Hello all =) I am having trouble keeping all my dreads up in a bun with a hair tie, my hair is too thick and dreaded now!! I was wondering if anyone could post some pictures of some hair styles that you only use your dreads to tie all your hair or most of it up, out of your face. and if you could maybe instruct me on how to do it? It would be very helpful and I would be ever so grateful... Thank you! <3

Tied up in knots

If you check my pictures you can see the way I wear my hair at work.

I just separate my hair into two close pigtails at the back center of my head and tie them in a knot. Then tie it in another knot. Then I flip the knots around to the "inside". It makes an interesting bun that stays up really well. If I do it right the first time it stays up all day. Because you flip the knots into the middle the tension and pressure from being held against your scalp keep the knots from unraveling. Make sure to tie the knots fairly tightly too.

Another way I wear my hair is to tie the top half of my hair like I did in the style above and then take the dreads left loose on the bottom and tuck it all over and into the hair that is tied up. This is also quite strong and will stay in most of the day. I don't have pictures of that though. I prefer it to the other style too. It shows off the dreads better.
