Section Sizes and Size of Dreads.
How are your dreads now brother
I have had my dreads for 1 week now, but the last couple of days (especially today) have been tough, I'm not happy at all with them and even had thoughts of cutting them off!! Well, It wasn't a very good for me.
Background: I got them done by a person, who is supposed to be trained in making dreads, and paid to get them done.
1) SECTIONS: Apparently for unknown reasons she divided the head into a uniform grid rather than a bricklayer kind of thing and the result is there is a lot of white spots where the scalp can be seen.
Will this problem be minimised in the future once the locks get fatter?
2) SIZE: I think the sections are too big. I haven't measured them, but I think they are 1 1/2 inch and the dreads are too thin at the moment. With sections this large, I expected the dreads to be fatter from the beginning. I have 33 dreads now, but thought would have a few more as I seemed to have a lot of hair.
Will the dreads thicken up to roughly the size of the sections? If so, how would they thicken if the hair is already trapped into the dread?
When you look at my head, there are a lot more sections than dreads, you know?! I was expecting that the dreads would cover a lot more area, rather than having all these sections and scalp visible. Is this normal at the beginning???
Please, share your thoughts.
I have been wanting dreads for AGES really, maybe 20 years and now I'm feeling so bummed and sad that I'm not even enjoying them anymore. It is a disaster!!
I had a bit of trouble putting g beads on. mine are very very new so i debt know if this would apply to you but i found twisting the dread to make it tighter, then twisting the bead itself around the dread continually spinning it as you move it up its alto easier i like this thread idea but gonna have to try that!
