My dreads 13 years natural

Longest one is down to my knee but most over waist length.  It's been a great journey so far.  Zero has been done apart from just leaving my hair to do its thing and I wash it with hot water by letting it soak for 10 mins then rinse and drying naturally once a week.  I'm lucky that my hair isn't greasy and I don't have any skin problems...maybe the Ital diet works better than I thought :) My dreads are mainly quite thick which I was surprised at but that's what I love about them the most.  I've gone through many hats over the years but the hatafaya hats from a great craftswoman in France has been my go to for a long while.  Anyway here's the best pics I could muster at the moment, never been a selfie person.  Peace and love.

those are probably the most incredible set I've ever seen, love the wrapped up turban-like look!

WOW! Those are some incredible locs.  Love the wrapped up pic.  Just curious, how long do they take to dry?  I know mine are pretty basic sized like from chopstick thickness to fat magic marker thickness (the ones in the front are thinner) & they take most of a day to fully dry if not more.

Thanks! I always wash first thing in the morning when I do it, dab them with a towel to stop them dripping a lot and leave them loose to dry.  They are normally dry before I go to bed ( I do it at the weekend so am up longer, like easily over 12 hours ).  I check them to see if there's any mould but genuinely never found any.

That’s awesome & they look amazing.  I do mine on the weekends too.  I always worry about mold because I live in NYC and it’s humid here.  I keep a bottle of the knot rot but in my 3 years have not needed it either.
