    hay ,
    i have dreads and i cant just tuck my hair behind my ears. Sometimes i put it up in a bandana,pony tail, or pigtails but it flattens some of them. any ideas for a gentle way to keep my hair outa my face? i cant stand it, especially when im eating. its too short to pull the few peices in the front back( its above my shoulders).

    thanks for any ideas

    headsocks, or a tam perhaps! Or if they are long enough you can use chopsticks(headsticks) in a "bun" of sorts:)

    find a huge t-shirt and cut the sleeve off...and use that as a headband.

    I have the same problem :p I know all the things 'bout headbands, tams etc (and I do have them) but when I need them they're nowhere to find :p

    But why don't you visit the knotty know-how forum:

    i think putting them back in a ponytail looks the best...better than letting them hang (just my opinion)....all your options have been said so take your pick....or.....CHOP EM!! haha

  10. Eh up.

    I have a similar problem - not dreads, but lots of curly hair. I've found that a buff (in headband form) works really well and doesn't look too absurd.

    I hope you find something that works, mate. :)


  11. i used to tie them onto longer ones temporairlyand pull them back and tie all the dreadies together instead of using a hair tie
