Need help with little dreads


Help! Save My Dreads

oh jeez. i started them in prison and have been doing them myself since... i've been backcombing and since leaving state i've tried my hand at interlocked by watching youtube videos.. i had no experience or any type of access to research to start them. i just knew i wantted them and asked every single person i saw with them what they did.

sooo i backcombed, twisted, stuck jelly in them (which dried and wasn't sticky but made my hair smell great but the bees did like me! lol) but for the past two months i've been letting them just "wolf" out. i wash them now about once a week with like panteen dandruff shampoo only.

since finding your site i've planned on buying some type of good shampoo the next time we have a trip to walmart... im currently in a "rehab" program (parole insisted) so it's been mainly trial and error since. personally, i think the reason the back is so thin, about a month in a chick in prison told me the back looked fucking crazy and i had no idea since i didn't have access to a mirror. soon as we got to ground (min status housing) i was able to see how bad it looked, combed them out and lost SOOO much hair. then i boxed them out again.

i also haven't used honey or get since leaving prison back in june.

Need help with little dreads


Help! Save My Dreads

Okay so my dreads are about 8 months mature... i've got these two in the back that worry me and are holding on for dear life.. the "box" they are in is the same size as all the other ones but these two little scamps have decided to grow VERY thin at the base. also one of them is thin already but the "box" it's in is again, same size as all the other.

so my question is - how can i add girth too these certain spots?

i've been able to thicken some of my locks at the ends by pulling the dreads apart and then backcombing them to a larger lock but it's like impossible to do that at the root... i'm at a loss. and i would love to post pictures to show my issue but i'm currently in a "program" so cell phones just aren't a thing. =)

thank guys! i'm at a loss and limited to what i can do while i'm here. I just don't want them to fall out. lol
