currently in my third month and so far so good. I gotta get more pictures taken. When I first started my dreads I had twisted them into what ever groups I thought looked good but twists aren't locks so they of course began falling apart like crazy and I was re twisting them twice a day. Lol what a dummy right? So after about two weeks of that routine I stopped messing with it. I'm not into doing my hair at the best of times, so I really didn't dig all that crap I was doing to it. After I left it alone man, it regrouped itself all over my head and started doing its thing. 2 months and 2 weeks later I have pretty well defined dreads in my hair. I'm really excited about having my hair like this because I've always kind of struggled with my hair. Like my hair never really represented me just right. Now I feel like it does so I'm really juiced about it man. So now it's just a waiting game, waiting on my current dreads to mature and waiting for that one rouge patch of hair that it's doing anything to make it's move.
