Q:

How do you add dreadlock extensions?

A:

Quick Answer

Part the hair in sections and make parts wet at the back. Apply copious amounts of gel on the section which will first receive the first dreadlock and place it in one hand, making a 'T' configuration and wrap the section of hair clockwise three times, with the wrapping done as close to the root as possible. Braid the hair for two rounds and continue wrapping thrice down the length of the original hair, adding more extensions depending on the length needed. Dab gel to the dreadlock and repeat the process for all sections. Know More
