My 3 month update


Introduce Yourself

They look great! I started mine on May 12, using the freeform, organic method. We share birthdays :-) I didn't get my first lock until the end of June, and the top/front part has gone pretty quickly since. The back portion is still hanging loose, so to speak. Look forward to seeing how they progress!

Dread Maintenance

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

My hair doesn't dread!


Dreading Methods

Hi Emilie! I can sympathize :-) I committed to locks mid-May. It took 6 weeks for them to start knotting up, even. It'll happen :-) Maybe try washing your hair more frequently and use cold water--that REALLY helped turn my knots into locks.AND not all of my hair has even started to knot up yet! And its been three months! I have dreads on top that have long, straight tales, and the bottom third portion of my hair is just barely starting to form knots. I call the style "the anti-mullet: party at the front, business at the back" :-) it wouldn't be so bad except the untangled hair is past my shoulders and the new dreads are WILD and stick out all over the place lol! They're a hot mess right now.Consequently, for work, (I'm a high school art teacher) I wear a loose band around my wild medusa locks and put the unlocked hair in a bun.The texture of my straight hair is definitely thicker than my locked hair. That just means its taking longer to get on board. I had really nice locks about 10 years ago and they formed in a similar way. So, I think patience and frequent washing (every other day) is the way to go.BTW--baking soda won't give you the same "feel" shampoo does. It and the apple cider vinegar really will work.I used a special lock forming shampoo because I thought it would speed things up but no. Best wishes and knotty vibes your way!!!
