Thin, fine, slightly curly hair and my 4 month update
Member Journals and Timelines
😂😂😂 they really are though
Hello all! It's been an ENTIRE 4 months since I started my journey! Time is zipping by! I've lost a ridiculous amount of length (check my gallery and videos for progress updates)...I have little bitty dreads now. Some are super tight to the scalp already! Most of them are getting VERY solid.
First, I want to say: this journey has been amazing. Don't get me wrong, there are ups downs and all-arounds....but my oh my, I've learned so much about myself - good and bad - and I've grown. This journey has really helped me in so many ways....it is 100% worth it. It's beautiful.
Second, I want to discuss my experience with my hair type so far....because this is what I was looking for and couldn't find much info on. I have very fine hair, slightly curly, and not a whole lot of it - medication has caused some hair loss. As of 4 months, my dreads have been knotting VERY fast. I think my fine hair just intertwines easily. However, I have lost a ridiculous amount of length. I'm guessing it's because fine hair would take more hair to fill in the same amount of space. Anywho, I went from slightly below the shoulder to a short granny look 😂😂😂
Personally, I'm okay with it. I know it will grown in time. I would've rather had a warning, because I've lost like 85% of my length....but it's all good for real. So. Cheers and let the journey continue. 💙
Lol I wear fun bandannas. I tie them loose. It keeps me covered on the days I really just don't want the attention.
I second that.
Mine took to twist and rip really well. I'm almost to 3 months, will add an update here soon...but they're basically dreaded. I have finger-length dreadies all over.
I have to separate every day too.... I'm actually on vacation at the beach right now and I had to rip a few apart last night cuz they slipped by my separating and got HUGE....I was shocked at how much they had locked together already.....I actually did something to the tendon in my hand trying to separate it, no joke. It sounded like I ripped something when it happened 😳
