I found a bare paper bag scrap book which would help me create what I want, annoyed really because I'd just bought one of those photo album type scrap books. Grrrr. Anyway I no longer need rolls of backing paper I guess I can just buy sheets. I didn't think "backing paper" was regional Roll Eyes Does double sided or sticky back mean anything to ya?

Hopefully I can get started on it this weekend so I'll update my progress with it. I suppose I'm making a  couple scrap book of me and my husband, married life and our pets.

One more question, I've bought a plain scrap book and I want to decorate the front and make it look awesome. I've tried searching eBay for rolls of backing paper but no results. All I can find is sheets. Is there anywhere online that sells rolls?

Hi everyone, I'm a complete noob when it comes to scrapbooking, what kind of size should I be looking at to document my marriage using photos, tickets, buttons and material. I'd be adding to it all the time. Would 12 x 12inches by too big to use or should I go smaller? What do you guys use when scrapbooking? Thanks

I completely agree with you souldier about what works for you many not work for others. I find that wax is really helpful and I also love dreadheadhq whilst I'm not keen on knotty boy. I do take other people's suggestions on board and I do try them out but  some just don't work. I swear by Dreadhead HQ's locking spray and their wax while others hate them.

with my last set of dreads I used residue shampoo's such as lo'real and the like and found they had no effect on my dreads as some sites stated they would. I've tried the knotty boy soap bar and I hated it!! It just wouldn't  lather up and it never left my scalp clean, now I'm using dreadhead's shampoo and I love it

Well, the dread tool is advertised on dreadhead HQ and being the cheapskate I am I went to see if I could get it on ebay which I found.

I just dont have a clue what to do with it now I have it. I did get some bamboo crochet hooks that havent come yet so If I try Irish chicky's method I might do alright.

I've also noticed that some people have had trouble dying dreaded hair. I've never had a problem with dying my dreads so I thought I should put a few tips to help people.

First of all you'll need two (possibly 3 if you're using the 88ml vegan dyes such as star gazer) dye packs. Dye just your roots first with the first pack. Then use the second pack to dye your dreads. The second pack should cover all your dreads with a lil left over to cover parts you might have missed.

Rinsing the dye can be a complete nightmare I've found it helps if you have a bath while the dye sets to work. Then when the time is up, completely submerge your hair in the bath water (you can do this completely clean bath water but I find that having a bath at the same time saves water.

You'll find that submerging your hair in the water cuts the rinsing time from maybe 45 mins down to 15. Smiley

Does anyone know how to use a dread tool for pulling in loose hairs? I've bought one but it just doesnt seem to be able to grip the hair

hello_dreadhead...s eriously...try aloe (either buy some gel, or grow your own)
I've also found lime juice is great for tightening them...A mix of aloe and lime is great Smiley It's much easier to wash out than wax, is all natural, and smells great!

Yeah People have told me about aloe. I'm looking into it right now. Thanks for the lime tip I might use it in a homemade locking spray  Cheesy Your hair colour is gorgeous by the way!! I'm so jealous!
