6 months and a big smile!

Its been a while since my last post but I've been really happy with my dreads... except for the really hot days, which I suppose are few and far between in England. I went skinny-dipping in the sea to celebrate it finally feeling like summer and the day my dreads turned six months old... and I took some pictures after! 

I think they're coming on quite well and the sea water really did the trick. I was flipping my roots (I know =bad!) but I stopped when I found out the damage it can cause. I just don't really know what to do instead as I've been sort of crocheting in loose bits and palm rolling and twisting the roots and rolling them round, and well all sorts, but its not doing much except at the base of my neck where there was no problem before. I've had a search through the memories but was wondering if anyone had any fresh opinions on the matter?

I had a go at a dread scan yesterday too because all the cool kids are doing it, I obviously wasn't all that great at it though!

Please excuse no faces, I wanted to share the progress in my little dreadlings but didn't feel much like having my face showing because I guess I don't feel all that confident today due to a plethora of reasons!

For comparison's sake, these are my dreads at 2 and a half months: 

Hope that you are all well and smiley :)
