Thank you. I cringe every time I think about my first crochet set and any time I look at pictures lol. I'm so glad I started over completely.

And now currently at about 22 months and a week. The one picture in back is to show where my hair became really thin and weak from the nasty sectioning I had done to it when I was forcing dreads, and how it's improved since then. The hair is still thinner in that area but I kept my locks nice and separate over there to fill it out a little more, and it's not anywhere near as noticeable now.

Hey, it's been a while since I've been on here and updated. Can't believe it's been like a year-year and a half or something, guess I've just been caught up in life and I don't spend much time on the internet anymore. Anyway, I have a few updates I figured it was time to post, I'm not sure the best way to post pics for comparison so I'm gonna do it the way I know lol.

This one's my 8 month update:

Thank you both! I am very happy with how they are turning out. Wish I understood how dreading works a lot sooner than I did cause I'd be further along, but you live and you learn. I'm just happy to have my own experience with disaster so that I can educate others. At the moment my most underneath locks in back are my favorite because they're the most mature. It's really cool just to watch and feel them do all this curling and shrinking, definitely makes it exciting.

4 & 1/2 month update

Finally got on here to update. Got plenty of dreads developed and a good few shrinking up nice. The dreads up top are more abundant than my last set which I'm happy about. Some of my previous dreads did re-form, but it isn't too big a deal to me because they don't affect my cowlick area. I've also become a lot better at separating and more precise with the sizes of my sections.

3+ week update

My sections have become a lot more defined and more dreads forming. Been sleeping on my right side the last few nights to keep things balanced. The front is slowly coming along now too.

Haha seriously. Only two weeks but it does feel like at least a month. The big one is almost fully formed, it's shrunk down about halfway and the rest of the length is dreading up nicely. So far it's my dreadliest one lol. Then there's these ones in pic, they're the ones I showed in my one week update. The one middle one is my favorite overall, it makes me think of like seahorse tails tangling together. I have a few in back like that too but I can't quite see them lol.

@soaring-eagle yeah, my head is like a big ball of mesh now haha. Except now it's much more sectioned, aside from the very front 😃 The bottom in back sections keeps trying to join so I feel like they'll be some of my bigger dreads, I guess cause of how I sleep but they're coming along nicely. And combing used to be such a pain, I always went little by little starting near the ends to prevent ripping hair out lol.

@peaceful-passer I agree with you there, I've always thought my hair was made to be dreaded, like I was born to have dreadlocks lol. I'm so excited to actually be doing it properly now, and equally as much, if not more, for the experience as I am for the look. It's funny because it's the only way my hair will actually look "neat, yet there'd be occasional dirty looks given to me. But the same with my hair messy as it is right now. So I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't lol. Too bad for them, I gave up on caring about what people think a long time ago 😊

I can relate to that. When I was a teenager I used to comb my hair wet all the time, I guess hoping that it would eventually stay tame and straight. Never worked lol. Which is why I originally wanted to dread but up until finding this site and researching through it I never knew how. So far the natural experience has been amazing though. It's nice and freeing to let go of the things that need not be worried about lol.
