Yeah, I remember cammy's timeline that one side shrinkage too. Hehe But hey at least you are making progress! And while mine aren't one sided, I DO have some hair more straight than others...I mean, significant like that. Like I have patches of really knottyness and patches of absolutely no knots, so it is perfectly normal, but we can understand and relate to the annoyances.
I think, your hair reminds me of my own hair. Your hair are scandinavian/fine right? Did you dread your bangs? And how many dreads do you have? :)
Thank you! Yes, very fine, thin hair. I did try to dread my bangs, twice, actually! But they have fallen out both times so I'm just letting them do their thing. I had 37 when we started them! How long have you been dreading yours?
After your comment on my timeline i just had to come check yours out!! I think (in my opinion) why you are seeing so much craziness is because of how loosly tnr'd they were originally done. Plus with pretty large sections. I have a few underneath the sides of my face that are like that. You've given them lots of room to do their own thing, thats all. Just let em do their thing and remember to keep them separated from eachother while they are being wild i bet your outcome is going to have so much character! I try not to mess with mine too much but one thing i do is after a shower i kinda hang my head upside down and look in my body mirror and palm roll the heck outta the loopy ones to help them work into more of a cylindrical form. I dont do that every shower though..theres not always time I also use this time to separate them as they are trying to eat eachother like mad and i find it easier done when wet. I so look forward to seeing how yours turn out!
FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
