My first knotty no seals [with pics!]

Post by Candied_Angel » Sun Jul 11, 2010 9:06 pm

I made these because I had a vision in my head of striding into work in a Grecian caftan with some knotty-no-seals in my hair. Unfortunately I haven't been able to start the caftan yet but I did manage to make these over a few days. There are 35 SEs in all black and 8 acccent SEs in black and neon blue. I'm really happy with them. I thought they would take up a whole lot of hair but as the lovely ladies in the technique board were right in that they use up less hair. All 43 dreads, being about marking pencil thick, only took up two bags of hair!

[In natural light - pardon the low lighting, it's really gloomy and I wanted to get pictures of them before I installed them.]

[The regular twisted and sealed dreads are from another set of dreads I made before this one.]

[My first try at blunt ends. I started out trying to make them with the edge of my iron but eventually sealed the ends really really tight and snipped them where I thought they should end.]

I'm thinking about making more blue accents. Hopefully I'll have pictures of the installs and the fringe I'm making to go with them. ^.^

See anything wrong with them? Anything I might need to improve on?
