started dreads on very thin, fine hair
note: sarah's hair is VERY thin. i warned her that i would start her dreads &
i believe she'll be happy, but if they become too heavy for her scalp to
support, she will have to cut them. she is fully aware of this risk & still
elected to proceed.

note 2: the pink color on her scalp is from her hair dye, not from irritation
or strain.

sarah hadn't been to see me in about 18 months. because of her hair type, in
conjunction with her below-average number of follicles, new hairs weren't
making it into her dreads - thus, she was having issues with her roots
thinning. she was very concerned they were beyond the point of repair, but i
was able to backcomb the loose chunks back into her dreads, saving them.
