So I started my dreads back in June on my birthday (the 24th), and they are 84 days old today. That's twelve weeks tomorrow, but not three months until the 24th...math was never my strong suit. :)
Anyway, they're doing amazingly, and the ones at my nape are finally staying in after falling out four times from being too darn short to handle washing (i'm a pretty vigorous washer when i do wash them...dandruff...).
Speaking of dandruff, i'm dreading (ha! pun!) my usual winter white cap, but hopefully since i'm down to washing like every ten to fourteen days it won't be so bad? *crosses fingers*
Here's what they looked like when i started them and finished crocheting (note tired eyes and crochet hook in mouth...).
