    The dreads in this video, do you remember or can tell what color/s are these made of? I love the shimmer purple effect!

      They are even more amazing up close! They are premade backcombed dreads in "Twilight" and you can buy DE dreads here: or you can buy SE dreads here: If you were going to build your own dreads, it is a 50/50 mix of a cobalt blue and a neon violet/fuchsia blend. :)
