Dreadlocks are matted ropes of hair. There are several ways that you can form dreads in your hair. This is a list of the most popular ways to create locks.
The backcombing method gives you permanent dreadlocks. You should only attempt this method of styling if you know you want dreadlocks for sure. Once dreads are in your hair, they are impossible to remove without cutting the hair. Your hair needs to be at least three inches long to use this method. Using a special comb, backcomb sections of hair starting from the scalp. Continue until all hair is as tight as possible. Secure with a rubber band, or you can use dread wax for better security. Repeat the same steps on all sections of hair. It will take three to four months for the dread to be done, and they will smooth and tighten over time.
If your hair were between two to nine inches in length, the twisting method would be best suited for you.
Divide hair into sections; choose one of the sections to start with. Split this segment of hair into two equal strands, and then twist the strands over one another. Use wax to hold the twist as you go. You can also try rolling the strands together in your palm; apply a small amount of wax when using this method.
If your hair is less than two inches long, you probably do not think that dreads would work for you. However, this is not true! The brush rubbing method is the method to use for hair shorter than two inches.
This method is easy and requires a small amount of time to complete. As described about, divide hair into sections. Choose one sections to begin with, and twist that segment clockwise or anticlockwise. Keep twisting until it is unable to twist any further, and add a small amount of wax to the hair. Hair should double over onto itself.
