Greetings from Michigan, all! I've been scrolling through everyone's timelines feeling inspired. Sometimes I have a love/hate relationship with my locs, so I come here to feel hopeful haha. I have only recently been taking photos of my dreads for the purpose of comparison, so a lot of the beginning photos are selfies.
I first dreaded my hair with the help of a friend around two or three years ago. We did the twist and rip method. Unfortunately I just wasn't as happy with my dreads and didn't feel like they were locking up. I ended up brushing them all out and immediately regretting that decision. Fast forward to maybe 10 months ago. An ex of mine started to slowly dread the underneath of my hair. October 29 2016 I went to a professional shop in Ann Arbor and had my whole head dreaded. Here's my hair from then to now
