  • Eee.

    My dreadies will be a year old next week, and apparently they've decided to celebrate that by trying to grow into each other again :rolleyes: Thought they were past that stage. And as much as I like having different sized dreads, i'd rather not have one giant one.

    Who wants to help me decorate them? :D Already have some pretty beads and sparkly things from friends but would love to put some more stuff in there, figured id rather have beads and things from nice hippy type people than spend £5 on a peyote stitch off eBay. Hmph.

    Sooo ... who wants to send me pretty beads/string/wraps/whatever those wire thingies are called?! Can send you some pennies or can swap for something random and sparkly, have lots of pretty bracelets and such im never going to wear. Ooh, and lots of incense, and candles with shells in. Yay. :insane:

    Anyone?

    I've been tripping from sipping the dripping dirty water tap,
    i've been thinking i'm drinking too many drinks all by myself.
    I've been poking a voodoo doll that you do not know I made, for you, of you.

    They will never grow out of this phase! It is something that some hair types are prone to more than others but there is nothing you can do to stop it except gently pull them apart after you wash them. If they are connected by a lot of hair, you'll have to rip the hair, a few strands at a time. That way you will keep the structure of both the dreads without risking pulling it all out at the root which will happen if you rip too much too hard :)



    I have these lurking somewhere if you like them.

  • Ooh wowwy. Thanks people!

    Anythingggg you have lying around would be great. My dreads are all different sizes so different sized beads would be wicked.

  • I have some really nice wooden beads spare, I bought them for my dreads, but there were so many.
    They're proper dreadlock beads and they're wooden, a very nice shade, a kind of dark reddish brown.
    Let me know if you want a few.
