Hair elastic alternatives?
If you can find smone who either knits or crochet, or if you can do either then just do a long strip but about an inch and half wide. I do a stip of either woolen or even hemp and then sew a wooden button which is cut from a branch and 2 holes drilled in, it looks so awsome with the dreads. If i can find the picture of it amongst my 100's of pics i will add it here.
If you r intersted and would like one, just leave me a message and i can post you one, i do the craft and have many colours of wool to choose from.
