gimme your dreads

so since i make and sell tams and headbands, etc. etc. i'm making a model head and i'm gonna use it to model my tams. I'm also gonna put little dread-like things in the back of it so that the tams hang realisticaly instead of what it would look like on a bald person :P
so if anyone would like to contribute any old dreads, or even any kind of dread-like objects, felt dreads, twisted cloth, ripped pieces of backcombed burlap??? i dunno, anything like that i'm gonna include. If you would like to help me out email me at

and thanks guys!

ever had the feeling your hair picks up your mood? mine feel blah.
blah blah blah blah.

bad voodoo.

ps: i don't seem to be doing much to my hair anymore. i used to take care of my tips etc every week, work on them with mah funkay needle & stuff. but now i only rub the roots occasionally & separate some locks. i let them do their own thing. wait for growth. they were kinda like my own personal project. seems like it's finished. kinda.
last week's dread-attaching-thing kept me busy for a bit though.
my hair feels as if it's in between again. you know, like when your hair's about to get round tips, that in between feeling. maybe they'll turn purple this time, hehe.

i also managed to scare a little girl at the supermarket today.
i love it when that happens, hehe.

anyway. glance.

c'est tout.

could you try to explain a little differently your combining method to me...because you know, i'm retarded and everything, and don't get it.

maybe provide some visuals? possibly?

the part i really don't understand is why the crochet hook(or whatever tool) needs to be up in the center of the dread...
what purpose does that serve?

i've tried to figure it out several times, and each time i've failed.

soooo, if you could enlighten me, it'd be quite awesome.

I had been growing my hair out for a while with the intention of getting dreads. I was at about 8 inches or so (down to my chin) when last week I decided it would be best to cut my hair for court. I ended up cutting all but one or two inches. It sucks, but it was most likely for the best. I've never really thought too much about the neglect method of getting dreads because I had wanted neat looking dreads, but now I dont want to wait for my hair to grow out again. Could I start the neglect method now at 1 inch in hopes that they will just start to dread early and by the time my hair length is where it was before I will have a nice set of dreads or do you think that I will just have a nastly looking mess on my head for a while and it wont begin to dread up until its a lot longer? If that makes any sense

I know most of you don't care but I'm addicted to SIMS 2 and finally figured out how to get dreadlocks for the characters. I tested this out with Gina.

Here she is. Probably posting on the best dreadlock community on livejournal.
