Hello GUDU. It's been awhile. My dreads are just over 9 months old. Today I did my first deep clean! I've been washing with lush shampoo bars, squeaky green and seanik. This is my third set of dreads. The first I cut because of sectioning and starting with wax. (I found gudu about a week after starting that set) The second set was also sectioned weird, and I was washing with dr bronners which left a gross sticky residue. So I cut that set off and shaved my head. I let my hair grow out after that, about a year and a half later it was long enough to dread again. That is my current set and I'm very happy with it so far. On to pictures!

Second set, right before I cut them. I dyed this set a lot.

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.
