Posted:I have dreads down to the middle of my back...Although I'm not fully ready for fire yet, that is my ultimate goal! So, am I going to set my hair on fire? I definitely do not want to cut them, and wet dreads are just too heavy.... What do you think?

So, am I going to set my hair on fire?



probably... but hopefully only the odd singe or two; pretty much everyone will know the smell and touch of crispy-fried hair at some stage...

there's about a ba-zillion threads on this elsewhere on the board, so I'm not going to re-hash it all, for the ba-zillion and one-th time... do a search and you'll get back plenty of helpful hints...

good luck with it all...

Posted:The only real way of keeping em outta the way is to ball em on top of your head, but that will really throw off your balance I find.

If I'm performing I'll usually have them all in a big hat, it can get in the way of halo roll style tricks as the hairs all bunched up somewhere unusual, but I'll have practised enough to do it OK anyway.

If I'm just playing I throw some water on em and use a headband to make them stay somewhere near the back. I usually singe the loose hairs off a couple, but they don't get in the way nearly as much, and I can always leap out of the way if I think a staffs got a bit close!
