My mostly neglect/ some tnr timeline! almost 3 months so far
Member Journals and Timelines
So I'm at almost 3 months. I am so very happy so far. I'm not bothered by the mess, the frizz, and i'm in love with my bumps and loops. I'm making this timeline mostly for my own record so here I go!
Pre throwing away my brush. I'd been doing bs/ acv wash for about a year at this stage and my hair was a nightmare
So 2 days in Sep 28
16 Oct ( 10 days shy of a month ) i'd done some tnr at this stage and brushed out a lot
November 10, everything had unravelled, loose hair everywhere, and unmanagable. had to separate 2 Huge uncomfortable dreads at the top back of my head. My 2 became 6
Then Nov 26. things had gone wild loops, bumps, frizz, tight spots, and having to separate like crazy. I think that's when I really let it go, and stopped trying to make them "NICE"
Now Today Dec 13 ( almost at 3 months) I have the beginnings of what I think will be MAJOR shrinkage!. I have some very tight spots now, and my dreads have their own personality. I have heard all types of criticism, my Oma tried to attack me with a comb on more than one occasion, and i have received unwanted advice about crocheting, and wax to 'fix' my dreads, But have started to get my first compliments as well from strangers. I love my babies, and can't wait to see what they do next
you can still see my remaining tnr ones. I wish I never did it
