Then all your enthusiasm slowly fades away, as you keep on searching for hours, and yet you’re unable to find a decent video on how to install it. You’re totally exhausted by the many attempts until you eventually manage to get them braided in. It wasn’t easy, but at least you’re pleased with the result. When you look in the mirror you like what you see, so you forget all the suffering you’ve been through these last couple of hours.
Wouldn’t you just want your dreadlocks to feel soft and comfortable, and sleeping to be relaxing again? Wouldn’t it be great to show yourself to the world and explode with self-confidence?
We are here to help you get the best-suited set for you. Our collection of the most basic properties will help you make the right decision when you buy yourself a set of wool dreads.
Tip 1: Mind the softness of the wool material
Wool dreadlocks are light, soft and can be braided in multiple times.
- Is your scalp sensitive? Choose an extra fine merino wool set. It is made of super thin fiber, it feels comfortable and it’s not prickly.
- Do you want them to look like real dreads? Then the sets made of fine merino wool are just for you! They are more textured and the fine fibers are more visible.

Tip 2: Pay attention to the sensitive areas
Discover the advantages and disadvantages of single and double ended wool dreads. In brief:
- Single ended dreads are for more sensitive areas, like the hairline.
- Double ended dreads are for the rest, for a thicker effect.
Tip 3: Learn several installation techniques
We teach you two installation techniques in our tutorial videos. One of these methods is perfect if you have long hair.
Tip 4: Plan sectioning to determine how many dreads you will need
Plan where you want to install the wool dreadlocks, and how your hair will be sectioned. Always have a couple of dreads in extra, as you will braid each set in several times.
- 30-40 dreads for a mohawk
- 50-70 dreads for a full head
Tip 5: It is a misconception that you can rarely wash your hair with wool dreadlocks!
- Wool has a good resistance against stains and odors, it is antibacterial and antimicrobial, so you don’t have to clean it too often. With the wool dreads installed, wash your scalp as often as you wish; even several times a week.
- The big wash is only necessary every 3-4 weeks.
- Dry the dreads with a hair dyer within a flash.
