Tutorial on how to dread hair from start to finish using only a crochet needle and a comb. The smaller the needle the better, my favorite is the .7 mm. Start my sectioning off the hair, this should probably be done carefully in rows like cornrow style. tart with one section about 1 to 2 inches in diameter, sectioning the hair in circles or squares. Then pin the rest of the hair out of the way using bobby pins and small ponytails. Tease the hair towards the base, then begin to use the needle. The needle should poke into or through the base of the teased hair so that the hook of the needle pulls little loops out. This is done while the other hands index and thumb is pinching the section being poked. Twist the hair being pinched and keep poking the needle in making loops. Focus on making the dread lock look even unless lumps are intended. This style was learned in Bangkok Thailand.
