Estimate the length and condition of your hair. After twisting, the size of the strands will decrease by a third, so 15 cm is the minimum hair length for this hairstyle.

Wash your head with soap a day before dreadlocks. Do not use the conditioner to make hair more difficult to tangle. In beauty salons, weave a slight perm for this purpose before weaving.
Divide the hair into strands approximately with the index finger. The optimal number is 20-50 strands. At the base of each dreadlocks should be a square with a side of one and a half centimeters or less. Separate strands secure with hairpins or thin elastic bands. Carefully divide the hair, so that short hairs from one site do not fall on the other, otherwise dreadlocks can "grow togetherAt the roots.
Use a special comb with denticles of different lengths to create naches. Carefully scratch each strand, moving from the tips of hair to the roots. This procedure may take several hours. The denser you scratch your hair, the better your dreadlocks will be.
Twist each strand, rubbing it with your hands, until it turns into a dense hair harness. For the volume to the dreadlocks, woolen threads can be added at this stage.
Сформируйте округлые кончики дредов. Для этого тщательно начешите каждый кончик, закрутите его и плотно закрепите резинкой на расстоянии 1 см от конца. Каждый дред тщательно обработайте по всей длине воском для волос.
For two weeks, roll each strand daily, once or twice. Wash hair with soap or natural shampoo. Do not use conditioner or balm. After two weeks, remove the gums from the tips of the hair.
