Did everyone here recieve their lovely dreadies through backcombing? I know that is the popular method...
Instead, my friend sectioned all the hair off and then with each section "pulled" the hair apart, like seperating it over and over again so the knots work up...and then a whole lot of palm rolling.
Anyone else ever use this method?
I'm really pleased with the results...and my dreads are not far off the length my normal hair was :)
So, I finally figured out all this extention stuff. I'm going to an AFRICAN HAIR BRAIDING place, to get the extentions. They do a really good job, and I've seen their stuff on caucasion women too, so it should be alright. Then from there I'm going to have my dready friend just well, dread it. Sound good? She thinks it'll work fine, since the extentions will be in tight, and since they'll then be dreaded in.
And a few questions on synth extentions:
-Do they generally come out easily?
-Do they prevent your natural hair from growing?
Thank you, sorry if it all sounds so stupid.
again on the topic of animal hair dreading (i know, you guys must be sick of it)
but to the people who did:
what kind of animals did you have?
i know it must work with long haired rabbits, cats, and dogs..but anything else?
here, i have one to start it off:
my best friend in 6th grade had this rabbit, i don't remember its name or what breed it was, but it had fluffy soft hair.
this hair had formed HUGE dreads, or more realistically, HUGE matts, making the rabbit look about 3 inches bigger all around than it actually was.
these dreadies where starting to hinder its movement.
so her dad decided to do something about it.
being the odd guyhe was, he put beer on the floor and let the rabbit drink it up.
effectively getting the rabbit drunk.
he then took the rabbit out of its cage and shaved it,removing all its dreads.
sad, but good for the rabbit.
this man continuously threatened to mop his floor with my dreads. once he did pick me up and hold me over a mop bucket, but never didn't dipmy hair, thank god, he did, however, mop his kitchen floor with his youngest daughters hair one day, that was odd to watch.
