Hello! Lots of crochet dreads

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.

I am so impressed with how far your work has come! You've mad such a name for yourself and I remember seeing your first sets back in the day! I loveeeeeee the purple set. You have a way with colour.

Great work, love it! But how long does it take for you to make one dread like this? I took me for ages to make this kind of dreads, and I couldn't find a really good tutorial. So, if you know some, please give me a link)))

Ah sorry mona_me, I haven't logged on on here in ages.

It used to take me about 20 minutes per dread but now its about 5 mins, but it all depends on the brand of hair and how easy it is to work with. Here is a link to my tutorial http://blacksunshineiow.blogspot.co.uk/ ... txE_hBFDIV

Your first set of mixed dreads/braids is beautiful. Such lovely work.
