ever since i stopped brushing my hair five years ago, i've been separating it into really small dreadlocks ( Collapse )
, and then as they formed i've been slowly combining them together ( Collapse )
first i tied them together to let the roots form as one, but the dreads themselves did not stay together. so i interweaved them using a tapestry needle ( Collapse )
i don't have a super good picture but you can see the tips i've done at the same time, and some of the texture in the dreads i've combined...
i was reading the memories about combining dreadlocks, and i've seen the method i use (interweaving them like in the drawings in this post
) and people mention that the dreads will never completely fusion... well here is a picture of my hair a couple of months later ( Collapse )
it is still apparent... especially on the right side of the picture you can see them... but most of it is just blended in.
and this is a year and a half later... ( Collapse )
nothing shows, apart from this little tip... but look at the fat ones, they're completely integrated :)
since then i've been doing some more fusionning on my 4 to 5 year old dreadlocks, and most of it is already blended in... as you can see in my ( Collapse )
... most of the dreadlocks you see in there are a combination of at least two or three dreadlocks from when they were originally made... i don't know if this works only for the thinner dreadlocks, but i plan on doing some more fusionning in the near future until they reach a size that i am satisfied with, so i'll keep you guys updated. :)
(i hope those lj-cuts work properly)
