My dreads are just under 3 weeks old anad I've found I like to tie them up by twisting them together at the back then clipping them onto my head (kind of like this http://www.longhairgirl.com/images/usage/jawclip2.jpg but with dreads and a whole lot shorter :P). They're only about 6 inches long so not all of them even go into the clip but I wanted to know if it will make them dread more slowly... I'm suspecting the answer will be yes because if they're held onto my head then they can't move around?
I get bored of wearing them down or with a buff all the time, does anyone have any other ideas of anything I could do to them to add a bit more variation? (And before you say it, while I would love to go and buy lots of funky hats, my student budget won't allow it :P).
Hey, My boyfriend bought a school bus a while ago (so we can go travel!), and a friend has done a documentary on it...I thought I would post this because my boyfriend is a dreadhead (who is shown in the film), plus maybe some of you would be interested in our trip... If this isnt alowed, please let me know!
I was able to avoid the camera for most of the production, but you can see me (who is also dreaded) in the very last clip dancing my heart out next to my boy at Phoenix's First Annual Parade for the Arts.
