you know how sometimes you forget you have dreads because you see them every day and its just so normal?
well i always wear my hair back tied up for work, but now its down while i'm at home and i had one of those 'wow i can't believe i have dreads' moments when they fell in my face. i forget i have them, then realize, and sometimes i'm surprised! hah
so in the first few weeks of having dreads i was palm rolling and messing with the dreads right up in front waaay to much and it caused alot of breakage and thinned out the four dreads in front since i have very fine hair. now at 3 months old all of my dreads were about the same size except for the ones in front they were very thin which bugged me soo much! so last night i threaded one of the dreads into a large eyed needle and then sewed it straight up through the middle working my way through the center of the dread until it came out of the tip. then i backcomed the two tips together now you cant even tell that they were two seperate dreads. i did it with the other two thin dreads too. now instead of four thin loopy shitty dreads up front i have two nice fattys up front. they look soo much better now im soo happy.
has anyone else done this method of combining dreads? has anyone had any negative effects due to this style of combining, like the two dreads not staying together?
p.s. i will post some before and after pics as soon as i find my camera. and also are any of you dreadies from the central coast of cali?
I know my dreads are only a day old, but i really fancy the idea of felting my hair and i wondered how many months i should wait before attempting it? I imagine if i did it straight away it wouldnt hold very well.
I think putting wool in my hair is such a cool idea!
Any advice would be welcomed - thanks guys!
