I've been wanting some fake dreads for a while now, so I bought some hair and started to make some.
I still have a pack of hot pink and most of the black hair left, so this isn't completed yet. But I just HAD to post it :]
I think they look okay for my first ones. I cant wait to get them done so I can see how they all look on :P

Ehhrm, how did you make them? They're neat but I think they look like sausage-y "Shirley Temple" curls.

i agree real dreads are messy i was disappointed when i made my first set of dread that they lookeds so scruffy but it then occured to me real dreads are very rarely all neat and tidy so i have some plain twists and some scruffy old lumpy bumpy dreads.
i do get concerned though when they fuse together due to them being so gnarled and synthetic

they are way to neat. as a girl with dreads for the last 2+ years you'll know right off the bat that they are fake because of how utterly neat they are. dreads are messy, they have hair sticking out, fly aways everything and even the best maintence doesn't always get them all. nice but if you want dreads that pass for real, mess 'em up a bit

great! dreads is the one thing I always wanted to try but age/job/husband makes it completely out of the question. Very cool!
