Hair elastic alternatives?


Dread Accessories

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.

Thinning dreads even after combining roots.


Help! Save My Dreads

Sounds like you had a heck of a lot of dreads to start off with, i can see being that many that they would thin out quite alot. If they have just been done then your answer is 'yes' dreads do thin out an awful lot when they have just been done, it should stop soon. What do you mean you 'cut' off some?? You obviously need all the thickness you can get if they are thinning out as they grow longer. With 1 of your pics you say you have had dreads for 3 years, it looks like you have exceptionly thick hair - maybe its thinning out abit, is there any relatives in your family with the same type of hair as yours and is male, i really hope for you this is not the case but the fact that you have so much hair hopefully abit of thinning won't be noticed by others.

Acne due to dreads?


General Questions

Maybe its your skin being irritated by the new dreads, try tying your dreads back off your face for a couple of weeks to eliminate this idea, are you wearing some kind of a dread hat of dread tube that you didn't before. Or it could be pure coincidence with a hormone change or smthing.

Dread Wrapping?


Dread Maintenance

Mainly decoration, some people like 2 even out bumps and lumps in dreads to help them matture, or ifa dread dos'nt matt well. I just love dread wraps and jewelery so much especially of the natural types :)

They will not stop melding


Dread Maintenance

i think you answered it by saying you need to wrap each dread until they have properly tightened, then they wont congo anymore :)

General Questions

WOW Soaring Eagle I'm so surprized but real happy that you r into adding more dreads by making them up, this is so what i need to do as my dreads r far apart and thinner than i hoped.

Peace.

General Questions

You have had the hardest ones to reach done - you could do 1 an evening while sitting on the couch watching tv, if thats what you do. If you need step by step instructions for making some dreads out of synthetic or coloured sheeps wool i can help you. It is so easy to make double ended dreads and just threading them through the top of 1 of your own dreads, they stay there as the're threaded through the root of your own dread and they r easy removed by just pulling and they slide out! If you had some more done on your own hair they would probably fill in nice, as you have layered sections on your hair right to the crown and past, so that alone will fill in the gaps more. I have this exact feeling about my dreads as there is gaps where there is no dreads, i have to really place mine nice if i want to take a pic or they r tied up most of the time to just look half descent.
