Hope fully I can keep adding to this! ok... so I started my dreads 4th September 2011. I started them because I wanted to feel like myself. At the start of college I decided that I would find myself and try to accept myself for who I truly was. A new start, with a new place and no one knew who I was. Everyone at college is so accepting of me for exactly how I am and I love how everyone's different and feels comfortable in their own skin. Along the way I've been learning a lot about myself as a person, that I accept myself as who I am now, and my hair is it's natural self and is forming how it wants to form ect. and I love it I think my dreads are forming quickly! Hope people enjoy my timeline as much as I do.
3.5 months and I dyed them pink!
5 months and starting to look goood
6 Months! dyed some blue :D
7.5 months and a new colour
9 months in the sun lots of roots showing, and I decide to grow out my natural colour for a while
they're really coming along and some are so solid I can't even squish them, they're so compact. Lots of loops folding back on themselves, blunting of themselves, and shrinking. Even though as you can tell my hair has grown a lot I have not lost any length from when I started cause of shrinking! Love them, and love the journey, and I can't wait to see where it goes!
10.5 months! I have a lot of dreads that bend at right angles as you can tell, One day they should settle down though!
Edit. Wow my dreads are well over a year now, let me show you the progress since! they just keep getting better and better!
