Posted:Hi ya,

Once i finish my job and go back to being a lazy student in Brighton in september; i want to get pink wool dreads. I met a girl on the beach at the weekend who did her own and said she would do mine for me which is a result as i would have gone up to London to get them done otherwise and they charge more than she will do them for (she'll do them for 50). I don't know a lot about dreads and i'm a little worried that they will ruin my own hair (as i have really long good condition hair and don't want to fuck it up); and maybe think that wool braids would be better; does anyone know? Also does anyone know of a place in Brighton where i can buy the wool, or a website i can buy them from? I heard there was somewhere in Lewes but thats a bit of a mission for me.

Thanks xxx

Posted:Yeah twirlyvic that was what i've been thinking, my hair at the moment is medium brown, and i want to do pink braids (the pink aspect is the most important), would it look silly like with dark hair and pink wool; should i die my hair bleach blonde. Although thing is with dieing it would be that my natural hair colour would grow through. I've seen a photo of a girl with pink braids and black hair and the contrast was amazing it worked really well.

Reason for wool, i've been told, thats its cheaper, easier for the person whos putting it in, and easier to maintain (you can get it wet and its ok).

Posted:Look at this site, has really good pictures of wool, braids, dreads and plastic. I'm either going for mushrooms, or rainbow brite.

Posted:I am dreaded without me dreads...
They are calling me...Me be thinking bout dreads for a long long time...

The choice has been made its just a matter of when...Fun companions! Dont really have a need for 'products,' I already got a big problem with my current hair 'oh shit my hair went into dreads'... 'not again!...' Which if I had dreads would not be a problem

What is the best way? I have heard of backcombing (although some swear against it), ruber band lopping tying notting things (never heard the name), the lovely 'tear em appart' method and also I have heard of 'hand rolled' apparently with no backcombing...

All and all they dont seem like too much stress for people with curly hair
I must advise those who REALLY REALLY want them to get them... Why not...? There is no life altering draw back to getting dreads
You could always take them out if you dont like them...
Although I know of many who entered the dreaded dimension and swear they will never go back!

Much love to all and keep ur dreads twisted!

Posted:Does anyone have any braiding tips?

I know lolli was looking for a place where a friend could get her hair done when she was out here in Sydney, & I have found a couple of places, but they look expensive.


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...
