wow im amazed that there is a prandi thread.
And amazed that I am the only punjabi on this board it seems.
But back to the issue at hand, the prandi is normally black for everyday wear - so it matches with the hair color, and colorful for events like weddings.
Commonly the way its done is to separate your hair into three sections, and then add the prandi in the three seperations and start braiding. Then when you get to the end, you may choose to place a matching elastic band so its not noticeable if you choose to leave it down.
this us an awesome thread! i just made it all the way through, and you guys have made some really beautiful ones!!!
i came across this one on ebay, and i think it would be absolutely stunning on someone with gray hair!:
i've been looking at this site that someone posted:
but their cheapest shipping is $24 USD and some change appears they have flat rate shipping. as far as ebay and amazon go, I just didnt see any that I loved. It's a shame none of the already made ones would match my haircolor. I guess my only option would be to make my own, but I really dont care for the look of just the yarn hanging from the end of the braid, so I'd like to have some of those gorgeous tassles as well. But they look really hard to make, and I think that by the time I buy all the crafts needed I'd be spending a lot. *sigh*
hey jotekb? what kind of strings are used to make the traditional ones? i see that people here are using yarn, but it looks like some other material for the ones i see online..... and now that you've come out of hiding and joined this thread, i think we may need to pick your brain

The last bit of my hair is layered, and I use Kimberlily's defrizz spray before braiding in the parandi I made, and it worked pretty well for me. The recipe is http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/...read.php?t=277.
I had a thought last night for bunning with this. I haven't actually tried it yet, but it follows on the premise I've used for doing rose buns in the past. Basically you ponytail all your hair and divide it in two. Braid one section, coil it up from the end in a seashell shape, and secure with a stick. Braid the second section with a paranda, wrap it in the opposite direction around the first section, remove the stick and use it to secure the lot. Depending on how slippery your hair is, you might need to tie off the first braid or use some pins or a second stick to secure it all.
