Can you post (or can you point me in the direction of) the method used for securing DE dreads into short hair? I only have about an inch and a half to work with at this point. Also... how do you wash this hair? Thanks so much. Your tutorials are superb.
Great instructables!&nbsp;I just read both guides for single and double ended dreads, which left me with a question: what's the difference in the end? How do you choose one over the other?<br />
Hi Seth,&nbsp; usually it comes down to weight. DE dreads can be very heavy so if your new to dreads or just dont like all the excess weight then SE are probably best. You can get excellent coverage with both types.&nbsp; You can also install DE in really short hair (by using&nbsp; a different install method than shown). You need at least 3&quot; of hair for SE. <br /> Thanks for reading and commenting on my instructables. X
Thanks! One more thing: how permanent are they? Can I change them once a month like braids or once on you have to cut your hair like with real dreads?<br /> (My hair is about 13&quot; if that makes any difference)<br /> I hope to see the instructable for the install method you mentioned someday<br />
Hi Seth,<br /> You can leave them in for up to 3 months, You dont need to cut your own hair to remove them. So you can chnage them as often as you like. With 13&quot; hair you could use SE or DE.&nbsp; They take r9oughly 2-3 hours to install. So they are an excellent way to change your hair. I'll post some more instructables in a few days. Thanks
