It’s back up! READ THIS BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS! you can buy the fake hair here (called kanekalon) amazon also has it for longer haired people you probably want to do dread falls go here for how to put those in Before asking me a question I’d appreciate if you looked through this site a little It answers most questions that I don’t address here If your question is a “if I do this minor variation to your directions will it still work?” type, chances are I won’t answer because I have never have tried this specific variation and my answer is that you should try and see what happens. If it works post a video response about it. I don’t know answers to location specific questions unless that location is Boston or NYC. So, no I don’t know if *place selling hair online* ships to *your country* you should ask them, not me. And no I don’t know where to buy it in *where you live*. The best advice I can give if you don’t want to go online to buy it is look in a beauty supply store. I have no way of knowing how many dreads a package of kanekalon will make because a “dread” is not a unit of measurement. It depends on how thick they are and how long they are. There’s no way for me to answer this question. I also don’t know many many dreads it’ll take to do a whole head of hair. How dense do you want the dreads to be? How think is your hair? How thick are the dreads? Too many variables. There have been some



  1. Ah, never mind, you were replying to someone else’s comment about real dreads, not kanekalon dreads. Sorry about that!

  2. Kanekalon is plastic, not real hair, if you, personally want to use conditioner, whatever, but I promise the only thing you are doing is adding this nastiness to the plastic fibers that every little bit of skin cells and dirt is going to stick to.
    The boiling water with gently melt some of the plastic together, without a yucky mess.

  3. You just saved me from spending 50 dollars on dreads on ebay. woooh. ;D

  4. Awesome!!! thank you very much for making the tutorial ^^ i hope it’ll work if i’ll do that :D thanks!!!

  5. your voice is just the same than avril lavigne ¡¡¡¡

  6. bullshit, you can use conditioner and comb them out ( yes, will take like couple of hours but will work )

  7. fuck i tought synthetic drugs !

  8. Thanks for the vid on this, I’ve been wanting these for a long time but they are so expensive & never the colors i want.

  9. once you get real dreads, you’re stuck with them, unless you cut them out of your hair.

  10. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I was just about to spend money on dread falls but im doing this now! So, I know what I’m doing this weekend :)

  11. I must commend you on a excellently produced video. CLEAR, CONCISE, and ACCURATE explanation of this process…WERQ!


  12. Hello, I really really wanted to do this because I really wanted to have dreadlocks for so many years now, but I don’t want to sacrifice my hair, so when I found about this stuff, I really really wanted to do this, problem is, I cannot find kanekalon fiber around here in the Philippines. :( ((((
