Tie your shoelace to the back of a chair, or something similar.
Get a piece of hair, around a pencil in thickness and tie it onto the shoelace.
I find it easier to do them in bulk, but to begin with do one at a time!
I'm making single ended dreads, which have a loop at one end, where they are plaited into the hair.
For this I simply make a loop, get a thinner piece of hair from the doubled over hair on the shoelace, and tie a loop with the hair.
Heres the tricky bit!
Twist the dread. Do it as tightly as possible to enable the dread to stay a nice dread shape!
Now do this in bits, I find it easier to twist the top, steam it, do the middle, steam it, do the bottome, steam it.
So twist and steam! You will be able to see the hair moulding into place.
Next step, is to wait until they are dry, my steamer likes to spit out loads of hot water aswell.
Once they are dry and looking lovely, trim off the puffy unwanted ends.
You can now reseal them if you wish. I like to run a (crappy old pair!!!!) of straighteners over them quickly to ensure they won't come undone, and snip off any loose fibres that look a bit mucky.
And your doneeee!
I will do another project on how to install them soon, I'm still making the blue and black set for my boyfriend!
