Synthetic Dreads for long hair

Even with long hair it is perfectly possible to wear Synthetic Dreads. I would like to share my tips about wearing Synthetic Dreads for long hair with you in this blog.

Can I wear Synthetic Dreads with long hair?

The answer to this question is yes, you can wear Synthetic Dreads very well if you have longer hair.
If your hair is longer than 20 centimeters, there are different techniques you can use for using Synthetic Dreads.
Because your own hair is longer, the Synthetic Dreads have more grip on your own hair, so that they will undoubtedly stay in place better. Long hair also has advantages!

How can I install Synthetic Dreads in long hair?

In addition to the French technique, we also have the Fishtail technique. This technique is especially for long hair. When you use this technique, the roots will be much shorter.

This is the Fishtail technique:

Taking out your Synthetic Dreads

Removing Synthetic Dreads is more work with long hair. After all, you have to "braid" out all your own hair again. When you have removed all your Dreads and you want to comb your hair, the advice is to gently brush upwards from the ends. So you start brushing at the ends, this way you already pull out a lot of loose hair, which makes combing out the top of your hair easier.
