18 Inch Synthetic Backcombed SE Dreads | 10 Pk
We genuinely cannot say enough good things about these dreads. A solid, durable core keeps the locks looking pretty till the cows come home (We don’t know where the cows went originally, but you get it). Plus each of the colors is multi-dimensional, giving each dreadlock an incredible finished look!
These beautiful handmade dreadlocks are ready to ship at a moment's notice! Embellish with beads or rock them au natural, you’re sure to turn every head within sight of your locks. The durable core in these backcombed dreadlocks means they’ll hold up for multiple uses. The flow down to a lovely tapered end plus the multi-dimensional colors will give you a wonderfully natural finish!

Such a hard question. Its a pale baby pink, but is very slightly rosey. Its really pretty, but completely hard to describe. Like a slightly peach baby pink if that makes sense.
Solid maybe, but they are pretty sturdy.
The best covers would be blends - as the dreads are mixtures. For Prom Queen - Lavender Ice or a blend of Evening Lilac and Lavender Ice. For Cuppycake I would try Soft Blush and Rose Platinum.
We do not recommend cutting them to make them shorter. You can cut the crochet dreads shorter and simply comb out the ends, but not so easily with our backcombed dreads.
You could do that, but I find that to get good coverage, I like to do the single braid in method, rather than crochet. If you like your installs large and in charge, then these will work great!
It really depends on how you want your style to look, but for DE dreads we generally say 5, but for SE you'll need a bit more. 7 or 8 should be good for a full look.
They are in between a regular pen and sharpie thickness. So not too thick, not too thin. :) If you send us a text (number is on the top of the page), we can send you pictures next to some things for reference.
You can. Personally, I don't think acidic rinses make much of a difference, but other people seem to disagree. Most people use white vinegar - it will not damage the dread at all. :)
It means you get ten in each pack you buy. :)
We would expect these to exceed that expectation and then some. I have several clients on their 3rd usage of these dreads and going strong!
They are coming! They should be arriving in a week or so. We are just waiting on the factory to finish them up and ship them.
There are several methods you could use to install SEs. Check out our tutorial section under Synthetic Dreads. Scroll down and you will find the installation section and see your options.
Not easily - you would have to razor them and reseal them, and it would be a fair amount of work. The crochet dreads can be cut and the ends brushed out and dipped, just not the backcombed because of the spiral seal.
Keeping them in is no problem at all - though I generally redo mine around the 1.5 month mark to avoid annoying floppy grow out. That said, you can always get away with longer if you cover the base with scarves to hide the growout. Getting them wet...
