Roving falls - Second Attempt

Post by hairykiter » Fri Aug 12, 2011 4:16 pm

Hi :)

I made a handful more dreads, split the lot into two, elastic'd them up to make loops and threaded them onto some big wide shoelaces I found, et voila! A pair of dreadfalls! :i2:
I think I have a total of about 40 DEs now.

I went out in public looking like this (briefly) and a lad in a shop walked up to me, all impressed, and said "coooooooll, how long did they take to make?" He was only slightly disappointed when I stage-whispered that they weren't real. Nice confidence boost though, after my bf had wanted me to take them off before going outside :( on the argument that people would stare (as if I'd give a rat's ass if they did!)


.... however. I don't think I quite have the hang of it yet :oops: hope I'd fiddled them into better coverage than this before going out!!!!
How do I fix this? Flatter buns? More fiddling about/dread-pinning/crossing over/tying? More dreads? Different placement?

They look good!! I'd say try to get up to 60DEs, that'll be 30 on each side and will look great.

Cool, thanks :) (transitional practise time, oh yeah ;))

Do bun covers do much? My buns are kind of small and slippery.


By the way, is it common to get a headache from the added weight?

Yeah, a head ache can happen. Whenever I wore falls I'd pin them to DEATH in order to make sure there were no tell tale gaps.

Oh & some people recommend covering buns with lace, tights or wrap a single dread around them for more grip.

I suggest bun covers from my limited experience with hair falls. I always got headaches with falls, even very light ones, so never wore them much. I find installs much, much comfier.
