Prepairing hair

Once the hair has been sectioned the locks are matted to start the locking process. Remember that depending on how the hair is knotted the dreadlock will be shorter and thicker or longer and thinner.

Use one of the following techniques:

  • Backcombing: comb the hair repeatedly towards the root until the hair is suitably tangled.
  • Twist and rip: Rip the lock apart into two strands (1), cross them over (2) and twist the lock around rubbing it between the thumb and index finger to blend the two strands (3) before ripping apart again to pull the knots towards the scalp and start the process again (4).
