Ready made DE kits [Nov. 21st, 2012|10:14 am]
Fake Hair is Luff

synth_sanity
I just got a rather unfortunate hair cut and would love to throw some DE in there to hide it, but my cat has apparently destroyed my last set. I can't seem to find any suppliers I am familiar with who offer pre-made kits anymore, only customer orders. Which, would be lovely, but I don't want to walk around with bad hair for 2-6 weeks. Does anyone have a supplier recommendation for me? I am located in Toronto so someone in North America would be preferred for timeliness.

Dread installers in England [May. 18th, 2012|12:56 pm]
Fake Hair is Luff

I'm moving from Canada to England in August for grad school and I am looking for someone who is able to install double ended dreads.  I'm not 100% as to which area I am moving to, but most likely either Manchester or Leicester, but I am willing to travel if necessary.  Any help is welcome.

Wire Hair Extensions? [Jan. 29th, 2012|02:27 pm]

I was wondering if anyone here could help me find wire hair extensions like these. So far these are the only ones I can find, and the shade of brown offered isn't quite what I'm looking for. I've found similar looking wig extensions, but WITHOUT the wiring, which is crucial for me. I have shorter hair and want to use these as fake buns, but I can't use drawstring bun extensions that are meant to be placed over your own hair buns. I need extensions you can attach via, say, an alligator clip.

Thanks!

question about extensions. [Jan. 26th, 2012|05:55 pm]

I've been making falls for years, but for the first time, I decided to braid a full head of single enders into my head. What's the best way to wash my scalp while I have them in? I don't want to get the dreads saturated with water, as that would be extremely heavy and uncomfortable.

An Experiment in Straightening Kanekalon Jumbo Braid - Photos! [Dec. 17th, 2011|02:30 pm]
Fake Hair is Luff

Hi guys! So being home for Christmas has left me with an awful lot of time on my hands, so what else is there to do but play around with fake hair!

I've been toying with the idea of making a synthetic wig from scratch for NYE (the one I ordered won't get here in time - damn back orders!) I generally prefer shopping at local suppliers rather than online because of the instant gratification. I also feel more at ease being able to actually see the color I'm buying. The problem is, the stores I go to have pretty slim pickings when it comes to the colors available in KK silky braid. So I have to resort to using Kanekalon Jumbo Braid. I want the hair to be smooth and not kinky like it is when it comes straight out of the package, and I've heard you can straighten it to be almost as smooth as silky straight...

So I was goofing around with different methods I've read about and came out with some interesting results that some of you might find helpful:



From left to right: Untouched KK Jumbo Braid, Jumbo Braid spritzed with water and straightened with a hair dryer on medium, and Jumbo Braid straightened with steam heat



The sample straightened with steam heat even has some shine to it now! I'm not sure if it's AS soft/shiny as KK silky straight, but it's a lot better than the original. If anybody can attest to how it compares to silky straight, let me know! It seems like steam heat is always the better choice when dealing with KK braid.

Thanks for looking! Sorry if this is old news to a lot of you - I just wanted to get this community moving T__T

Quick question for all you beautiful people [Dec. 11th, 2011|05:31 pm]

Good evening fakehair-ies! I am looking for some help regarding wool dreads with braid in installation. Recently, I have started wearing wool dreads that I make and install myself. I have had a lot of positive feedback from them, and a couple of requests to do them for others. My question is, where to start? How much should I be charging in this beginning stage for supplies, work and installation? Any and all information would be extremely helpful. Thanks so much!

Satelina Perfect synthetic hair has hundreds of stolen photos [Sep. 9th, 2011|09:34 pm]
Fake Hair is Luff

dreadviolet
The site http://vkontakte.ru/ has at least three groups that include hundreds of stolen pictures and not just for inspiration: there are people trying to sell their work by your images.

Group 1)
This group http://vkontakte.ru/club16674271
--> run by Valeria Olkashina: http://vkontakte.ru/id11012364
249 photos


2) Satelina Perfect Synthetic Hair
http://vkontakte.ru/club10072542
---> run by Alessa Satelina Borisova: http://vkontakte.ru/satelina
1171 photos... o_O

Satelina is also in Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=254903237272


So this Satelina does this kind of business...


3) Sweet Hair Extensions
http://vkontakte.ru/club26775930
--> run by Jeanne Kutyrev?
321 photos
- In this group LS7 has her own, named album.
- She does state that content of one album is "work she wants to copy", and I don't recognize the photos she claims her own work. It seems, that she is not trying to sell other people's work, but still using too many photos without permission.
