Oh wow. You have identical hair to me. I find that both awesome and freaky, haha,
I started dreadlocking at about the same length as you did as well.
It has been around a year now but I am still not seeing much progress in the back.
Thank you! Yes, curly hair helps a lot and now I am thankful for having curls When I was young I hated my hair texture a lot. Well, things change over time...
Wow, your hair is curly! The curls will help with the locking process... stick with it, your locks will look amazing!
