Denise's Neglect/TnR Timeline ~ *UPDATED January 17, 2014*


Member Journals and Timelines

I love the idea you had to just make a few dreads on the top layer of hair and leaving the rest loose. That looks awesome! (Unless I'm blind and you're just not combing the rest, in which case, it's still awesome!)

is rinsing my dreads everyday okay?


Dread Maintenance

I'd suggest getting rid of the problem altogether and stop smoking ;)

As for your actual question, I'm not sure, so hopefully someone else will have a better answer!

Turning a wine cork into a bead


Dread Accessories

How did you try to make a pendant out of the cork? A friend's mother made me a "butterbeer" necklace out of a cork for the fifth Harry Potter movie premiere, and she just wrapped wire around it and attached it to a ribbon.

I like this idea. I've thought of trying to make pendants out of corks but they always turned out bulky and not working for me. I might try this when I get home and try using a clear varnish that I have that's used for clay see if that works. I would suggest either just pouring it down the whole to just coat the inside or it might be better to dip the whole thing in a clear coat sealant of some kind in order to avoid water retention like someone mentioned earlier...

Great idea! I've been getting into beading lately, so maybe a reamer will be even more helpful one day :) I'll take a look next time I'm around a craft store!

I like the idea too :)

I'll keep this in mind, thanks! :)

any thick wire(coat hanger)that you can hold(pliers?) safely(it will get hot).

heat about an inch of the end over the stove(red hot) and slowly, gently move it through and around inside the hole, being careful not to push too hard as you may burn deeper than wanted.

I don't have anything like that I don't think... unless you have a homemade way! :P

Dave said:
id think a drill would tear up the cork more as cork has a very open grain, it may be safer to try burning the hole with a hot poker then a good wash out.

Yeah, I don't wear any if my beads when washing or wet for that very reason :)

i have a little concern about the inside (loose cork) holding water in your dread. So i would def coat it. It may or may not be a problem but to be on the safe side, maybe not wear it when washing..or when hair is wet.

Turning a wine cork into a bead


Dread Accessories

Hello all!

I have a cork that I've put a small hole through (perfect size for me), but inside is all the corky mess and I'm not sure how I can get rid of this so that it doesn't get stuck into my hair when I put it on/leave it on.

I've got plans to follow through the hole with a drill to make the hole more uniform, but besides that, I really don't know how to smooth out the inside to make it wearable.

Any thoughts?

Giving up shampoo


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Well, it depends on what you mean. A lot of people here don't use shampoo in the typical sense; they use baking soda. Do you mean giving up shampoo by not washing? If so, I'd encourage you to keep your hair clean! Clean hair will knot up a lot easier than oily hair.
