I'm in need of an elastic. No plastic.


General Questions

I'm unsure of how successful I'd be with hairpins. And Baba, I might need a visual example of how to tuck my dreads. It's mainly the thicker ones on the sides that give me trouble. Caleb, I've tried the t-shirt thing, but it's far too tight. I might just need to use larger shirts, though. Thanks for the suggestions so far, guys! Maybe after class I can upload a photo of a tucking attempt.

General Questions

Trust me, I've tried tying my dreads together. It was a giant mess. All the thick ones wouldn't cooperate at all. Maybe after it gets a bit longer I'll be able to manage, but for now I definitely need... something.

General Questions

Recently started college and even more recently began job searching. I'm positive my hair is going to raise some concern, whether I like it or not. I'm not too upset about that. Problem is, my hair is, well, very thick. It makes it a bit difficult to tie back, and until I start getting paychecks, I don't think I'll be able to buy a tam. I can tie the hair on the top of my head with simple fabric, but the sides need something a bit... tougher. Anyone know where I can purchase a cheap elastic that'll get the job done? Any recommendations?

Long hair covering my face and eyes HELP!


General Talk

It didn't work for me, since my hair's too thick, but you could try cutting the sleeves off of an old shirt and using that as a headband. Or just cut a strip of fabric and use that to tie your hair into a ponytail in the back. I'm sure you can think of something.

what are your dreads like?


General Talk

I've got about 64. Give or take 2 or 3, since I always feel like I've counted some of the same ones twice. As for thickness, it varies depending on where on my head they form. Towards the front, they're thinner, but in the back(especially on the top), they're fat and hungry, like an obese kid. I've got mediums just about everywhere and a few skinnies. My dreads are mostly smooth, but I think that's due to my hair texture. Never saw too many loops as they formed. Had a lot of balls of hair forming at ends, though. Heck, I still have a few in the back. For the most part, I love 'em, but I just wish the ones in front grew back and not out in my face. D'oh well, what can you do with african hair? It does whatever the hell it wants.

Dreadlock Nightmares...


General Talk

Dread nightmares? Interesting... I can't say I've ever had those. Although mine are kind of thick. I can't really imagine them breaking off. I suppose it's possible though.

I didn't refresh the page and missed that lovely caricature. If I have time to go out to the store tomorrow, I will certainly do that. Thanks, Valerie. And thanks, SE for the bun suggestion. It led to braids, though, since my hair is waaaaay too thick and not quite long enough for a bun.

Alright, so what I ended up doing was braiding the dreads on top(extremely hard, since they're all different thicknesses), and I managed to slip the cap on top of the mass of braids. It won't go over the sides, but... Yeah, that's just impossible for hair as thick as mine. I'll settle on this. The braids look horrid, but it's a worthy sacrifice.
