I've had my dreads for a little over a year, and although most of them are hardened and staying put nicely, the left backside of my head is continuing to be a big pain in the ass. Although some of the hair is dreaded properly, there's a strip of hair that just WON'T stay together, no matter what I do. I'm guessing it's just not doable on my own... but here's my question:
Should I just backcomb the hell out of the hair and crochet them into other existing dreads? I've thought about backcombing like crazy and sewing them together tight, but I'm scared to venture into those waters! The hair that is dreaded is about 7inches long, but the "normal" hair is somewhat shorter because of breakage in the past :( They're pretty skinny dreads, some of them are skinnier than a pencil, but some of them are the width of a pinky finger.
various dread pictures, and also a few random pictures of things i had to photograph. i saw the sun for the first time today in eight days- it hasn't stopped raining. so there are some pictures of that, too :)
