My first set (four years ago!)
Second set, right before I cut them. I dyed this set a lot.
The insides of my cut off dreads!
1.5 years later, back combing. I left the bangs undreaded, but I've been slowly dreading them. I think I'll leave the little bit that's left undreaded. I stopped brushing my hair three months before I backcombed, I found this helped a lot with sectioning.
And here they are today after my deep clean! Some of my beads are missing, I took them out because they are wood and I was worried the deep clean would wreck them.
This dread is crazy. I tried to straighten it out a few times and it keeps going back to this, so I've given up.
I had an undercut while I was growing my hair. If I don't shave the undersides of my hair it looks very mullet. I'm letting it grow out now, and I've tried dreading it but it's not long enough, the dreads keep falling out.
I did that thing where you lean your head back and take a pic to get an idea of what your dreads will look like in the future. I'm pretty excited
Compared to now.
