So, remember when Mgazi tried to cut out four of her dreadlocks? (See Dreadlock Carnage.) Well, she was successful with three, but for some reason she couldn’t get the scissors to completely cut through one loc in the back of her head.
I posted to my Yahoo Group (Adoption Hair & Skin Care) warning other parents about the possibility that their children may change their minds about whether or not they want dreadlocks. And worse yet, they may take action, as mine had. A wonderful woman named Deanna, suggested I sew the fourth lock back together! Brilliant idea, Deanna! THANK YOU !
Here’s how it looks.
Kinda wishing I had stuck with the twists I started back in Africa. But I imagine they would look very similar to the locks and Mgazi would have been hot and cold on them too.
I like this post. How did you sew the loc back together?
Hi! Thanks! I used nylon thread. It’s actually a black/grey in color but is called “invisible thread.”
I haven’t thought about this cut loc in months… haven’t noticed it at all really, since I sewed it back together. Which, I think, is a good sign!
