!! TAKING THE PLUNGE !!
i agree exactly, expecting dreads to be maintained in the early stages is pretty unrealistic. it's a process. you're either all in or should just wait until ready.

Hi, I'm a woman doing neglect and wouldn't have it any other way. If you want "maintained" dreads, you're kind of out of luck. Dreads are wild, beautiful, and free <3.
In my understanding, TnR comes undone anyway and mainly helps with sectioning. Sectioning will naturally occur with neglect as would be best with your hair anyway.
Part of my dreading journey is learning to let go a little (or a lot some days. Haha), have patience and trust the process.
I hope you find the path best for you.
