3 months in and looking crazy!
5 month update
The crown of my head is doing really well. I am still seeing little to no progress with my back/bottom/underneath sections of hair. I am becoming more excited with how the top dreads are coming along, though. I will post a few pics. Please excuse my tired eyes. I am a mom.
I have lost a TON of length as well. My saving grace has been bobby pins and headbands (when I am out in public). I leave my hair down when I am home, which is pretty often- I am a stay at home mom. One of mine is 2 inches in the back. Whew! What a journey this has been.
Keep up the good work!
Everything else on my head is dreading nicely, but this bottom/back section is refusing to do anything. It is 3-4 inches longer than the rest because all of my other hair is shrinking. I was considering putting small beads in sections of my undreaded hair to maybe help the process along. What is your opinion on that, Soaring Eagle?
As always, thank you.
Thank you! I appreciate your help.
I will post a pic update soon. My dreads have tightened like crazy. Some of them are only 3 inches long now. Yikes! My friend told me yesterday that my hair looked like it wanted to "eat her face." So, needless to say- my hair is looking a bit wild. My biggest supporter is my husband and children... so that's all that matters.
Thank you for being so patient with me and all of my questions. I am wondering if this is normal? A few pieces have looped back on themselves and around 6 inches shorter.
awe awesome! The loopy stage is so fun! Looks good! :D
Hello! I hope all is well. I have a new question.
Would criss crossing some of my dreads in hemp hinder the locking process? Thank you
My hair is doing the same as yours... It will tangle a little on its own but I also can't help twisting the pieces a little. And in the back it feels like big clumps with no rhyme or reason that maybe I should pull apart. The top and front just won't do anything other than sit there. No clumps. Kind of frustrating and I can't believe my family isn't making more comments about my strange clumpy unkempt hair. :)
I'm glad that I am not alone in this. Time is our biggest helper.
