DIY: Single Ended (SE) Wrapped Dreads Created On Client

Wrapped SE Dreads:

Learn how to create wrapped se dreadlocks for the most believable installation.

Items Needed:
Jumbo Braid
Tail Comb
Latch Hook Tool

1. Carve off a section of hair.
2. Using Jumbo Braid, create a simple extension braid with the natural hair.
3. After a few turns, split the natural hair and extension hair in two.
4. Combine one of each together and continue braiding.
5. Once the braid is slightly longer than the natural hair, backcomb a small amount of the fiber so that the braid does not unravel.
6. If you are doing a full head, braid the rest of the hair in this manner before moving onto the next step.
7. Use a latch hook to pull extension fiber through the braid at the base.
8. Put the two legs of the fiber together and add a bit of backcombing.
9. Wrap the fiber around the the braid creating a casing.
10. Once past the braid, backcomb all the fiber together so the transition is as smooth as possible.
11. Backcomb the extension fiber to the tips.
12. Starting at the base, twist and use a steam method to seal each dreadlock.

      It's not, but they are on the rare side. We use Jiffy Steamers and this is a Jiffy Wig Steaming Attachment. :)

      Ironically, I'm in NYC today, but I'm not taking appointments. I'm not sure who is booking for that service here. If you make it to Florida or Washington state I can get you hooked up!

      I'm not taking clients for this method at this time. I know of a few people who are doing synthetic dread work, but not sure if they will do this method specifically. You could try contacting Kelli at or Quincy's girls at Strandz Salon in Spokane Valley.
