    ok well sooo this is kinda like brave hair - eeeee so wanna see it

    results from taking out synthetic dreadlocks- blanket stitch braid you can learn how to here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxG6U-WuD_E

    you could braid onto rags or spongy noodle rollers?

    i braid deadlock into dry hair with not excessively oiled ends (enough to moisturise and keep them smooth to avoid frizzys and breaking from rubbing) and i wear them about 3 weeks
    but you could braid damp hair up this way sleep on it and take out next day when dry

    just for contrast pic of my hair not fresh out of dreads

    answer, no i dont get damage or breakage - i am gentle with my hair the worse i get is my hair tends to stay in sections for several days even with washing and moisturising

    and just for fun hair in the dreads

    ^ Those curls turned out great! And they look really close to the Brave girl's!

    Can I call this hip?

    I second paper bag curls, really tight & small sections. Mousse or salt spray would work great for hold.

    Odonata your hair is amazing! Love the colour

    Oh, wow! That is gorgeous! I have to try it first! How thick are the dreads you use? Doing it with rags should be good.

    Try this! Just use smaller sections. This girl has a handful of "heat-free" curling tuts as well

    I want to curl my hair with baby wipes per this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5T6JyPzeqE but am wondering....do baby wipes have silcone in them? I don't use a lot of cones, but if baby wipes are full of them, maybe normal rag curls are better for me....

    I don't think they have cones but I do believe some have alcohol, which can be very drying.

    Oh thanks! I actually ended up not using the baby wipes...too small for the big sections and curls I wanted (my hair ends up being too much for the wipes even when in small sections...darn it). I'm now sitting here about to go to bed with five socks in my hair hoping for some big curls.....

    rag curls? My hair always comes out wild and crazy with rag curls. Its why I prefer bandana curls/waves.
