So, about a week ago I created a set of dreadlocks out of kanekalon hair, and then I (methodically and painstakingly .. might I add that it took FORTY-EIGHT HOURS?!)extended my dreads! They were only about 3 weeks old at the time, but as I had created my set with the backcomb, then crochet, method, I figure that they were tight enough to handle the extensions. My real dreads are about 6 inches long themselves, and with the extensions, they now reach to about boob length. Now, I know that the kanekalon hair won't last forever. Someone told me that they will eventually fall out, because they won't mat up as my real hair would? I haven't yet had a problem, as I crocheted them in very tightly, and I really don't fear that they're going to fall out, but she kind of made me worry. I searched the memories, and I hate to ask, haha, because I know how you guys direct the majority of questions to the memories, but I really scoured them and didn't find what I was looking for. How long can kanekalon hair extension dreads last in real dreads?
Anyways, I love my dreads so much! I lurked for such a long time .. two years or so, gathering information, haha, and I love this community. I've been directing anyone who asks me questions about starting their own set to this place.
During the process .. I call this "pineapple head!"
The day after I completed them!
Being foolish, haha
Trying to get a shot from the back
(I had my hair back in a "half pony" thing, but you can hardly tell)
Thanks for looking, namaste!
