Natural Surrender Pics

Ie: strong natural and healthy 🐥
I definitely felt this was the right thing to do.
This video that gave me a lot of inspiration (and this website too) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcBca-rCF18
Wanted to share some pics for education purposes. they were created mid nov 2018 with backcomb/crochet.
As SE knows some of the back sections were huge. I mentioned in an earlier post that one of them was wovened really oddly (image 4,5,7) and I felt discouraged that it would ever feel normal.
I also cut into some of them and the dandruff was gradually working it's way up (how could I have prevented this?).
I now plan to nourish my scalp and only rub in circular motions to encourage natural dreading and sectioning (but I only have fine caucasian hair).
Thanks for all the info and knowledge shared on this site!
Maybe I should just re-do the sections that are a bit off and twist and rip them. with work I don't think I could get away with having freeform in the early stages.
Perhaps by combing out and starting over (twist and ripping the massive sections) I could have the best of both worlds. Mature looking for work and some twist and rips for variation although I would love to go freeform all the way.
I was wondering, does the possible permanent damage from crochet generally apply to hair strands? If so, i’m prepared to shave my head and completely start over.
If I had my hair tied up for work during the messy phase of freeform/semi, could that speed up the locking process?
One of the baby dreads the loctician made is really odd. It's flat at the root then it bends upwards then straight again, it feels totally unnatural and I think it would be look weird if allowed to mature.
I feel that by going natty, the sections would be so much better.
I had about 9 inches of straight fine hair when I got them backcombed, tbh I regret doing it.
