extensions

So my friend Will got in some trouble at his job, and had to lose the dreads.
He didn't feel like combing them out completely, so he chopped them about
2 inches from the root and combed out what was left.

He gave me the 23 severed dread-babies that could be salvaged.
The 'locked' portion of each dread is 2-3 inches,
with another 1-2 inches of loose ends.
The opposite ends are cut bluntly.

I want to use them as extensions.
I intend on using this link as reference (as per the memories).
However, I have a few questions not covered. Just curious about
other people's input, before I go MacGyver-ing my head <3

First, should I do anything to the blunt tips (of the 'extensions')? I don't want them to unravel or something,
once in my hair. Maybe try and round them off? Any ideas are welcome.

Also, while most of my dreads have loose ends, a handful are rounded tightly.
How do I "split" the end of the dreadlock, so I can weave it in with the other?
