three week old nublets

So, after the first little while after the initial dreading all I did was spray some sea salt solution on my hair. I think about twice. And I applied aloe vera gel twice. My hair got droopy and flat. A few days ago I told my boyfriend I was going to the washroom and emerged three hours later. Anyways, here's the dealio:

Those three pictures make it most apparent how much length I lost, at least in my opinion. And these babies are free of wax and now aloe vera gel and saline solution. It makes me not want to touch my dreads because of how my hands feel afterwards.
Though even the "before" pictures were a week before I changed my hair a little. Before the fixing they looked almost like undreaded hair in some respects. I also got rid of a lot of weak spots in the process.

Hi :)

I have this friend, and she can't stop doubting. The sides of her head are shaven, and she thinks it'll look awefull with dreads. No matter what I say, she just doesn't believe me that it would look finger-burning-hot!

So, help me convince her, and show me your dreadhawks and anything like that. Yeah, you too Lish!

Thanks, I love you guys!
