Well, this depends whether you want to go for permanent or temporary dreads. You have 2 basic options, both of which require a minimum length of 3 inches of your own hair:

  • For Permanent Dread Extensions, this involves you sending me some hair (see next question) and me making some extensions in advance and then dreading your hair, and attaching the extensions onto the ends of your dreads. This is my preferred method rather than attaching the extension hair from the roots because this creates an artificial thickness to your own dreads, which will become apparent when your hair grows and the real thickness can be seen. It also means that the extensions are more easily removed should you decide that you want to lose them once your own dreads become the desired length.
