This is possibly one of the cutest things I have ever seen..
Thank you Panterra! Yes they really do look like those knots. : ) Hippiegal, I just looked at your new pics. Beautiful! It looks like mine will shrink in a similar pattern to yours if they keep doing what they are doing. : )
Good description, Panterra. I was scratching my head to recall what they looked like, but you've got it. My pics are up now. As you can see, the grey is starting to creep in. Mine are developing all different lengths, yours probably will too, Kathleen.
These are beauties!!! They remind me of the intricate chinese knots that are done on silk cord...really lovely.
I look forward to seeing them! Send me a note when you do. Sometimes I miss when people post pics if I'm not online when they hit the ticker display postings. Have a good night. : )
I was going to post some at six months - mid-December - but since a few people have asked I'll toss my camera to my partner as soon as he has time to take a few pics.
I have 23 of those major loopy squiggles and mostly in the back/left side and underneath. If I pick up all of my unlooped dreads (22 of them) the longest section is only just to the top of my shoulders and the rest is shorter. It was down my back. When you see my new side pic I posted you can see how short the looped ones are compared to the others. I don't mind either anymore. I'm even going to go gray all the way I think. If anything I will use henna. Do you think every dread loops? Or do some dread without looping? I don't have the answer to that but I am curious. It would be cool if they all didn't do it so I would have all different lengths and not "just short". ; ) Hey hippiegal, when are you going to update your pics. I can't wait to see them!!
Lovely wild loops and squiggles! Do you have them all over?
"Growing our hair shorter' - LOL! But seriously, you're right, that's what's happening. The shrinkage used to freak me out - where's all my long hair gone? - but now I don't mind.
If mine do that I'll have a dread-fro']
Hahahaha! That's funny :D Yeah, have you imagined if our whole head does this in a short time we are going to look pretty different ; ) It is weird to be growing our hair shorter.
