I'm Steven from Oviedo, FL, a city outside of the eastern part of Orlando. I had two of my friends put dreadlocks in my hair when I was a senior in high school, but only kept them in for about two weeks. My girlfriend wouldn't go to prom with me if I kept them in. Which sucked because I was in love with them. I know, a little whipped, but it's the past. NOW, 3 years later, I decided to get dreads put into my hair again but by a girlfriend who was ALL FOR the idea. I've had them for 4 months on the 17th of May. TOMORROW! I had perfectly straight hair, and used the backcomb method. I started out using a little wax here and there, but after reading posts on this site, I definitely discontinued the use of that crap. I started out with little rubberbands on the tips and roots for the first month and then took those off. At first I was upset cause of all the loose hair but then I really started growing on it and it looks wicked cool. I surf every chance I get, so all the salt water and wind is definitely helping.
So now that I've introduced myself, I was just wondering if some people can view my photos that I took the other day, and let me know if you think that my dreads are coming along good for being 4 months old. I'm alway questioning whether they are turning out ok, and if they are doing things properly. So I guess if you can give me some feedback, it'd be really appreciated. All feedback is useful so send it to me!
