A dread wool is made of felted wool and dyed in my workshop. They are double, that is, they are folded in half. The hair is braided on one half of the dread, which makes the braiding more discreet and allows for maximum volume.

Why choose felted wool dreads?
This makes it possible to dare because, unlike dreads made directly on the hair, nothing is definitive.
This allows them to be easily removed, to be able to change hairstyles regularly, or to dare colors. You can also play on the length of your hair by braiding longer dreads. Moreover, the wool is very light to wear.
How do I install them?
Each dread is folded in half and braided on your own hair. You can install them alone(e) or with help, the hardest being to separate its hair into several bits more or less of the same thickness. Then they’re just braids! If you install them alone the first time and you braid all your hair, allow an hour in front of you.
