My dreadlocks are five months old today!
This is good, because they need very little maintenance at this stage.
I am still working my crochet hook on any dreads that have a lot of loose hair and doing a bit of clockwise rubbing.
But maintenance has reached a minimum, and once I get the rest crocheted in, I will be good to go.
In fact, most have locked up and I have only a few skinny ones that haven’t, but I am working to combine them together, which will speed their progress.
It is said that you haven’t truly experienced real dreadlocks until you have had them for a year.
By that stage they are fully locked and need only very little to no maintenance at all.
Six months is halfway there, but from then on out, there isn’t a great deal to do to them either, all that hard work of the first six months has paid off and the dreads are locked and getting tighter by the week.
I have looked forward to that big six month milestone since my journey began, and now, at five months, I am so close.
