My two strand twist timeline started November 2011

Well, I thought I would try to help out a bit by making my own timeline on here. I have not seen many things on this site talking about two strand twists as the beginning method for dreading so hopefully this timeline will be enough to illustrate the process a bit.

I have not used any type of product on my hair besides the baking soda and apple cider vinegar combo mostly although i did try using only dish soap for a while. Anyway, I switched back to the bs/acv in the end and have had nothing but smiles since then :). My hair was initially twisted without any type of product in it (just out of luck I guess since I did not know much about dreading at the time) and all I have ever really done is separate. I did try re-twisting three of them for a while (like once a week) but those three became ridiculously thin at the bases and I just cut them off.

This is me without dreads:

Then this is me with my twists at first (for some reason I look pretty serious here lol:) ):

Here, they were starting to grow out a bit (like four months I think):

Here I am at the moment (current profile pic). It has been about 8 months so far.:

Sorry if it is a bit short right now; I'll definitely be updating it more (maybe bi-weekly or so) from now on.

Well, I suppose it is about time for me to update this timeline a bit so I'll add these pics for now as well some pictures i found from earlier on:

(BTW, so far it has been officially 9 months for me since I began early in November last year.)

My hair got a little bit lighter in spots after spending about two weeks in the sun in Belize so it has changed quite a bit in color I think.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, it has now been about ten months since I started so I suppose it's time for another update! :)

They are starting to lengthen faster finally!!

That's all for now folks! :)

Guess it's high time I threw in some more updates here, so:

me at 14months

me at 16 months

me at 17 months

me at 18 months (started lightening my hair)

Current status (19 months!). Much lighter now.

Looking forward to more changes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE!

20 months

21 months

@DemeterGray

Totally glad you made this discussion too. Honestly I had not really thought about my specific reason for dreading until now.

I guess I just have always wanted to have locks since I met my stepfather. He's never had dreads but since I was two, he has always loved them and has a passion for reggae music and stuff. Funny thing is that I grew up (although I'm only 17) loving dreads but disliking reggae.

Go figure...

change of mind and heart!


Introduce Yourself

Ive had my locks for about 6 months now I think and they are just now beginning to show some real progress. I started off with two strand twists (without any products in them, just twisted hair) in November. They seem to losen up a ton for a while and then all of a sudden they stop looking like twists and start to really dread together.

Personally, I wouldn't dare to use pomade since that is what I used when I had only twists last year before november (I used it because I was told that it would help to KEEP MY HAIR FROM TURNING INTO DREADS).
