Australian Dreaders, lets be friends!


Introduce Yourself

Hey everyone!I was just thinking it would be nice to get as many Aussie dreaders on my friends list as possible! You can never have too many close by mates to share info with.However, if you're not Australian.... don't you worry. There is plenty of love on this post to share around!So I guess the idea would be to introduce yourself, tell me where you are all living the dream and then add as friend!Peace to allFrysyBrisbane, Australia

Real hair extensions for dreads or not?


General Questions

Oh yeah. All this heat has brought some amazing storms to Brissy. We had the biggest storm here yesterday, I haven't seen anything like it since I was a kid. Trees taken down, huge hail, cars swept away the rain. Insane I tell ya. Loving it though.

I like this idea if it was 30 Celsius here in Aus I'd be all over it haha. I'm still going to get a tam though, they look sweet!

Maxe said:

How about keeping it out of your face with a woolen tam? Also good for the dreads =)

Yeah thanks, I have decided to get the neglect on. I already have so many broken hairs from the crocheting, I think if I add the weight of extensions I could do some real damage!Time to get lazy with the hair and leave it be.Frysy

Lacey Koll said:

but! defintely DEFINITELY make sure, if you put extensions in, that you wait til your hair is mature. at least around 8 months to a year. i put mine it at around only one month. they stayed in very well. my real hair just wasnt dreading like it should have been. so, im taking them out, and maybe ill put them back in sometime!

I've actually bought this 100% aloe juice. Does that still apply with only using a little? It's not gel like at all, I even put it in a spray bottle and sprayed it on

Hmmm, it seems as if patience is the key to good dreads. Hair band shopping is a must. I'm just about to aloe my hair for the first time. Wish me luck

Thanks for all the hints and tips guys. I'm glad I didn't go out and spend 900 big ones to be laughed at once I walked out of the store haha. That is a crazy price when you can buy them off ebay for one tenth of the price.

I think I will let them grow out myself. Knottysleeves, I like your idea of head bands.... I'm going to pick some up. That site you linked as well is very good.

Thanks everyone!

Real hair extensions for dreads or not?


General Questions

So I have fairly short dreads, my front dreads can't quite reach behind my ears and it's very annoying to have them in my face all day. I also cannot put my hair up in a hair tie, which I'm dying to do.

What do we all think about getting human hair extensions? There is a place in Brisbane Australia that will do the extensions and dread them for $27.50 each dread. This seems so expensive. I have 33 dreads so I'd be looking at over $900.

I'm just wondering whether it's worth it, and whether there is any negatives to having extensions??

Thanks guys

Frysy

Beginning Crochet Recovery....


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Julie,

I am at the exact same stage as you. I waxed my dreads for the first month not knowing the damage this could have caused, I then decided to take up the crochetingtechniqueonly to get "hooked" (haha) on crocheting. I have been doing far too much for the last 3 months. I watched that video today and I too have started my journey of "letting go". I'm sure this will be the best method. Good luck in your dreads travels!

Oh yeah and keep up with the meditation. You should put good thoughts to your dreads when you meditate. I do!

Frysy
