I have very fine hair, and not much of it. To top it off, I have thinner hair at the top/front of my head. I've wanted dreads for a very long time, and my hair is finally long enough to do them. Does anyone have this same hair type? Or could I get any advice on what would work for my very fine hair?
I looked in the memories. All the people with fine hair seem to have ALOT of fine hair, so it doesn't really help me.
I have backcombed a few rows on the back of my head, about a 1/2-1" in diameter for each section of hair. They were backcombed very tight. The dreaded hair ended up being about the width of a pencil, and there was quite a bit of bald-looking area between dreads. (Like, the space between cornrows) I took them out, because I thought perhaps I should go about doing it another way.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help. Everyone's dreads are so beautiful :)
I'm a girl, if that makes any difference. It's not balding, like male pattern baldness, just very thin at the crown.
