How To Make Dreadlocks Wavy Or Curly

Dry or wet setting

Learning how to make wavy dreadlocks is whats hot with men and women wearing dreadlock. Getting the perfect wavy dreadlock look for your taste depends on the method you use.

The wave method is done after your hair has been shampooed or has been shampooed not long ago. While still damp you can add setting mouse and hair moisturer to freshly shampooed hair before braiding.

If hair is already dry, you can add styling mouse or foam to the dreadlocks right before braiding each one. You will secure each braid with a small rubber band.

How To Curl Or Wave Your Dreadlocks

If you want to have tight wavy dreadlock you can take three dreadlocks ,apply styling lotion, and braid them to the end and secure them with the small rubber bands. Complete whole head.

Loose Wavy Zig Zag Dreadlocks

Most men prefer the looser zig zag type dreadlocks. You can achieve this by using more dreadlocks in the braids or cornrowing dreadlocks into rows. You may want to experiment to see what works best for you. The best thing to do is ask the person with the perfect wavy dreadlocks how they achieved their look.

How To Curl Dreadlocks
Dreadlocks can be set on sponge rollers or on long pipe cleaners for tighter curls. The pipe cleaners can be bought from a craft store very cheaply. They can also be bought to match the color of your hair.
  1. Fold pipe cleaner in half.
  2. Leave a circle at bended end and twist all the way to close ends.
  3. Apply setting foam to 2 dreadlocks.
  4. Wrap hair at bottom of pipecleaner all the way up.
  5. Bend straight end down to hold curl.
How To Dry Dreadlock Set

I prefer the natural drying methods for softer curls, but love the dryer for a the times you need to wear you curl style the same day. Remember it is very important that your dreadlocks are completely able to dry.
  • After doing the whole head you can choose to wear hair out as a style for a day or two.
  • Cover with beanie or cap.
  • Dry under hairdryer.
There are many setting foams and mouses you can use. However if you need to dry fast, you can use the Isoplus extra hold styling mouse.

Doing this style is also the perfect time to retwist your dreadlocks with what ever gel you enjoy. I like the root stimulant dreadlock gel.
