Hey, sorry for the stupid post.
But i read something on here last night about Apple Cider Vinegar, and now i cant find the post.
Does anyone know what im talking about?
and could you send me the link?
Okay, so I know the ins and outs of dread extensions thanks to the memories.
There was this post a little while back that got me thinking though. A person used the synth hair that you can get at Claire's or places like that and successfully made some extensions, but she didn't go into detail about exactly what kind of synth hair it was so I'm a little confused (I have zero experience with synths).
My main point here is that I have these two electric purple synth hair clips that I now really want to dread up and sew into my locks.
Now, I remember the OP saying something about how the hair she used was like barbie doll hair and it still managed to work, but the hair I have is like..dollar general styley. It's REALLY cheap and silky and fake. I just love that color.
I'm wondering if anyone (particularly the OP?) has any tips on dreading up the synth hair or any experience trying it with the cheap-o stuff I have. Do you think it will unravel easier than natural locks?
I'm definitely going to try it tonight unless I get a definite response that it shouldn't work and I'll be wasting my time. Theoretically I think I have a shot. I'll take pictures of how it turns out to post after I do my first deep cleaning
Oh! That reminds me... with the deep cleaning recipe how vital is the tea tree oil? I know it's all antifungal and stuff, and fungal doesn't sound good for dreads, but I can't be arsed to go out and buy some right now and I really want to clean them tonight. Should the baking soda and everything get them clean enough, or will I be wasting my time yet again?
:) Stay knotty.
((Oh, and as a sidenote: I found a fabulous gay guy who wears white linen from Bermuda to maintenance my dreads for me for $50. I love his hair, and I've seen that he did good work on my friend's dreads, but I've never had it done before by anyone. Do you think $50 is a good rate? It seemed fair to me, at least...))
