Mermaid dreads (pictures added!)

Forum rules
If it is fake hair related it goes in here!
1) Nice clear pic of the hair- we are not particularly interested in cam whoring - you want to show yourself off - put it in the gallery for 'everything else'.
2) When commenting - please be more OT than "wow you are freakin' hot!" We all like to be told we are hot mamma's - but mention the hair too!
3) Please don't be horrified if people give you helpful criticism. If you give criticism, please do so respectfully.
4) If you would like to NOT hear criticism, please say so.
5) If you are specifically looking to refine your technique, please post it in the "Critique" section (under Advice & Know How) so we can help be extra picky. ;)
6) The Show Off section is only for showing off hair, not making sales. Please make no references to eBay, A and P, or any kind of sales. You may offer the same item for sale in A and P, but no cross linking between A and P and Show Off. Show Off should be a place to comment and encourage each other; we don't want Show Off to become a billboard for sellers.

Mermaid dreads (pictures added!)

Post by Heiaken » Sat Nov 12, 2011 1:05 pm

Some of you might remember me, or at least I hope you do ;) In the past two years I haven't done much with fake hair or dreads but I have a feeling the itch might be coming back. I installed these last night because I got sick and tired of my own hair that I'm trying to grow, it's in a very vonky sort of mullet state now :(

There's self blended petrol green, some black and petrol and black and turquoise swirlies, a few greens, some turquoise dreads and a few blacks. Not sure what the total count is but maybe around 45 (and actually I still have some loose hair under all that since I run out of dreads. I will add better pictures once I had all the hair braided.) I have made all the dreads myself ofc. Some of the dreads are from this kit and some from this kit.

Here's a few more pictures of the set. I changed the place of a few dreads are removed the black ones from the back and added petrol greens instead.

Very cute, nice colours. I feel the same way, I dip in and out nowadays - used to have natural dreads and always used to add fake ones in. Then I cut them off, but I am feeling the itch again now, think I might try natural hair extensions rather than dreads this time.
