Ok, hold on a moment, people. While I hear what you are all saying, this site generally does advise against using locticians, there is no need to be so mean and negative. Is it possible that you could be a loctician that helps people start their dreads off right? Maybe help people section their hair and do some T&R-ing and educating them on how to best take care of their budding locs? I am not sure one could make a good living out of doing just this, but there is no harm in educating yourself and helping others do their locs in a good and healthy way. After all, we could argue that SE is a loctician because he is helping all of us with our locs as well.
I say to Dia Grant, good on you! The best thing you can do is look around this site, find out what is best to do and what is important not to do and see where you can take that information. Don't feel that being a good loctician means that you HAVE to give people dreads the "salon" way!
See what I mean by the blunted tips though in the 3 month pic? Does it look horrible?
the 1 section in the 1 month pic looks huge
ill be the first to commend you on a well brought together site with alot of information , information that best decribes wut methods are and how they have affected dreads..
i also commend you on how you patiently answer some of the same fuckin question at least 100 times a month..that could easly be found if new users would just fuckin use the search..
i totally understand and dont hold it against you u ifwana flip out on sum of thees maggots..haha
ur awesome SR..
thank you for dreadlockssite i dnt have the patients
I'm a little jealous - I'm heading into my 4th month and mine don't look nearly as tight as yours do! Of course my hair is much shorter than yours, but still - I've got loose hairs everywhere!
Your hair looks great - I think you are on a great track! I hope mine catches up soon! Can't wait to see more pictures as you continue on in your journey!

The last two pictures came after washing. Every time I washed the palm rolling would come out. So I decided recently to test not rolling them daily. Plus I like reading more than looking in the mirror.
Thanks for the good word. : )
the dreads look amazing tho
they already got charachter all your attempys to remove it failed so no harm done just wasted time and effort
My dreads are also short and the front ones don't fit behind my ears either. I have put a number of beads in around my face to keep the dreads (and loose hair) off my face and it is much less annoying! Also I wear a loose cloth wrap around them - like a very wide hair-band during the day to keep everything off my face while I'm at work. I've been having good luck with this, my only complaint is that I have a whole lot of loose hairs around my hair line around my face - but I've seen on here that the hair around your hair line is typically the last to dread, so I just keep putting them back into their beads and wearing my wrap-thing.
i alwats got some in the frint from pushin em back theyre extra slow to dread
but all around the hairline tends to be the last to dread
that lil pointy tail like spot in the back really excited me when it finaly dreaded and the funny thing is altho that points small amnd all it seems to pop new dreads around there semi often
almost like everytime it dreaded into a dread a new crop of loose hair started and dreaded under it
do u push yours behind your ears alot? im sure thats slowin it too
like my beard congoing is going slow cause they always get caught up in the head dreads and pulled unintentionaly
