Here is a small video of my first three (experimental) dreads and the synthetic extensions I made and attatched all by myself! Not too shabby! I think this is going to work!
I am still awaiting my hair which I ordered from buyhair.co.uk .
If you are wondering what the heck I am doing in the video, I am trying to show you where the extension starts on each dread, what each one looks like up close, and finally, to show you how the tips turned out. Remember, I had just finished doing both the dreads and the extensions. So, they are completely fresh. Not bad really, in my opinion, especially given the fact that the synthetic hair was straight, silky hair, and my natural hair in the back there is not nappy at all (and also has been relaxed). I am experimenting with different techniques for making both the dreads and the extensions and with ways to get them attached so that they look natural. I will be sharing my conclusions pretty soon. But for now, adieu! and enjoy. (I'd be interested in any feedback or comments should you care to share!)
