What Do You Mean By Dreadlocks (Braids)?

Hair matting forms rope-like, coarse-textured portions of hair that resemble dreadlocks. They come from Buddhist, Rastafarian, Senegalese, Aztec, and ancient Greek traditions. Dreadlocks are worn by people of different sexes, faiths, tribes, and ethnicities. However, they are most frequently linked with African origin.

The best approach to developing dreadlocks is to entirely disregard your hair, not even brushing, cutting, or combing it. However, it takes a long time until your hair mattes and gives you the ideal appearance. Additionally, you may dreadlock your hair using various techniques including backcombing, twisting, and dread braiding.

To make beautiful dreadlocks, you need the following:

  • Shampoo without residue

  • Blowdryer

  • Dividing clips

  • Elastic bands

  • A comb with fine teeth

  • Hair wax for dreadlocks

Making Dreadlocks With Backcombing Method

Wash your hair thoroughly. Before you dreadlock your hair, you must wash it with good residue-free shampoo. This shampoo thoroughly cleanses your hair of all oil and debris buildup while making sure there is no residual buildup (the way a regular shampoo would).

Blowing-drying Your Hair

Blow dry your hair in all directions—up, down, and side to side. The secret is to give your hair as much volume as you can. Before you begin dreadlocking, you should make sure there are no damp hair strands present.
