How long does my hair need to be?
For our dubble ended wooldreads you’ll need at least finger length of hair to braid with.
Which length of wooldreads should I go with?
Hats ‘n Dreads wool dreads are available in 4 sizes:
S: 60 cm / 24 inch
M: 80 cm / 31 inch
L: 100 cm / 39 inch
XL: 120 cm / 47 inch
Our wool dreads are double ended. This means that one 120 cm dread gives you two 60 cm dreads when braided in.
For braiding them in between your own hair: to get a nonchalant look choose dreads that are a bit longer than your own hair. For a more coherent style go with the length your hair has now.
How many wooldreads would I need?
For a full head of dreads most people use about 60 dreads
It depends on the size of hair sections you use. Little sections means you’ll need more dreads, with a voluminous result. Bigger sections means less dreads.
For people with lots of hair and/or thick hair making smaller sections is easy. For people with thinner or less hair, the sections must be divided in such a way that you’ll have enough hair to braid in a dread with.
How do I take care of my dreads?
Wooldreads are easy! You can wash them together with your own hair with regular shampoo. Be mindful not to use any conditioner, this will soften the hair and the braids will loosen as a result.
While drying with a towel knead the water out of the dreads. Try not to pull.
When it’s time to refasten or let go of your wooldreads, simply remove the elastic band and braid them out. To ease the process you can use a hair conditioner when washing your hair beforehand.
Wash the wooldreads with green soap or shampoo. Let dry and store the wooldreads dry place. A bag with scented herbs will keep them nice and fresh for the next time you decide to braid them in.
