How to attach a Dreadfall

A dreadfall is a tail of dreads. These dreads are attached to an elastic. You can easily put this elastic in your own hair. This gives you an easy way to have dreads in your hair! They’re perfect for a day or a night out.

 You can order a pre-made Dreadfall from Dreadshop. We’ll gladly custom-make one for you. You can also make your own dreadfall and purchase the necessary products to go with it from us. We’ve written an instructional guide for this

 Below we describe how you can attach your Dreadfall to your own hair in nine simple steps.

Putting in a dreadfall 1

 

1. Put your hair in a ponytail/bun (or two tails if you want to put two dreadfalls in your hair). Use a thick elastic, as these proved good grip for your Dreadfall. Tip: use an elastic that is the same color as your Dreadfall. We’ve chosen to use a bright color for this guide so it can clearly be seen in the images.

2. Put your Dreadfall UNDER your ponytail and put the elastic around OVER your ponytail. If you do this the other way around, the dreads won’t fall over your ponytail with the optimum result.
