As my introduction thread discusses, I started my dreads with a harmful technique, interlocking. This journal, at least at the moment will be focused on my dreadlock updates, hopefully on a month to month basis. As of today, they are 3 years 7 months old. The photos I have included are of the locks as they are, and of the natural dreads I have had forming. although one doesn't really seem to be that far along. I may also post photos as my beard grows longer and longer (if anyone would be interested in beard updates, LOL - still debating about letting it lock up, will be going to a 'barber spa' in the next week to see what advice they have about helping my beard along...I kinda doubt they'll have anything useful, but it is worth at least a shot, I guess, as beards are their speciality, and maybe they'll have a way I can make it look 'presentable' without sacrificing my goal of embracing the natural state (the inner renunciate if you will....does sound a little contradictory in my head)...it feels like a long shot...but it's fulfilling a holiday gift that I was given, so it won't cost my anything, as far as I know, haha) ...I do want to note that I think one or two of these photos I posted might be duplicates, sorry about that.
