Natural dreadlocks, from day 0

TashTash: @aquaguy - Thankyou 😊 How long have you been going for? I saw your photos in your forum post and I can see a couple well developed looking dreads in there. I have good sections but my tangles are loose, like I could easily pull them apart (hence why I had to tell my Mam to stop playing with them 😂) the front of my hair will start to section itself up and I’ll get excited and then in a day or two it looks like I’ve brushed it 🤦🏻♀️ It’s still progress though, if it knots and unknots eventually it’ll knot in a way that it won’t be able to come undone! Just don’t get discouraged, your hair will look awesome in time 😊
That will happen for a while yet, once it stops untangling and re-knotting you’ll quickly notice locs forming, and fringes quite often tend to be the last to dreadlock, and haha my Nan sometimes does that with my hair too.
I stopped brushing bothering to comb it about 7-8 months, not sure exactly. I thought they would progress a lot quicker when I started but I was so scared of unknotting any tiny knots I was shying away from washing my hair too often which just made it greasy and less likely to dreadlock haha, but I learned that it will be constantly unknotting and knotting for ages so since I stopped caring about that it really started to progress.
I actually have TnR’ed a couple because I wanted to experiment but kind of wished I’d have left it alone.
