Hi, I'm Summer Spence. I'm a cosmetologist. I am here at the Wedding Cottage Hawaii, and I'm going to show you how to do a temporary dread. To do a temporary dread you're going to use a pomade with a very sticky texture, a comb, an alligator clip and hairspray. When doing a temporary dreadlock you want to start at the bottom section of the hair and work your way up. So starting with about an inch and a half wide section, let that go forward, you're going to take the section and you're going to start to twist near the base. Put your pomade on the tips of your finger and just slightly work that around your twist. Then once you've got the beginning of your twist, you're going to take the small teeth of the comb and you're going to backcomb in that twist, allowing the hair to move up so don't pull too tight right here. Okay, once you've worked your way down halfway we're going to put more product in, roughing up the cuticle with your fingers. Okay continuing to work your way down the hair shaft, twisting and backcombing. And then as you get the very ends of the hair you're going to want to separate so that's where you're going to use more product to keep it from separating and then when it gets really full like that you just want to pull it back down into the twist and re-backcomb and there you have a temporary dread. So after you've done the first one then you're going to move next to it and then next to it until you've done this whole bottom section and then you will take down another section out of the clip and work your way up to the top of your head. I'm Summer Spence, and I just showed you how to do a temporary dread.
