I consider application really easy, if time consuming. If you can braid, and keep a strong grip, you can install dreads. I made, sold and installed dreads part time for a while, so to me, it’s really quite simple. If you’re looking for advice, photos, references, sellers, visit hairextensionsforum. For dread sales, you can also visit my friend at dreadfulcandyparlour.
If enough people ask about this dread thing, I will make a tutorial video/photoset or something. I haven’t been doing dreads for a while but I get these questions a lot.
