Single Ended Vs Double Ended Dreads: Which One Should You Install?

You’ve probably already heard about single ended and double ended dreads. Are you unsure about which one is the best for you?

Let’s take the more common one first, the double ended wool dreads! This is actually a long dread, which is installed folded in half. As the name also suggests, this way it has two ends.

Why is double ended dreads so popular?

  • It provides a thicker effect, as it doubles the volume.

  • Dreads made of wool are much lighter than synthetic ones.

  • It’s very easy to install, you just braid it into your hair.

  • The braiding is less visible since it is covered by one of the two dreads.

  • You can achieve an explicitly thicker effect with it even if your hair is thin and you have to braid in the dread extensions using larger sections.

    Single ended wool dreads end in a loop on one end, which is used for braiding it into your hair. It is a perfect supplement to go with the double ended.
