recently I finally decided I'm going to commit to getting my long awaited dreadies. I've wanted to do it since my freshman year and would backcomb a few in every so often but would end up conditioning and combing them out after one of my parents gave me shit about it. a couple days ago I had heard of this salon that does them pretty good so I looked up their number and asked to set up a consultation to see what method would be used and such, we set up the consultation for today at 3:30 and when I was ten minutes late(and around the corner) they called me and asked if I wanted to reschedule, instead of waiting I just asked her what way the salon usually does them. after she told me dread perm, I said nevermind I'm not to interested anymore. when I got home I starting on the TnR. seven long hours later, I finished and I love the way they turned out already even though they're not perfect or really even the same size I couldn't be more stoked, even though I know I still have a long way to go. I included a before and after picture, let me know how you think they came out for a TnR rookie haha

I wasn't trying to say they aren't as good because they aren't perfect in any way, I was just saying it kind of as a disclaimer I guess. I love the way they look and appreciate the uniqueness in each dread. the only thing I plan on doing maintenance wise is start using anti-residue shampoo and try to tighten up some of them as needed.I appreciate your concern but I'm definitely ready to endure some tough months aheadMakarov said:
They look good but I'm concerned that you won't have the heart to continue NATURALLY with your dread journey based on what you said. Perfect and same size don't go hand in hand with natural dreadlocks...I hope you enjoy your journey and I really hope you decide to go natural from here on out because your locks really do look great but they won't look great everyday. Stick with them and don't do too much to em and they will come out looking amazing.

You are off to a good start.If you haven't read the following thread, read it so that you don't get worried over what may happen as the weeks progress and your dreadlocks continue to mature.The first weeks of DreadingReading the first post is all that is really needed. Seriously you are off to a good start all that is left is to keep your hair clean and pull sections apart if you don't want any congos.
