Yeah, they will be, when you first make them they are really puffy and big, they get smaller over time but i would hold off until after the shows.
When i first put mine in i couldn't fit in my helmet anymore Sad

Innerbuddhist, its a good thing if your dreads are doing that, it means they are getting tighter at the roots and it will help them out. you can backcomb them all you want but it isn't going to stay in. Have patience  Smiley

So, what's your opinion about embroidering through canvas chucks?  Been meaning to work on an old pair to see if I like it or not, just seems really cumbersome going through the shoe shape... Love to hear your opinion...

I thought it wasn't hard, there are some parts you cant go through though like the back where there is that big nothingness spot and in the very front where the orange ends because its too thick.
But the rest was easy. And fun Smiley

ummm okay, so I'm having a problem with dandruff. I wash about once a week. sometimes like every week and a half. anyways yeah so i have a little of a dandruff issue. I've been thinking that just about everybody with dreads has dandruff because the locks hold down the dead skin cells trying to escape from your scalp. but i don't know. if anyone has any tips on taking care of dandruff (without messing up my locks), it would be much appreciated.

Mix up some apple cider vinegar with water and pour it over your head in the shower, it works like a charm for me. If it isn't working use less water.

lol I went to classes this morning and you should've seen the looks Cheesy Man if I had  a nickel.
Welcome to my life Smiley


Any other ideas on how I can get them to lock up quicker?

The only thing that will actually make them lock up is time. Time, time, and more time.
But if you aren't worried about them getting tighter and knotting up, and just need them to look more presentable you could palm roll with aloe, that will make them look round and tidy for when you need it. Crochet hook also works to pull in loose hairs but it looks really weird, like, you can tell when someone has been crocheting i think.

WOw, those look really comfy,would you mind sharing how you did them? i'd love to make me some...


Well i dont use patterns when i make stuff but how i make mine is (hopfully this makes enough sense)
Get your two pieces of fabric and fold it hotdog style, then at the top on the side with the crease measure like..3 inches out and like...8 inches down, then cut out that rectangle you just measured.
unfold the fabric and sew around the rectangle you just cut out (make sure its inside out.)
so then you unfold the fabric and turn it the other way, opposite or how it sits naturally and its like pants without the sides sewn up. sew the sides up and make the top either drawstring or wrap around...
Maybe that makes sense?
Here, i drew a picture, the red is were it is sewn. the first pic it a side view and the second is a front view...in the second part the red lines look wonky though, that's just cus i suck at drawing with a mouse...
