1. Expected soon: hats, patches and liquid filled piercing jewelry

Within a few weeks we expect to receive the ribbed hats again, with a new colour added: light grey. Furthermore we will get iron-on patches and pretty piercing jewelry for your stretched earlobes: like handmade liquid filled spirals and coils. These are real pretty, so keep checking the website! An impression of the expected new items:

2. Headwraps!

Dreadwraps (or "head wraps") are an unbeatable hit in the webshop! You can wear them in many ways and they are not just for people with dreads. If you've got hair that is difficult to style, you can just grab a headwrap on a bad hair day!

Because the headwraps are quite popular and Dreadspullen is the exclusive importer, a new website has been launched: Headwraps.nl. Here you will find the same headwraps as on dreadspullen.nl, but there are more photo's and links. Shops considering to expand their product line with headwraps, can also visit headwraps.nl.

It can be a bit hard when you want to use a headwrap for the first time, but take your time to practise a little! To help you out, a tutorial can be found online. But there are more things you can do with a headwrap. This is a very good start with multiple methods: Fotki.com/CongoBrava. More links can be found at Headwraps.nl.

The headwrap here on the left is one that consists of 3 colour blocks. I first put my dreadlocks in a high ponytail and twisted my dreadlocks a bit around the elastic. Then I wrapped the headwrap tightly around my head and tucked in the ends. Some dreadlocks stuck out a bit so I just put them back in to make it look less messy. Good luck!


3. New products: veggie DreadFX, beads, new colours felting wool

I've been adding new products on pretty much a daily basis, so this is just a small selection of the new additions:

4. Sweatshop free and unique: the homemade products from Dreadspullen.nl

Because of your demand for large showercaps for dreadheads, and the fact that regular XL / superize showercaps found elsewhere are not particulary large either, I decided to design and make them myself! In the meanwhile the assortment of homemade products has been expanded further with some nice headbands. These are pretty wide, so you can for example wear them in combination with a high ponytail like on the 3rd photo here:

Some of the products that are Made by Dreadspulllen:

Green showercap with lace (very large)

€ 14,90
Wide dark blue-white striped headband

€ 5,90
Wide dark purple headband with retro flowers

€ 6,90
