lol I wanna hear the result of this.
But yeah extension can be cool I guess to make a more fuller look If you can attach them well that is. I'm considering to add a couple as well. Might look cool! So please do tell if you find a good non harmful and easy method
Yeah don't crochet again. I had mine crocheted and backcombed in the beginning too. And they really became much much thicker. They're 7 months now. I say don't worry and wait and in one year your dreads gonna look better than the person who had their crochet maintained all the time. It's just a matter of time
Thanks! ^_^ I enjoy putting them on my dreads.
You just buy a polymer clay, the only one I could find around here is FIMO but it's not very good, it's a bit too hard and takes ages to soften it up by cutting and kneading it. Then I take different colors and layer them together one on top of each other in little squares then try to poke through the layers with whatever I can find to use like a tool to create different patterns then I push the sides together to compact it so that there's no air in between. Cut the resulted square into slices and now the slices will have different colors in them because of the poking through it and then use those squares to wrap around some metal rod so that it won't burn in the over. Then usually on the packaging of the clay it will say how long you have to keep them in the over and at what temperature. Just follow the instructions and make sure there is so smoke coming out, if there's smoke that means the temperature is too much. And be sure to keep it the exact right time that is specified, this way it will be durable for a long time.
I also use a roller thing for making dough but a mechanical one to flatten the clay. Basically you can do anything with it, experiment to make different patterns and designs and then wrap around some metal rod and shape it, that's it.
There ones are pretty basic,I wanna try going for something more complicated and try to attach stuff to them like feathers and stuff, then maybe sell them on Etsy or something. I wonder if anyone would buy it?
I'm also making crochet tams and beanies too, gonna try making a dreadlock tube next, cuz I want one xD
Don't crochet. It can seem to help at first but if you try to make them ticker that way it can cause many problems and prolong the coming of maturity. It can actually make the dreads thinner in the long run. I tried it on one of my dreads forexperimentationand it doesn't work. In the end it just makes tht part too tight. Time will thicken dreads better. If you want thicker dreads then it's best not to touch them and no palm rolling especially because palm rolling really thins them down. Justseparatewhen needed. It's written on ur page tht u palm roll so if you're still doing that, that should be ur problem. Just stop doing anything and they'll get thicker. A good texture of dreads should be spongy feeling not tight.
