Q. I wanted to make a few fat dreads and use them to pull back my hair into a ponytail or a bun…but I want the rest of my hair to be undreaded. How can I dread those sections while I would continue to wash, comb and maintain the rest of may hair??
A. You can try to dread just a few locks if you want, but dreads tend to grab any other loose hair that’s around it and dread it too. If you’re quite conscientious about separating the regular hair from the locks when that happens, you could probably do it. Washing is not a problem, but conditioners are, because they untangle new dreads.
