has anyone ever seen, or more to the point, does anyone know where to get metal beads that go on the tips of yr dreads and sort of come to a point? *hard to describe* i suppose they could be said to look sort of like talons, except straight...

My favorite way to add volume and life to your dreads after you've slept on them and they're droopy or stuck to the side of your head:

Fill spray bottle with water that has a tiny trace concentration of sea salt and lemon juice (it shouldn't be very salty or sour to the taste). Spray dreads enough so that they're moist everywhere but not soaking wet. Rub head (vigorously!) with a small towel until dry.

I love that feeling of curly, thick, bulging, lion's-mane dreads.


So, I started my dreads on the 3rd, and haven't really been doing a lot of palm rolling and stuff. I get lazy, haha.

How will my dreads turn out if I just kind of leave them to do whatever they want? Will they even dread or whatever?

Would it be dumb to just leave my hair alone? Ok, well any help is greatly appreciated.

hey, i posted earlier. And I'm doing it. i really am. well, i have to wait for the hair to grow. and so forth..

but i have a question. i know it's vague and pretty unrealistic for an answer..

but my hair is pretty course/dry, is wavy and really thick. how long do you think it'll take for the dreadys to take over? when i was younger I would have to sit for hours as people would uncomb the giant dread in the bottom of my hair (my hair was long and apparently I didn't brush deep enough). This happened more than once in my life. So I KNOW dreads can be undone. and I KNOW my hair dreads easily...

so anyone wanna help

oh and im white. duh. should say that. hahahaha... but its pretty obvious.
