looking for headbands 
08:05pm 27/08/2007

Hi.  Can you help me out with finding wide non lace headbands to hide your own hair when wearing falls? I'm looking for plain black and everything I've found is either lace or has a print.  Thanks.

Hey im Laura, im new here, been messing around with fake hair for around 6 years now and finally have the time to start something new.

Fake hair and Rexlace

  Auction here for those interested--

  hey, I'm new here. My name is Kat & I'm looking to get into dread making for myself & to sell on if they're successful.

A while ago (about 3 years now) I started experimenting with making fake hair out of wool and then I gave up because I sucked. I sold all my wool and just put it all behind me. Now the craving as come back.

I bought some roving wool off ebay (linkage: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=004&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=140086090158&rd=1&rd=1
so you know what type of roving I'm using)

I found a tutorial on a website (linkage: http://www.angelfire.com/freak2/rovingtutorial/) which suggests soaking the wool with hot water & *any* soap with a high pH (does this mean clothes-washing-detergent liquid, hand-soap, fabric conditioner?) to let it "felt" before twisting/moulding it into dread shapes. I did that, and it worked on the day but the next day it'd poofed out a bit so I resoaked and it stayed...now I'd like to know is this the best way to make wool dreads? The tutorial says to use hot water. I tried luke warm and then gradually got hotter until I settled with using boiling water (obviously with a bit of cold in it to avoid melting my hands) and then I wondered how can I make it keep its shape? Is using hair moose advisable? I thought maybe it'd help them stay smooth and stuck together. AS I said, I'm new to this and I can't remember how my friend used to make them - we've lost touch over the 3years so I can't ask her.

They seem okay for today (did them yesterday & day before) but obviously using straighteners will flatten them & I'm worried a hairdryer will make it all fluffy. (Am I making sense?) I was wondering if a) anyone had any technique for treating and using this wool or b) if there was another way that might be better. Also, how do you stop the ends fraying? One bit of dread is twisted and I'm worried it'll untwist and look stupid. I'll post pictures of my creations later but any help would be amazing!!

Thanks very much for sticking with this post for this long!

Pirate hat with Slub dreads 
01:33pm 15/01/2007
  Now I can Keep my wild hair, and Keep my head warm at the same time.

the hat is designed to be worn over existing extentions/falls, or by itself with falls/extentions tied/cliped into it, for a interchangeable instant look. I took a black sock hat, and sewed it into a tube hat, then added the jolly rodger patch to the front. On the inside, I sewed a heavy duty ribbon, and tied some autumn colored wool slub DE extentions into it. walla! Instant Pirate! I'm so proud of myself. (and my daughter loves it too!)
