How to make dreadlocks: 7 easy steps & useful tips

1. Get The Essentials

You will need to call your friend (or even a couple of them!) before you start since you will need the help of someone else!

Next step, collect all the essentials:

· dread wax;

· a special shampoo without conditioning ingredients;

· elastics and hair clips;

· a sturdy comb with thin teeth;

· a blow dryer;

· an old spoon;

· a nail brush to clean up;

· a towel that you no longer use for cleaning your hands from wax.

2. Wash Your Head Twice

Apply shampoo or pre-dreading soap twice to your hair to wash it really well. This is an essential step if you really want to have permanent dreadlocks.

4. Section Your Hair

· Part your hair into sections beginning from the back of your neck.

· Continue your way up clipping the sections in order to secure hair strands.

· Dread one strand at a turn.

· As soon as you finish dreading the strands at the nape, do the same to the hair above the row following a brick-lay pattern.

· Never go for a center part because this way all your hair will get tangled.

5. Back Combing and Twisting

· Take a strand of hair and put the comb about 2.5 cm from the hair roots.

· Next, comb your hair to the back in the direction of your scalp to create a tangle.

· Work through by pushing the tangles up to the scalp and then from the roots while bringing the comb down to the tip to form a tight and homogenous texture. Repeat this for all the strands.

· The tangled knots at the hair roots will facilitate the new hair to dread in a natural way.

· As soon as all the strands are tangled and knotted, just give them cylindrical shapes by twisting.

· Apply high quality dread wax while twisting.

· Take very small amounts of wax and apply them through the dreaded strands evenly in order to glue the loose hair.
