Well I haven't cut any off. Can't bring myself to do it. I've gone this long might as well continue. In a general update my hair was getting soft and I had a lot of loose hairs. I thought maybe it was just a phase but I discovered it was the extreamly hard water. After moving to another house down the road with a water softening system my hair has tightened right up and the loose hairs are way less. Since I no longer have any loose undreaded sections I decided to count them. 55 in total. 4 of them are quite thick because I allowed them to congo but most are average sized and a couple are thin.

I just realized I didn't put a one year update! It's so hard to believe it's been that long. I've grown so much as a person since starting this journey. Not just because of dreads obviously but this year has been one of self discovery, personal growth and individuality. I've gone from a home bound, scared individual in a crappy job to this. I quit my job and am now traveling the US with my two cats using the WWOOF program. I'm happier and more confident than I've ever been. 

My my dreads are not what I had envisioned at all. I wanted thin wispy ended dreads with a few kinks and what do I have? Chunky, bumpy, flat ended dreads. But you know what? That's ok. They are uniquely me and mine.

Unfortunately no. I'm hoping I can next year. This year just didn't pan out in that direction.

I've separated a couple more large forked dreads. Everything is still going well. Though I'm still surprised that I have to separate after basically every shower. 

So another question. What carrier do you use for your essential oils?

Little update. Sadly I've lost almost all my wispy tips. They are all flat and rounded now. Several things have been different, the shower is hot instead of cold hose water, I'm out of liquid shampoo, also I've been pretty neglectful and only washing once a week or a couple days over. When it's cold and you're showering outside you tend to push hair washing off. 

My new hair is finding its way into totally new dreads between the established ones. Not sure of my current total but I'm sure its more than 55 now.
