I've been fascinated with dreads since I was fourteen or so, and now, just one month shy of my eighteenth birthday, I feel as though I'm finally ready.
I don't want to pay a hairdresser some ridiculous amount of money, so I figure I'll just do them myself. For those of you who have done your own, how long did it take? and were you pleased with the results? (especially the ones on the back of your head) I'm terribly nervous haha
I did this when my dreads started, unfortunately.
My scalp was bugging me so much and looping them through felt so good and made them nice and tight.
I recently "took out" all of the loops, but in one or two of my dreads I have gaping holes at the roots or have formed two "mini dreads" that come together into one. They kinda look like a Y that's attached to my head, if that makes it easier to understand.
Recently, I sewed these mini-dreads together with thread.
Will this help?
Was I right to do this (sew them together, I mean, not loop them through)?
Has anyone else had similar experiences?
(I don't think I saw anything about this particular aspect of looping in the memories... if there was and I'm just being blind, then yell at me ;))
