brick layer sections are good to make sure your dreads don't show much scalp on the back give a nice full look . Mine are majority brick layer but of course some are not all the same and I have a few lil sections that made themselves from loose hairs becoming baby dreads .it is okay if they aren't all the same size . unless you are looking for that all perfect same size look.
Thanks Ixchel for the advice, I think I will go for grid, however, different sizes. 1 inch and 1 and a half inch. One last question.. will my dreads be as thick as the root sections eventually?
you can do triangles or fans instead (http://www.doctoredlocks.com/catalog/Braid-and-Dreadlock-Sectioning...) or just grab bits & pieces as you see fit, you don't really have to follow any sort of grid. or let your hair section itself for a few days/weeks & then use your natural sectioning. variety & variation is good, helps them look natural & have a "flow" to your head. even if you do a grid they may not keep to it very well, dreads have a tendency to do what they want
Hi everyone, im worried about the bricklaying method of sectioning my hair. Because the sections at the front/sides will be half the thickness every other row. Has anyone done this method and are there advantages and disadvantages. Sorry if it sounds stupid, but I want to get it right..
