Hi, I'm Jennifer Hyde. I'm here today to show you how to start a dreadlock on hair that has been previously permed or relaxed. So I'm going to start with my small section here. I've already sectioned this hair out. As you can see, we have simulated what hair is like when it has kind of a dual texture going on and you have more straight hair on the ends and a little bit more of a curl pattern going on near the scalp. You can still begin your dreadlocks, you just have to work at it a little harder. So from this I'm going to use the small teeth of my comb and I'm going to begin to insert and push some back combing into that hair, combing the hair backwards upon itself in order to make it kind of full and poofy here. Then we're going to take those hairs and we're going to, using a hook, we're going to take them and weave them to the inside of that shape. So we're going to take the edges and we're going to begin to pull them in so that those hairs can feed in toward the center and eventually become a dreadlock. So using this method as you can see, we were able to get all of that hair pushed in toward the center, get it to fill out as if it were curly and then we've taken the ends that were straight and we've woven them back inside and pulled them up inside the lock. That is how you begin to take permed hair into a dreadlock state.
