Before getting going on the pics... I will remind this is the natural/neglect method where you wash and let dry, separate into the sections that are forming and otherwise, just leave it alone to mat into dreads on it's own. I separate normally after I wash and let it dry. It mats up like crazy after washing, or wearing my llama beret with my hair up inside it.
wet, with beads to keep sections
beads out, sections still going on
this is the back as it's drying, before separating the matted roots.
this one dread is making crazy loops and bumps. fear not it will be a normal dread as the hair mats and pulls in tighter.
my hair likes getting bumpy
more matting going on at my nape
These hand-dyed berets/tams/hats are for sale in my Etsy shop. I also do customs :)
whew... have I caught up? I hope so. I will try to have DH get some pics of the actual dreaded hair that resembles more matted sections. there's a couple of them in these pics, but they are soo hard to capture and they are all underneath.
it's going well so far. my hair is really taking to dreading. it is so amazing to feel and see the changes my hair is going through on it's path to dreadlocks.
