Lovely to meet another curly-haired fiend  Wink

Having a head-full of natural curly locks is no problem. I mean, this is me on the left without them in

Well, to start with there are two ways to wear the dreads
falls - the dreads are sewn together and worn over two buns. The effect looks like two pigtails of dreads
loose - each dread is individually plaited into hair.

Falls are such that they're styled, worn out for the day, and are taken out at night. On the other hand, when I plait my head full of loose dreads, I leave them in for almost a month.

So to answer your question - sometimes I do, sometimes I don't  Wink

I really like the natural looking ones with a little color. How do you attach them to your head?

I am also really really wondering about these. I also like the natural looking ones with a little colour.
I am wondering where, if anywhere, I could have this done since I am really terrible with hair and probably couldnt help my own hair to save my soul.! When you plait it how does it come out? how long is it before you can see actual regrowth?

I love the leaves and the natural looking ones and the unnatural ones, pretty much all of them.

Question:
I bought some yarn falls at a Ren. fair this summer, they are pretty much just a bunch of yarn looped onto hair elastics. I cannot figure out how to wear them without my regular hair sticking out from underneath. How do your falls go on over the hair, because I love the way they look and really want a set, but don't want to look silly.

There are a few tutorials online as to how to plait in loose dreads. When you want to take out the dreads, simply unplait your hair. Unlike real dreads you don't need to shave them off Wink

I find this is the clearest   -   http://www.angelfire.com/scary/mazzmatazz/
this is the most detailed   -   http://www.afrocare.com/trd/pages/steps/ESD/index.html
and this is my favourite technique (although it is more difficult than the usual style)   -   http://www.picturetrail.com/gid5184176

I don't have a tutorial on hand that shows how to wear falls. Basically they are made to be worn over the top of buns (either 1 or 2)
Hmm, I'll need to get to work on making a picture demonstration for that

What I do to make sure my hair doesn't stick out underneath is when I put my hair into buns, I put a hairnet over each one (well, I  use knee-high fishnet stockings with a knot tied in the end Grin). It keeps all my real hair out of the way. Then I put the falls on top and if the buns show underneath, I get some kirbi grips (aka bobby pins) and pin some of the "hair" from the falls onto them.
