ya know...


Dread Maintenance

Totally... I've taken to occupying myself with decorations.. trying to make beads (experimenting is fun) and now I'm trying to make hats, since it's getting friggin' cold outside.It's been a whole two weeks (geez, I know, small-time) and but instead of salt-spraying them every six hours and constantly separating the roots, I've already started to act like they're just another part of me instead of this huge new thing that I have to cope/deal with/get used to...I'm not going to say that dreads are an instant pass to being more productive (never instant anything..lol) but it's already starting to carry over in the less fussing and fiddling with things constantly. The dread-lets and a lot of other things in life can take care of themselves, and be the better off for it.

HELP! hives from baking soda!


General Questions

Test a portion of your skin with just the diluted baking soda mixture... say maybe a 2in x 2in area, to see if it's actually what caused it. If there's no reaction, try it again with a mixture of the baking soda wash and the Dr. Bronners, that way you'll know if it's just a combination of the two things....There might be a chemical reaction when combining the baking soda with the soap that's causing the irritation.

How tight should the hole be?


Dread Products

lol. ;-)I kinda figured that I didn't want to squeeze the life outta the dreads, but like I said, they're tapered, and so far it's like... if I get the top part (closest to the scalp) snug, it's not snug enough to keep the whole bead from shifting down, because the the further down (away from the scalp), the looser it is on the dread.... If that makes sense?I guess I could try making a tapered bead...lol. And I'm trying to figure out how to make spiral beads with the polymer clay without them slumping in the oven. >.< If I can get the spiral thing down, that's work perfectly.Right now I have about fifteen that I've gotten to stay in, my babies are all different sizes, so it's hard to judge how big I have to make the inner diameter.. but if it were easy, it wouldn't be nearly as fun.. or satisfying in the end.

How tight should the hole be?


Dread Products

Tsk tsk tsk, dirty minded dreadies! lolI am, of course, talking about beads. I'm experimenting in making my own beads, because I'm crafty like that, and I've already got butt-tons of polymer and paper-clay lying about that I haven't used in a while.But, I'm not sure how tight is too tight for dread beads... should they be just tight enough to not fall off, or kind of snug, or what. I used the twist -n- rip so mine are kind of tapered. My dreads are already tightening up right-nice, and I'm mostly just wanting beads to kind of help with sectioning so I don't have to rip quite so much.So what say you, my fellow dreadies? How tight do you prefer your bead's holes?Light-n-LaughterTrev.

General Talk

Sounds like you're level headed enough to not let any of their pissing-around get into your cheerios (so to speak). There will almost always be people who will get defensive over even the most light-hearted criticism. ;-)Just take it with a grain of salt, and be satisfied with all the people you're helping to prevent being in a 'sticky' situation.

"Washing da dreads"?


Dread Products

I loved it when I was at the beach for the 4th of July this year. It's what made me finalize my decision to get dreads... I was there for a day, and they started forming.You're in M'boro? I grew up north of Nash, in White House. Small world... lol.

General Talk

If my dreads were mature, I'd do it in a heartbeat. ;-) But they're young and a big gangly and such still. Life is what it is. Diamondskies said:

I just though of the perfect response to that article.......if someone has a jar of dhhq wax and the ability to post videos on youtube. On the video explain that you have "The perfect way to use dhhq wax!" What it was meant to be...A candle. Push a wick down into the wax on video and light it.
