spice up the dreads
This is easy,cheap,fun and looks great!
I use to do this to my dreads since I got my first one 3-4 years ago!
I used white embroidery floss,but I did some previous ones all colorful and they looked awesome!Ill post some pics of them later too.
If you dont have dreads,you could braid your hair and do the same.
