Hello all! If you haven't guessed from the subject line, I'm new to the site. I found it a few months back and loved how everyone was so informative, kind and inspiring. My journey began almost 6 1/2 months ago with the backcomb method. I originally have pretty thick, curly hair, but I relaxed it a few years back which helped tame it down a bit. So far it has been what seems to be the "typical" journey of ups and downs. As you will see in the pictures, my hair experienced MAJOR shrinkage. It's been quite an adjustment from transitioning from long hair to shorter hair but overall, I love my dread babies and cannot wait to see what they look like at one year
Month 3 - cue the shrinkage
When I could still fit them in a ponytail!
Month 7 Not too much has changed since month six. There's a ton of loose hair and a lot of the ends are starting to blunt on their own :).
Month 8 All the crazy loops are starting to get engulfed in the dread.
Hey all! Use this shout box to post quick messages.

Dreadlocks Co.: Anyone thought of becoming a dreadloctician fulltime? I found some awesome courses on getting certified at http://divinedreadlocks.com/

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.
