I'm so glad I found this site! I had beautiful dreads about 8 years ago, and cut them off as an act of mourning and have just never felt the same since. I restarted them again on May 12, and the front and top sections are locking, shrinking, twisting like mad The back, however is taking its time I love this discussion, and find it EXTREMELY helpful in my journey!
Here I am about 6 months ago, thinking, "It's time to grow out my locks. I don't look right."
And here we are at month 3 almost to the day. In this image, the bottom half of my hair is pulled back, I do this for work (I teach high school art) and wear a loose band while I'm at school. When I'm not at school, I look like this:Hi! I'm all fuzzy and new! :-D
