      Do you mean color black or on ethnic hair? And what style of dread extensions? The same ones in this video?

    What is the preferred method when the hair and the SE dread extension are about the same length? Do you braid all the way down? (because it seems like the dread would all be covered then) Do you have a video of this same install method when hair is long?

      There is a method called "blanket stitch" where the natural hair stays more concentrated at the root base - as you are 100% right, it would change your dreads into looking more like braids, which can defeat the look you are going for. There is a video for that if you look at the synthetic installation videos. If you wanted to use it with the o-ring style hair, you absolutely could. :)
