Your dreads are the epitome of dread perfection. I love that you let them come together naturally. If I would have seen more free form dreads like yours before I started my journey I would have went that route. The top half of mine is somewhat free form as my hair naturally chunks off in sections and I lightly back combed those sections to keep congoing at bay. I was scared of free form to begin with bc I personally knew someone who went that route and ended up with some huge dreads and he eventually shaved his head.
I started my dreads in feb 2017 so I'm just a little over two months in. I figured now was a good time as any to start my timeline! I will start with a before photo. I have naturally thick, wavy hair .
I started out with only the bottom half, using backcombing
Then I decided to finish off my whole head.
I haven't taken a two month photo of the bottom half yet even though I'm about 2 weeks past two months but I will update soon to show how real the shrinkage is becoming.
Hello, I was going to start a timeline but wondered if you can add pictures over time or if you have to add all pictures at once? I'm only two months in so I would want to add a new picture to the timeline every month or so.
Dread newb here 👋🏼 My dreads are a little over two months old and I'm starting to get a lot of knotting at the root. But not only in the good way. They are wanting to Congo in places. I pull them apart but a loose "web" remains. My question is do I just keep that up until they mature or do I need to separate all the hairs (clear the web completely). It doesn't really bother me as far as aesthetically but I don't want to end up with a bunch of congos. I can wait it out if I'm doing the right thing by just pulling them in opposite directions and leaving the remaining "web". I hope this made sense 😅
