Adding real-hair extensions or "falls" at the root to real dreads?
thanks for your comments!!
Yeah I was thinking about that method [the looping it through a dread]... i heard that would damage the root though [splitting it]
And I also want to avoid any crocheting methods of doing this...BUT I've been through the search on here and found THIS youtube video which shows you how to make a single ended dread with a loop on the end...

and i think that would work well...just loop it over one of my dreads and thensecureit maybe by sewing it or using clips if i didn't mind it being less permanent
I think i probably should be a bit more patient as well.. :D I'm nearly four months in and theyre coming along great. it's not the thickness of the dreads I'm bothered about, it's just the fact I dont have enough hair to have as many as i'd like...i think looking through progress pictures is a good idea because i have nooo idea right now how theyre going to be TOMORROW never mind when matured...
THIS is my dreadlock idol and she just seems like one of those people with TONNES of hair, ive seen photos of her before she had dreads as well. Since my hair has always been stubbornly fine i just get the feeling my hair will never look like this without a bit of help but I'll probably be waiting a few more months before investing in some extensions
thanks for your help.

i wanted some bulk to mine so i added a few felty dreads in a brown colour which worked ok
just buy some merino wool and making them is simple, i'm not sure about adding hair sorry and wouldnt you have to use a crochet hook to put it in which would weaken it at the root?? you could always make some from synthetic hair and add that in to the underneath to put it in you make it teice as long as your hair make a hole in the root of your dead and just put it through the hole i'm sure you could make some from hair and do it that way i'm sorry if this is no help
but your hair will thicken!! if you've not been dreading long it's worth your time just to wait a couple of months if you look through members old pictures to now you can see how they change, the best thing to do would be to give them time
