Question?

I have been on my natural dread journey for about 25 days now and I've noticed only half of my head and the back are really locking up well. I wash my hair with baking soda and I do occasionally but sea salt water in my hair to help dry and lock up quicker. Any advice would be greatly appreciated I new to this, but I'm doing it as naturally as possible (no back comb, wax and ect.)

25 days isnt even 1 month

evcen if u backcomb wax an d crochet they wouldnt seem too far along yet

if you have 1/2 locking up in under a month yor dreading fast as hell

add a zero ti that 25 and then see how far along they are

those are probably the sides you sleep on. sleep makes pretty good progress. you could try sleeping with a wool tam on your head or just sleep on the other side of your head.

sounds like you are having some great progress in a quick time! give it more time, the others will come along, you sound like you already doing what you need & have a good idea of what not to do. just wait :)

If you see any real progress in 25 days, you're ding just fine. Hayley said it; Whatever side you sleep on tends to progress a bit faster. If you can, you could always try to sleep on a different side. Otherwise, just give it some more time. The rest of your head will lock up on it's own. On average, it takes a year for locks to fully mature

Thanks guys I do feel really lucky to have such progress especially since my hair is so thin and straight I think its the length (27 inches). I do have a few beads in to keep them from all bunching together.

Give it time I guess I'm a lucky one but really I never brushed my hair the conditioner kept it tame. I stopped using that and regular shampoo. My hair isknottedin the middle and that is where my hair is sectioning off it is only a matter of time until the rest catches up.
