thank you so much Ixchel
wow such a full head of awesome dreads. Amazing, i love it.
I started mine this thick. I only let 2 of them congo....but i wouldn't consider them congos really. The dreads directly above my ears...one dread on each side was starting to thin a bit at the root. I wrapped a baby dread with the mature dread. The wraps felt really weird over my ears, but i kept them on for a couple of months just to encourage them to grow together. Some of my other dreads have snatched up and swallowed baby dreads. But I am keeping a bunch of babies separated right now.
did you start out with dreads this thick or did you let a lot of them congo? i want thick locs too but my hair is knotting up in little tiny sections. i'm hoping to congo some but i haven't figured how to go about that and when.
