Here goes,
My name is Sky, i am a dreadmaker and natural dread upkeeper.

I had my first set a few years ago but have put them in and out a few times with various real hair extentions.
Currently making another set of extensions for myself between work.

I am a WAHM to two fur babies and two beach babies.

I love anything sparkly and purple/black/teal.

I love sunshine but hate the heat, love snow hate the cold. So, if somebody could create warm snow, that would make my day!

if anybody fancies happy post swapping I am game! who doesn't like happy stuff in the snail mail? :D

Hello nice ta meetcha <3 :i9:

During my life I've had natural dreads twice, the first time I dreaded my butt-length hair (including bangs)... since then I've had mostly short hair except for the sides in front of the ears--just my style, you know?

I've been interested in synth dreads for a very long time but there was and still is limited suppliers here in canada to make them. I finally got some money together to start a year ago, and have been enjoying them since.

So I'm not new to dreads but new to synthetics! I'm glad I found this place, it's awesome!

I'm not usually good at forums but I'm also not good at lurking. lol :i10: <3

see you around~

Hi my name is Angel and I love dread falls. I have made them out of wool, yarn, and tulle. I'd like to try synthetic hair and cyberlox (I think I spelled that right.).

hallo fancy peoples. I'm Elly (a.k.a. "Elleh" to those who feel so inclined)
Im basically a nordic unicorn queen (according to my two year old) who has only just begun the fabulous dread/faux hair journey (read: n00b)
About a month ago something triggered me to want to know more about synthetic dreads - to this day I cannot remember WHAT it was. Fast forward over the next few days that consisted of furious research and crash-course style absorption of technique and style and I had already begun chopping up cheap wigs because I was too impatient to wait for my fibre to arrive.

Fast forward even MOAR (now we're present day) and I've made one full set, that fits my head at least (mohawk etc), with moderate success. I had fibre enough lined up for two new kits, but I found out the hard way that certain brands and colors just.do.not.want.to.seal. So. I now have a set of dreads, fibre for another, and a headful of silver braids. Wooo..?

I'm also waiting on my steamer to get here (1300W - bought after reading up on steamers and wattage on here, so I'm assuming 1300W will be plenty powerful for sealing), so, that should be fun. Bf isn't too happy that I've been using his prized iron to seal dreads *whoopsies*

Have a ratty quality shot of me in my first ever set. Huzzah

:shock:

So I guess a re-introduction may be necessary.

My name's Anne, I live in Aberdeen now with my husband and two cats, I still fly kites but haven't done much kitebuggy racing over the past couple of years due to work. I work offshore, mostly on boats in the North Sea but have been on a few platforms as well. It's a glamorous lifestyle :P which involves quite a bit of hard-hat wearing, so no dreads for me for quite some time.

Currently awaiting an assessment from the Occupational Health to see if I'm going to be taking a break from offshore work due to pregnancy, so hey maybe I'll get to stay home and have dreads!!!
So give me a shout if you do installs in Aberdeenshire or nearby-ish. i.e. Scotland ;)

Hi all! I am now old enough to get to be tattooed and pierced and a big ole hippie mama! Just got my first set of dreads put in, a mixture of synthetics I bought on etsy and wool braids I made, boiled, and rolled myself. The only hair long enough for attachment was on the top of my head (I'd been sporting an undercut) so I'm dealing with some styling issues as well as blank spots because my natural hair is soooo thin. I'm using white powder right now to fill in where my scalp shows (hair dyed platinum, synthetics are white) but may make some more super thin wool dreads to fill in. Need to balance thickness and not overwhelming my thin hair to get breakage. So excited to be here and get all geeked out on hair stuff!
