I've seen so many inspiring time lines here over the last year and I wanted to finally share my own. I started my dreads in December 2015 and it's been just over 1 year! I'm so happy I was patient. I love them now. I have more random photos on my Instagram if any of you are there, same username juneonesix
I started them on my own, with a few wrapped braids here and there, and then decided to go full dread-head. I did the sectioning myself, the twisting and backcombing myself as well, kind of blindly. A couple of months later I had a pro loctician in town (outside the US) help me crochet them to tidy them up.
No products were used throughout. No wax or sprays. Just a residue free shampoo and 2 sessions of crochet maintenance in the whole year.
I compiled them all in a video I hope that's okay. I love connecting with other dreadheads so please feel free to comment, ask questions, whatever.

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.
