Had my dreads originally started at a salon. I honestly didnt realize what she was doing until after she finished but she actually had taken strands of my actual hair and after backcombing ( poorly at that i might add ) she wrapped each dread with my own hair.
it looked like this in the back.
as you can see in the front i started unraveling the strand of hair that she wrapped around each dread and i somehow managed to re-backcomb the individual strands into the already poorly backcombed strands. still not a very great job. ah well, we all have to learn somehow right?
after getting all of the strands off. i regularly wore my side swept bangs like this. this is at about two weeks.
i washed them for the first time at 3 weeks and they instantly pretty much didn't look tight anymore. but i could still tell they were there :p everyone was constantly asking me why i brushed them out.
here they are at about four weeks.
for some reason i skipped picture taking on a regular basis for a bit. here's 7 weeks from the side. my hair started to look really wavy.
seven weeks again from the front.i actually really liked this stage. i thought they were cute and wavy. haha.
here's a backshot at about 7 weeks as well.
looking kind of weird @ 11 weeks. sometime in february. i'd just gotten my septum pierced!
side shot of the head in march.
march as well. i was really excited by that one dread sitting on my shoulder because it actually really "looked" like a dread . yay.
the back of my head in april. for some reason in april my hair got BONE straight. it was no longer wavy. my guess is the length was getting longer.
another shot in april
