I’ve come to realize that thin hair makes thin dreadlocks and there’s nothing you can do to make them thicker. Nor is there any way to cover up cowlicks or empty spots once the original locks are made. That’s why I decided to add synthetic dreadlocks to my hair. I buy bags of hair from CyberloxShop and form them myself. The first couple rounds didn’t turn out great, but I’m pretty happy with my current results. I planned them out with darkest colors on top and brightest colors underneath. I also planned to have them layered with the top of my head being the shortest dreads and the bottom back of my neck being the longest ones. I think my mermaid dreads turned out pretty sweet. 🙂
I’ve been washing my hair about once every four days with one of Lush’s fabulous vegan shampoos. I mostly just wash get my roots and scalp. I’m also dying my hair black once every couple months or so.
