First synthetic set self-install :)

Post by juustojoki » Tue Apr 02, 2013 1:11 pm

Hellooo! A friend installed these in very well for me before, but I took them out a week later due to itchiness and lack of tea tree oil. I finally decided to get them in again and self-installed them yesterday. This time I decided not to leave a fringe out since I had a dyeing mishap recently and thought it'd be better to cover it up. I'm happy with the full install except that my forehead looks like a fuzzy orange box (I try to camouflage that :p). Oh well...
I have about 80 SE dreads in out of a set of 125. I decided to use all the lighter ones and left the darker ones out for this install. Last time I had the darkest ones. I like it both ways :)
Some of them seem to be more durable than others; I guess I wasn't as consistent as I thought with my backcombing. Next time! Grr... Anyway, I hope they don't fall apart *too* soon.

Well, here's a shot of the back with my crappy webcam.

And a shot of the front with me hiding my retarded face :D

Feel free to comment and critique any way you like. I don't get offended :) All tips appreciated!

They look beautiful! I would say it is a nicely done set, and your install looks neat and clean.

You're so classically pretty. They really suit you and you've done a great job with the install.

I was thinking the same thing on her classic beauty <3
Your install looks really neat and well done, and the dreads are nice as well!
