I'm Dewi and currently my dreads are 10 months old. They are my first set of dreads and i'd been wanting dreads for a long time but never got the patience to let my hair grow long and get them dreaded up..
So here is a little timeline of my dreads
Before i got my dreads i looked like this:
Babydreads, just done and put a knot in it. I have around 75 dreads here, we lost count after 12 hours of dreadmaking hell..
3 months old here.. just had maintenance done on them at that point
Then i fucked them up by bleaching and attemptign to dye them red myself
Then maintenance after 7 months again.. Yes they had bands in them but i took those out. My dreads were severly messed up due to me not being able to work on them and the whole bleaching process..
Then I got them dyed really red this time..
And now at 10 months..
they heavily need maintenance done again.. i have a lot of loose short hairs on my scalp because of the last time. So i wear a bandana most of the time until i can either manage to do it myself or find someone to do it for me..
