Dreadlock extensions are simply quite amazing and I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you have short hair but want long dreads and can't wait to grow your hair, then dread extensions are the only way to go. If you have cut your dreads and want them back with immediate length, dread extensions will do the job. If you still have your old dreads, they can be cleaned up and re-attached as dread extensions if you find you miss them.
Also if you don't have a lot of hair and want more volume, adding dread extensions to the new (or existing dreads) will give you the exact look you want! Talk about versatile! And the best thing is, when dread extensions are created and attached by a good hook Loctician, you would never even know it wasn't all your own real hair, because they're seamless. Have a look at some photos below of one of my client's dread extensions.
Moonika had a medium amount of fairly fine hair, that fell to just below her shoulders. Dreading her hair as it is, she would have lost about 3 cm, keeping the tips open and her dreads would come to the neckline of her blouse. She wanted long dreads hanging down to the small of her back with lovely flowing tips. So that's just what we gave her!
After a phone/email or live consultation we ascertain how many dreads will be made in your hair. Next we order ethically sourced 100% human hair extensions that we custom lock to your preferred width and style. Here's the 42 babies ready for Moonika. The great thing is that we do all this work OFF your head so that you are only sitting still for the minimum time possible!
The process of locking the hair on the head and creating a seamless, strong connection takes between 6 and 12 hours depending on the length of your hair and how many dreads we are making and joining. We only use the Divine Hand & Hook method to ensure the dreads are natural, well locked & product free!
I am currently in the early stages of creating a course on DREAD EXTENSIONS. It will involve all aspects of making and joining dread extensions to existing dreads and also perhaps how to make dread extensions with loops that can just be added to normal hair or dreads to create volume! There will be info on where to find the hair, which types to buy, how to separate the hair into the right amounts to make dreadlocks of different widths and how to join dread extensions in a professional way so that the join is not only strong but seamless.
It's quite funny, when I teach anything relating to dreadlocks, I realise that this skill is much more complex than it seems at first. There's a lot to know as there's many different aspects to each dreadlock process.
