How many dreads to cover full head?

Post by knottyk » Mon Oct 26, 2009 10:42 am

I am currently making felt dreads ready for Halloween but dont know how many i need to make for a full head. I only have 5 days left and really need to get moving. They are single ended as my hair is short. I have made 20 so far (will make some more after work tonight). Will also post pics after I have finished.

Thanks Knotty

Depends on how thick the wool is as well hun, but I normally go for about 45 DE dreads for full coverage, with the dreads themselves about 1 1/2 cm thick.
Better to make too many and not use them than make too little and have to make bigger sections.

Hope this helps. x

i made 60 fairly skinny DEs but only managed to get 35 into my hair. My hair is VERY thin and fine though.
