Ten Months Loc Journey Update – Growing Dreads

dreadlocks 10 month updateI know I haven’t been giving regular updates on my locs journey, but here I am. It’s better to be late than never. I’ll give you a quick little update on my 10-months locs journey.

My Not So Perfect Hair Days

I have been through the frizzy locs period and the frustrations, but I am glad that I didn’t give up. My dreadlocks are growing so beautifully right now. I am amazed at how thick they have gotten over the past months. If you look at my previous post: Almost a Month Wearing Locs – My New Retwist Hairstyle, you can see the difference in the texture of my hair as well as the length.

Noticeable Changes as Dreads Mature

As your locs mature and starts to lock, you will notice some shrinkage in your hair, but as time goes by, the length will start to show.  My ends are looking so much better these days and my hair is looking more like locs.

A Word of Encouragement During Transitioning

One thing I’ve also experienced during my journey of growing dreadlocks, is that not everyone will approve of your transition, but that is another story for another post. All I can say is that I am loving my hair right now and I would encourage you to not give up. It will get better as your dreads mature, and with proper care.

Here are a few of my photos that I have taken recently. I am still dealing with the fuzz, but at least I can try new styles without worrying that my hair is going to unravel.
