my prblem was this. I had enough for 2 big dreads at the front either side of my part, but there was a big triangular section of fluffy baby hair that was too weedy for its own dread - too big to let loose.
So looking closely at http://www.compunction.org/hair/index.html and the memories and then I dived in!
Firstly i sectioned off the bits that would be dreads in a short while, and then made a mini dread out of the fluff:-
Thats me making a mini dread.
then when the mini-dread was backcombed adequately, I took a paintbrush (used this as it has a tapered handle) and poked it down the momma dread i wanted the baby to...mate with.
then i threaded the baby dread's end onto a big eye needle, stuck the needle into the end of the brushes sable and pulled it through!
I know my dreads are young to be fucked with, but Im willing to risk it. plus I think I did the combining very well and gave the new dreads a really good palmroll after.
Next up I dreaded my bangs. MAN im better at backcombing now!
i like it much more this way, and as my bangs are shorter than the bulk of my hair I should have a nice dreaded rachel cut going on.
Sorry the pics are blurry - but I hope you enjoyed and found it informative!!
