Dread Journey

Hey!
It's been about a month since I started my dreads and I am still super excited about this journey.  So far everything seems to be going good. My hair has started forming some good sized dreads in the back.

The only problem I'm having with it is trying to keep my front dreads from eating my bangs and each other(damn cannibals..).  I also have to seperate my dreads from each other often. I figure that's just a part of dealing with natural dreads so it's not a big deal.

Anyway. Enough of my ramblings.

I'm loving my hair so far and I can't wait till it's older and I can start putting beads in it. I already ordered some nice ones off of etsy.

2 weeks

Ok it’s just a few days shy of their two week birthday but I’ve spent most of my day off sick so I decided it was as good of a time as any to make a post about my babies.
They seem to be holding up rather well, I took a shower and just rinsed them with water when they were a week or so old. And gave them their first real washing tonight. They are really fuzzy, but looking around I know that is normal, and they are developing loopies near the root, but I am sure this is because while we back combed them pretty well we did not make them close enough to the root. Anyway pictures under the cut
