maintenance request! (worc/boston ma) and hair elastic question...

Ok, the hair elastics first...

On formed dreads that you're trying to put into a pony tail (or bun or many pony tails); what sort of elastic or tie do you prefer? I want to start wearing my hair in two pony tails or buns, but the medium-sized fabric covered elastics that I bought a few months ago turn to shreds after a handful of uses. The damned things just pull apart and are worthless (probably due to the huge mass of hair they have to stretch over). Anyone had some better luck?

Secondly, if you live in or near worcester/boston, MA and are curious...
Type your cut contents here.
So I've got these here dready thingers on my head.  They're quite nice actually, except for the 9 or some months worth of growth on the back and lower sides of my head.  I've got tiny crochet hooks and tools but Oh!  I fail.  The little hair squalls simply refuse to dread on their own...  So here I go, requesting some help from the nice folk of the inter-web-world.

I am quite poor.  Oh so poor.  Unemployed and partially temporarily disabled, but not enough to get disability.  So I'd like to offer a trade, one I'd enjoy immensely.  Hula hoop.  I'd like to offer you one of those biiiig yummy awesome hand-made (by me) hoops, good for festivals and dancing and clubs and exercise and FUN!  I would also looove to show you a few tricks and moves that I've been working on (shoulder hooping, getting the hoop up and back down and so on) to give you some ideas.  Anyone interested?  I travel to boston semi-regularly to visit a sister and doctor's appointments, otherwise I hoop around worcester... by foot, as i'm car-less.
