Varnish wooden beads?


Dread Accessories

Good point, I'll just put one or two in for now and see what happens. I can always take them out if there is an issue. :)

Varnish wooden beads?


Dread Accessories

Ok, my sister just gave me a load of wooden beads from old necklaces, the holes were tiny so I drilled them out, no problem there. However the beads had been varnished or 'finished' some how and the newly drilled holes are 'raw' wood - if that makes sense. I managed to lightly sand the insides to smooth them out a bit so they don't scag my hair but was wondering if I should varnish the insides of the holes. I was just thinking that when I wash my hair they might absorb water or something and end up going weird. What do you guys think? Should I just get some varnish and give the insides a light coat, just to be on the safe side?

DREAD BEADS!


Dread Accessories

I mentioned this in a different thread but flesh tunnels are a good choice, plenty of styles and materials to choose from and you can also be extremely specific with the size you want. There are plenty of jewellery shops on and offline so they are easy to find.

Where did your get yours?


Dread Accessories

Another good alternative to beads are flesh tunnels, check jewellery shops. The good thing about them is how specific you can be with the sizes.

How do I dry my hair?


Introduce Yourself

All I do is wrap my hair in a towel, gentlysqueezeit so the bulk of the water is absorbed into the towel then let it dry naturally.

Thanks :D


Introduce Yourself

I've been lurking on this forum for a while now. I'm currently at just over 22 weeks natural, originally washing every 2 days with Dr Bronners but currently using the Baking Soda wash every 3-4 days. My hair has changed a lot over these 22 weeks with knots coming and going but they never seemed to stay or seem like they would become dreads. However over the past couple of days I noticed my hair has finally starting dreading with 4 or 5 distinct dreads forming. I mainly wanted to just say thanks to this site and all of the members for 'opening' my eyes and preventing me from using wax. Because of you guys I now have the very early stages of hopefully a healthy set of dreads which will mean a lot more to me than some 'instant' waxed mess ever could. I hope to become a contributing member of this forum and look forward to getting to know some of you. I don't have any pictures at the moment but I will log my progress as I go.

Cheers

Jake

feeling a bit discouraged :(


Dreading Methods

I'm at 18 weeks today and only over the last few weeks have I seen much action, I only have a few dreads beginning to form. Just take comfort in the knowledge that it will happen.
