I've done this on another forum, and decided to do so here as well. I'll warn you, this is moderately picture heavy, and full of craziness. Also, a number of the pictures were taken from various sources (or with crappy webcams) so they will vary a bit in size and quality.

Without further hesitation, here is my timeline.

Pre-Dreads (not right before, but you get the point):
Photobucket

Right after the t&r:

3 months (with blue wraps!):

4 months (and a shot of the back of my head at the time):

Almost 6 months:

6.5 months :

back of my head 6.5 months 2.26.10

7 months:
7 months of dready goodness

7.5 months:

9 months (acrylic rainbow wraps were added to break up the monotony. Pictures also include one of my favorite tams!):

A more clear picture from 9 months:

11 Months pulled up, and 11 months when left down (feel free to marvel at that gorgeous piece of labradorite in my ears xP):

Right before 11 months

Pictures taken on 8/13/10, they've finally hit a year old! Happy birthday dreads! Just dyed with brown black, so they're hard to see; I'm hoping that when the dye fades it'll be closer to my natural hair color (as close as one can get with a boxed dye) and won't be so awkward and obvious. I adore the red, but the upkeep is just too much! Anyhow, here are a few pictures! I'll try and take a few more in better lighting next time...

13.5 months! I hope you guys can see some change, as these past few months have felt really discouraging for me... I don't feel like I'm seeing much if any progress. Then again, somehow I had it in my mind that when 1 year hits your dreads become miraculously epic... and that's not what's happened. Kind of a 'can't see the forest for the trees' sort of thing... Oh well, enjoy!

Still hoping for a bit of length here before too long... this short hair thing is killing me!

2 years, 8 months: THEY'RE GROWING!!! :D

This is a shot of them from the back...

^ And this is what they look like when I'm holding them back with my crocheted headband/panta thingy.

Thanks for viewing! Comments and feedback are always appreciated!

I've used both wool and acrylic thread. The wool (which is what the blue string is in month 3) was very quickly eaten by my dreads, and so couldn't stay in as long. The rainbow thread is acrylic, Red Heart's Fiesta color print. It's one of my favorite accent yarns, and since it's acrylic, it hardly ever tries to merge with my dreads. I usually get bored with wraps pretty quickly though, my last set was only in for a few days before I took them out again.Lisa McRae said:

More or less. My hair is actually slightly curly, but when it's long it stays mostly straight with a little wave. I was obsessive about keeping my hair absolutely perfect (no heat styling, always washed/rinsed with cold water for shine and health, dyeing only every few months with more natural dyes, and always conditioned to silky perfection) before dreading, but even so California was/is soo drying that my ends were splitting and breaking off (never had that problem before Cali). I figured that dreading my hair was just one more thing that I could do to keep it healthy...plus, I've always wanted to have hair long enough to cover my breasts when nude, and dreads seem to be the perfect way to achieve that. Sure, I had other reasons for dreading, but those are the aesthetic ones.Sister Rags said:
Wonderful, Faelwynn! It looks like your hair is pretty straight, right - people who come on here and ask if straight hair will dread just need to see your pics.
