You don't Say?

I'm posting this video - not because I am going to visit 'Sabrina the dreadlock extension Queen' (although maybe I should????) but because it'll give you an idea as to what my hair/head looked like before all of the loccies dived off.

I wonder if those 'new' locs broke off at the root after a month or whether they are still attached (to what little hair was left on the lady's scalp). Hmmmmm.

@Anthia & Anonymous - the wonderfully friendly lady you both recommended to me is currently quite ill, please remember her in your prayers. I'll do a post on her and that experience later. 
These are my words and this is my journey, from 'there to hair'!  My life, the lessons learned in and through love and loves ones; and my hair affairs.

Oh, I will send gerrylocs an email. Did you contact her?
Now how did Sabrina repair those locs??? I mean, how does one attach locs to a place where there's no hair? Will the new locs remain attached? Will the roots be pulled out? It looks good, but, I'm wondering how it can be maintained as the lady had extensive bald area or are my eyes decieving me?

Hi Anthia-Ofo,

I did contact Gerrylocs (by phone) she wasn't very well... so I'll have to rock a straight look (argh!) until she is well enough to assess me.

I have an idea as to how Sabrina is doing it but it involves hair glue and additional hair (e.g. afro kinky braid) - like you however, I am cautious as to whether they remain attached because the client DEFINITELY had extensive bald areas (just like me!)

Definite food for thought...

That is awesome. When I do go back to Sisterlocks and if I still have problem areas, I may have to give those lock pieces a try. I know a consultant down here that does lock pieces but I'm not sure how the does them.

If that lady does uses glue, I don't think I could use that as an option, cause I'm sure the glue wears off, I would need something more permanent.

If it's glue...ouch! That will pull hairs out won't it? I wish I knew how she worked the magic. I have loc pieces of various sizes and widths. One by gerrylocs which uses a net that you pull your locs through and the others I made myself but haven't figured out the best way to attach. Whilst the gerryloc piece is good, it stays in for a few weeks until time to retighten. I only need something I can quickly put in for fullness and take out when I don't want it.Bit like those pony tails/hair attachements. If you have any ideas let me know.

I'm thinking mesh with a pull string.

Visualize a tic tac toe board. Attach locs in the places needed and pull existing hair through the remaining spots.

It has to be nylon .....something breathable.

At least that's my theory.
