[help!] How do I attach a hair strand of mine to the normal / not dreadlocked hair of a friend?
well the only ways i can imagine will end up with a dread with both your hairs together
that would be wrapping braiding extending but using a tight wrap to hold em together tuill they dread together
you could even use a tight bead and use something rounded but thin to cram the hauirs from both ends through the bead preferabley all the way through in both directions
like push hers through with an inch stickig out then push yours up and in ssome of hers will be pushed back in but try to do uyours in tuffs so your mostly pushing yours again try to get an inch through it wont be exact its experimental im making it up as i go along once you got the hairs all in the bead from both directions go back arounfd trying to push some ..not all but some of those loose ends back f]down and in the idea is to compact the hair gently inside the bead from both directions so it holds well is already chaotic and perfect for dreading then a dread will form from the bead up and down, 1st up probably
if your not wanting to extend it just mix it twist it tofgether then do tnr some hairs will pull out just add em back in'
you could also use a peyote stitch and just cram as much of both in there as will fit snuggley
remember use a round smooth something maybe something like the "people" from the game of life unly lil longer but bout that size maybe smaller no sharp edges a thin rod with ball like end or at peast round it and smooth it with a file
if the beds thick and theres enough hair a smoothed out coat hanger could be used to strt till it was a lil packed then shift to something much thinner like 1/2 the thickness
im just coming up wiith that off the top of my head though wrapping certainly might be a more tried and true methood
