Nice, your hair is dreading very fast and it seems like that your tips will blunt naturally like mine did, too. I don't care much about that, some want their tips to unblunted because of the longer drying time with blunted ones. I let mine do what they want...

@peaceful-passer Thank You!

@frankster I was thinking the same thing. The first one that started forming which is that blonde chunk in back seems like it will be a blunted end, but I'm not sure, it seems to be changing shape a little. I don't really want the blunted ends for the water factor but, I'm letting this be totally natural so what happens happens 😃

@soaring-eagle it seems like the part down the middle is already practically nonexistant! 👍

I couldn't imagine having my styled dreads still, just knowing what a huge difference it is from going natural. My roots were constantly getting tighter and skinnier after showering and several areas would get sore here and there, particularly one I had right in the center up top cause it had hair going in all directions, so it would tighten and rotate to a different side every day. For a while after I found out about DLS, I thought my dreads would be fine and eventually repair themselves, as in the broken hairs would get sucked in and hidden. I didn't realize the damage was so much worse, like to the point my dreads weren't un-tightening, probably because of the wax, ugh. For months I had actually been contemplating combing out and starting fresh and healthy but I kept kidding myself that I was just happy to have dreads. People would compliment them here and there saying I had nice dreads, but just cause they were dreads didn't mean they were nice. I thought they looked like shit lol. Especially cause of my thinning cowlick. Starting over also made me have to re-dreaducate myself, because there really is a huge difference between natural and styled dreads. Now it's really easy for me to point out when someone has one or the other.

@peaceful-passer I can relate. Most of the time that I see a dreadhead they're usually the "neat" looking styled dreads. I was actually in Shoprite a few days ago though and there was a guy with natural dreads down his back. Only two other times I can recall seeing natural dreads were at the aquarium in Camden and Guitar Center in Fredericksburg VA. They were all quite admirable lol.

@soaring-eagle one of the biggest indicators of unnecessary maintenance to me is the few strands of hair that band around the dread, sort of like the band that worms have in the middle. Don't know if that's from crocheting or interlocking but I always notice those.
