yeah. I was actually having an afterthought that once again, in a different way, we have something in common now...those few older dreads amidst a new set. so...yeah, gonna be interested how ...but wait, you are doing t&r again? anyway, it's cool. best wishes! and thanks, i'm pretty good too. <3
Did you get rid of some dreadies too? Or do you have older ones along with your current set? And yes, I had wanted to do all backcombing this time, but my hair just didn't really take to it as well as I had thought! Maybe I was doing it wrong, I'm not sure.
Or do you have older ones along with your current set?
mostly that, but I did comb out a few, because I'm doing a partial set (like the lower half), and so i took out a few upper ones. (it was really sad, but it's more practical this way)
yeah, t&r is so easy to do. i mean, backcombing is too, but maybe it works better for different types or...or from doing it wrong. i tried like every method at one point haha but i think i WAS doing backcomb wrong, like I wasn't backcombing over and over one small section enough for the knots to really form deep. But, (surprise surprise) I have to say LazyDreads has a great instructional video for this.
Oh ok! I'm sure the partial looks great and lazydreads has great instructionals for everything I think haha. I ended up not minding doing TnR again, I'm not crazy about the braided look for a while but at least I know I like the texture I end up with with that method
I just love your timeline. Seeing all your stages is encouraging and now you're starting over!! I understand that need for a fresh start.. I have frequently changed my hair in the past and now my dreads are attempting to teach me patience. Thank you for posting so many pics and I look forward to following your new journey!
It's a great timeline even with the restart. All your comments throughout the photos of it not looking like you had dreads... yes you did! We're always the most critical about our own progress though. Enjoy the second set!

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.
