Haven't been on in quite awhile, no internet.
But I ended up brushing out my TnR babies after a couple of weeks because I was swimming every day, they never reallydriedout completely, my mom hated them so she made me wear my hair up at all times, and quite a few just completelyunraveled. So that was a bust of a try.
But in the last week or so, I just kind of stopped brushing my hair, and I'm already seeing progress, and I'm loving it. Even with freshly conditioned hair after the first few days it wasseparating, and I've still been swimming nearly every day, and washing after I swim, and it's crazy how my hair has taken to the process this time around. I have six or seven nicely sized chunks of hair that are really getting dread-y after such a short time. All I've been doing isseparatingthe chunks of hair, swimming in the pool, washing it, and letting it do it's thing.
For the parts of my hair that don't want to dread(my top, shorter layers are still tangle free) I may TnR in a month or three, but for now, I think my hair knows what it wants, and what it's doing.

So after reading around a bit, and just pondering on how my hair works, I decided it would probably be better for me to, instead of going the neglect route, to tnr my hair. My hair is really crazy and bi-polar, and it varies from matting in the back within a few hours, to staying totally knot free for days at a time, so my hair may turn into one giant dread if I just let it go, or stay in it's naturally wavy/curly state for weeks...
Started on the tnr-ing earlier, have about a quarter to a third of my head done, and have about 13 ish so far, give or take. Some are as thick as my thumb or a quarter ish size, and I have a few in the very front, my shorter layer of bangs, are about pencil width.
I can't wait until I have my whole head done, I already love how they're turning out. I'll post pictures whenever I can, but no camera at the moment, it might be a few weeks/months. Haha
