I'm Jennifer Hyde. I'm here today to help to show you how to turn comb coils into dreadlocks. So we have here overly curly hair that we are going to put just a tiny bit of product on, a lot of people use a pomade or maybe even a locking gel at this point and you section it into whatever sections that you want your dreadlock to be. You can determine the size and shape of what your partings need to be based on what you want your overall finished dreadlock to look like. So we're going to take about a half inch by half inch partings because we want some really small shapings. We're going to insert the small teeth of our comb and simply join that hair and begin to twist it and comb it into the shape of its own curl pattern. Therefore making a small tight little coil. The idea is to section the hair out in small, little bitty sections and allow the natural curl to come through and also separate itself so that each of these pieces can become locks. You are going to want to shampoo and condition the hair as normal except instead of recombing these all the way to the scalp in order to recoil them each time, you will simply grab apart those sections, making sure that they are separated from the section that's next to them and you will simply twist and recoil it down. You can either drive them pinned in place for a tighter coil or you can leave the natural spring of the hair near the scalp which is going to give you a little bit of a more bouncy coil. Curly hair will eventually turn into a dreadlock using this method. It does take a while but it is very easy to do and the curl itself is what helps you make those locks happen.
