    i was wondering...

    how can i put stoof in my hair?? i'd love to put blinky lights and bells in my hair for festivals and concerts and such, but i dont have dreads... if i did it would make it a lot easier, just stick in the dread and go!

    but i have blonde, straight hair, and as hard as i try i cant find a way to get these things in my hair!


    any ideas people!?

    Heya theres loads of ways to put things in, either tiny little bands OR sewing them in OR attatching things like how you would false hair in braids.

    Tiny little bands:- You can get these from all different places, things like feathers, beads etc will hold in with these, i DONT recomend using them near your roots.

    Sewing:- mights sound stupid but i used to do it. When i braided my hair in little plats (its dreadlocked now so no more) i would tie the end by threading a needle and sewing throught the middle and round one side a few times then through the middle and round the other side then id go through one of them sides and do the same from the side... if that akes sence (i'll try and do some pics for these for you in a bit.)

    Attatching like false hair:- this works with ribbons, string, thread, zips, fals hair, fabris scraps anyhting that long (and you could sew bells etc onto the ribbon etc)
    Its basically done with a four way platt at the root for a few cycles then re split the lot into a three way platt to the bottom, you can either keep the ribbon bits in the platt or leave them out so just your hair does the three way platt and the ribbon hangs loose. Its important to do the 4 way platt bit or else the ribbon slides out of the platt.

    i'll try and do you some pictures.

    Braids. Make sure they're tight, though, or the stoof'll fall out. :p If you want your hair to stay straight, but you want stuff in it, then only braid some of it, like a few little african braids, and stick stuff in those. Before my dreads, I did that.

    assuming you want to do little braids...

    1-braid your hair half way down or so, til the point where you want your hawt stuff in your hair.
    2-take one of the 3 strands of hair
    3-thread whatever it is you want onto it
    4-continue braiding, making sure that you add to the braid BELOW the item, rather than on top(this pushes the item down)

    Does that make sense?

    Well, If you want braids with like, ribbon and stuff in them, then when you seperate the three chunks you're braiding, tie a ribbon to one of the chunks and braid it in. If you want to stick stuff onto your braid, just make a nice, tight braid and stick whatever you want in. Like Fleassy said, you can sew beads and stuff into braids.

    do you think that if i put some small braids in my hair and braid a ribbon in with them with bells at the end, that that would work??

    Ummm ribbon with small braids wont work, make the hair strands the same thickness as the ribbon if you want them platted along the braid, otherwhys then yea i guess it would :)

    try just mucking about with it, thats how i worked it out.

    Well, this is what i used to do with my hair when i wanted it more colorful, it took yarn and braided it into my hair, and we but glow in the dark-beads at the end, and some plastic strings too. :)

    here's how my hair looked then.

    Yeah. when i was at a tranceparty, people would just come and tell me that my hair was awesome and pulling it 'n stuff. but it was kinda hard to sleep with it sometimes. :p

    same when i was in canada, old ladies would just come and pull my hair to see if it was real and then run away. soo cute. :p

    But yeah, my real hair is showing, but i didnt really mind, since my friend did it for free. 9 hours of work. i think it looks super duper great for that amount of money. ;)
