Posted:Entirely off-topic, but does anyone know anyone who might be prepared to install some hair extensions for me? I want to buy some of these - http://www.fragglelox.com/
- as double-ended dreads as funky traveling hair for when I finally quit my job in February. My friends, while the most delightful people in the world and all of whom I love deeply, have already proved themselves less than competent when it comes to attching dreads to my hair and I want these to last a few months so I don't have them dropping out halfway round Thailand. Would anyone care to help? I will pay in money, beer, construction of PVC clothing (hey, it's all I'm good at) or whatever you like...

Posted:How can you be off topic in a thread you started yourself? confused

I'm not sure any tied in hair extention/dreads will last all that long. How long did you want them for?

Star is probably the lady to ask.

Posted:You can keep dreadlock extensions in for a maximum of 3 months. It's easy to make the dreads out of Kanekalon, myself and Polythene spent a weekend earlier this summer making some for me. This is the photo page from our dreadlock adventure!

Posted:I kept my last roving wool extensions in for about 2 months... I doubt I'll be away for more than 3 months due to the pressing financial situation I am permanantly in!



Skully - I meant off-topic for poi but I guess it doesn't matter in social...



Sir Sheep - love your photo page! I have something similar for my natural dreads but not nearly so extensive! Ans also - ubblove your avatar - I was obsessed with that song for months!

Posted:OMG what amazing hair extensions!!! biggrin

*starts saving pennies*



I only leave my extensions in for a week or two, this is because having really straight hair means that they slip out in a relatively short time. its also because i like being clean and i can't wash my hair with them in,



I'm not sure if that kind of extensions would be good for travelling, not sure how well they would cope with being in for a long time. Also, i don't think you would be able to wash your hair with them, which might be icky when you are travelling about hot humid places.

Edit: just looking at their site again. They are 100% wool which would make washing them insanely difficult!





I might order a sample to see what they are like.

Posted:I washed mine once a week, with diluted Orginal Source mint shampoo. Just be careful to rinse throughly - any left over residue will cause much itching. Don't condition as it's an emollient and will make it slip out faster. Washing will make your hair very heavy, but I had no problems letting it air dry as the fake dreads seemed to dry much faster than my hair would normally.

Once a week I also had my able assistant (flid) tighten the dreads by fixing rubber bands closer to the scalp (making the lenght slighly shorter, but keeping the whole thing looking tidier).

You can also make fringes (which I didn't do last time, but may well the next) as it will start looking straggly at the front (as mine did).

Posted:Thanks, Sakura_Virus! I also make falls but feel that extensions are the way forward if I'm going to be travelling - I'm desperate to get my cool hair back for at least a few months while I'm out of the office.... I used to have brilliant natural dreads with random plastic but since becoming a corporate hobag it's all had to come out frown

Posted:Vixen - just a fabric shop - PVC's quite easy to sew, especially if you can get some with a little bit of "give" to help with fitting! I tend to use velcro (no, not because it's easier to strip (although that is an advantage...) rather than zips as it makes them easier to adjust on fat v thin days! Most impressively for me, that was all hand-sewing as the sewing machine had packed in. The back is excellent - I wish I'd taken a picture - I did it as a corset back with red ribbon lacing which looked great against the white.

Posted:Vixen - it's not too hard to hem or it actually gives a good crisp look if it's just cut very straight - I've found it tends to curve better with the body if it's not hemmed for some reason, although that could just be my hemming!

Matt - are you implying that a velcro-attached nurse's uniform is in some way more alluring than my usual blanket-shorts-bikini-hangover ensemble? Surely not! confused2
