Nicole's Dreadlock Timeline: Recovery From Crochet, Going Natural
Member Journals and Timelines
I got my Dreadlocks June 8th, 2010. I had them crocheted, only to find this website 4 days later. This is a timeline of my Dreadlocks. Recovering from crochet and going natural. They were only crocheted the initial time. I'm really hoping doing this timeline will help me resist the urge to take them all out and start over. I see a difference already, in the first week. I think.
This is Day 1. June 8th, 2010
2nd week, day 8. June 15th, 2010
Well, they are all finally out! 3 days and 7 hours later. Not fun. Anyways, my hair is now pretty much a tangly mess. We had to leave 3 of the crochet dreads in and 10 at about an inch because of the knotting. I was just losing way too much hair. :/
We did some separation after it dried, I slept on it and it knotted up again. And got all loopy. I'm hoping this is all normal or I may be starting from scratch with no hair :/
Ok. This is going totally natural. All the crochet are out.
ONE MONTH!! 30 DAYS!
44 Days. Tons of loopies andknots on the bottom layer and top, all in the back.
Day 52. Are all those knots underneath normal???
Day 190ish (I'm losing track. lol...)
