Microdreads? Maybe they're just thin. (pics)

Post by mandikat » Tue Dec 28, 2010 7:03 pm

Well, I resealed both my first and second sets (both sets just ended up too small, and I wanted my hair to be thick... I should seriously just learn how to make DEs), and installed them with a blanket stitch. My other install (which was my first) was just braided in. I think it turned out alright. Oddly enough, the first set was a set of naturals and the second set was a set of twisted.. They mingled rather well after I resealed them.

I do have problems with the front bit just looking a little too... What's the word... fake? In any case, they're a bit bulky. Not sure how to fix it at this point, so I just wear scarves along my bang/hairline... It looks cuter with the scarf anyway.

Definitely not a show-off section batch, but I think I'm pretty happy with them.

I had a friend install them, so I have a lot of hair frizzies about, around the rubber bands.. Not sure if there's a way to fix that at this point. Frizz doesn't bother me too much.

they look nice.. maybe try leaving some extra little hairs between the sections of your hair line so it looks more natural. the loose hair might help hide where the dreads beginning to be more noticeable of being dread extensions, but scarf and headbands are always the best option :D

That is REALLY clever! I hadn't thought of that.
