Can I wear Synthetic Dreads in short hair?
Synthetic Dreads do need a bit of grip on your own hair, so we recommend a minimum length of 2.8 inch / 7 centimeters for the Thin Renate's Locks of Love and 3 inch / 8 centimeters for the Renate's Locks of Love.
With a hair length of 2-2.4 inch / 5-6 centimeters you can install the Dreads, but there is a risk that the dreads will fall out after a short time.
How can I install Dreads for short hair?
If you have short hair of your own, it is best to use the French technique for installing the Dreads. With this technique you can make a little more strokes around your Synthetic Dreads so that the Dreads have more grip and they stay in place better.
When you are at the ends of your hair you can use an elastic to secure your hair.
Because there is a lot of force on the Dreads in your neck when wearing a tail or a bun, you can choose to put an extra elastic on the Dreadlocks in your neck, to secure extra.
In this video I show you what the French technique is:
Washing Synthetic Dreads with short hair
When you have short hair it is important that you do not wet your Dreads too often. Your Synthetic Dreads absorb a lot of moisture, which will make them heavier. This makes them pull your own hair a bit more and they can sag a bit. If you have shorter hair, it is more likely that your Dreads will come off when you wash your Dreads often.
Instead, use a nice Refreshening Spray to care for your scalp and hair.
