dreadlocks - Methods

How to Dread - Methods:

Backcombing: You will need:
Dread Wax
Dread Shampoo
Dread Comb
Rubberbands
We recommend the Knotty Boy Dread Kit - It has everything you need and guarantee your hair will dread.
1. Wash your hair with a residue free shampoo and let it air dry.
2. Section your hair into sections that are 1 inch by 1 inch. You can use rubberbands to hold the sections while you section the rest of your hair.
3. Start in the back of your head, remove the rubberbands and start teasing the hair towards your scalp. Only backcomb about a half inch of hair at a time, this will keep your dreads from forming loops.
4. Once you have finished backcombing that section of hair, put a rubberband on the tip and one on the root. Add about an M&M's worth of wax to the dreadlock and palm roll it.
5. Do this to all the sections of hair.

Twist and Rip: You will need:
Dread Wax
Dread Shampoo
Rubberbands
We recommend the Knotty Boy Wax and Shampoo.
1. Section your hair into sections that are 1 inch by 1 inch. You can use rubberbands to hold the sections while you section the rest of your hair.
2. When you are washing your hair rub your head in a clockwise motion.
3. Once you get out of the shower and your hair is dry pull your hair apart in the sections where the rubberbands are.
4. After you have pulled apart the sections add an M&M's worth of wax to each dread and palm roll.

Dread Wax
Dread Shampoo
Rubberbands
We recommend the Knotty Boy Wax and Shampoo.
1. Wash your hair with the dread shampoo and let it air dry.
2. Section your hair into sections that are 1 inch by 1 inch. You can use clips to hold the sections while you section the rest of your hair.
3. After you have sectioned off all of your hair, take one section down at a time and twist it, then put some wax on the twist and keep twisting until the twist is twisting down into a ball on your head.
