Baby dreads... Extensions?


Dread Accessories

I added extensions to mine about 2 months after I started them so I could get all my hair to tie up because it was so short. I used a crochet hook to attach them. I loved them and had no issues. Best of all, I could still "be professional" at work because I could style them up better. I have had no damage and since removed them. I wore them for about a year and a half. There are some video tutorials on youtube by zorgzilla and silvija J that are helpful. :)

Healing Crystal Dread Beads!


Dread Accessories

I make all kinds of dread accessories... I have even included crystals in some of my designs. Do you have a photo of something similar to what you would like? Do you want a healing crystal wrap completely metal free including wire to secure the crystal? What materials would you like to see? Perhaps I can make you something custom. :)https://www.etsy.com/shop/HeatherfishCreations

I love a good creative challenge :)

crochet dreads discussion and pictures


Dreading Methods

Even with the possibility of being hammered for this (there were some pretty strong opinions up there) I must say, I use a number 8 crotchet hook on my dreads about once every 2 months to take care of my new growth. I have done it for a year and a half and have had no issues and no breakage... There really is a right and wrong way to use one... and no, I don't tighten up my dreads so much that they stick straight out... that looks like it would be rather uncomfortable...

Beard dreads are so awesome!! :) Go for it! If you ever feel like it starts to get too unruly, you can always keep them in check with some beads or wraps. A few of my customers buy my bone dread beads for their beards and they look awesome... also helps if you have a special event where you need to look a little more on the fancy side. Happy growing! :)

My new bone and wood beads! :)


Dread Accessories

Hello all! I just wanted to stop by and share with you all what I did with my free time during this break! I carve bone and wood normally, and thought it would be fun to make some dread beads.... I have one design done so far and am finishing up some others. Some of the materials I am using to make these are Hawaiian koa wood(from a damaged tree), cow bone, water buffalo horn, and wire. I love to recycle things and make them beautiful! I have this particular design on my etsy page now if anyone is interested! :)https://www.etsy.com/listing/125842056/hand-made-dread-bead-cow-bone-hawaiian?

So....does anyone have any design ideas? Or any particular style they would like to see me make? I have had so much fun making these!!! :)
