Dreadlock Journey - two weeks in

So I wish I had a bit more of an update for you guys but it's really hard to section your hair by yourself, dreading is the easy bit (well that's my excuse anyway!). I now have four dreadlock as opposed to three, ha! What I really want to show is how much they have locked up!

From this (<---- click to go to my previous entry) to this...

locking up dreadlocks!

week two dreadlocks
they have shortened as well in the locking up process!

It's been fun crocheting my hair, I bring a crochet hook (1.5mm) everywhere I go and just tuck in the loose hairs when I'm bored. I don't do it excessively, maybe every few days and for no longer than ten minutes at a time. The video below shows a good technique

I know hair locks up naturally but it's fun to speed it up a bit! I'm also having no trouble washing my hair either but I imagine when my whole head is covered, in dreadlocks, it might be more tedious! I bought some residue free shampoo and I make sure to completely dry my dreads out after washing!

So my next goal is of course to make more dreadlocks (doh) and get those ends rounded up, apparently one of the hardest parts, eep!
