I used to post on this site when I was a teenager but I had to take my dreadlocks out. Now they are back and I am back.
My dreadlocks are only about 2 - 3 months old, but I am such a self conscious person... Some days I get so down because of how the back of my hair looks.
I was always under the impression that my hair was just not suited for dreadlocks, because when I tried to do it myself I couldn't section it properly and it always showed way too much scalp for my liking. However, my boyfriend sectioned these for me and they are the nicest ones I have ever managed to get.
They are done with twist and rip at first, and then I have left them to do their own thing, only washing and seperating.
I know a lot of people post questions like this, but I feel like mine is so icky looking.
Granted these photos are taken in the bathroom in the bright lights, so I may have made it look worse than it is. But, I just absolutely hate the 'gappyness' of my dreadlocks at the back. They always seem so far apart and just way too much scalp showing. I wish it looked nice and full like a lot of pictures I see online...
I'll attach the photos.
Will they get thicker and fill in? Will you always be able to see this much scalp in the light?
Thank you for your time!
