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):
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 :
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):
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!
