On the American Idol finale a couple of nights ago, Ms. Rihanna sported a full head of fake dreadlocks. I am a proponent for strapping on some faux hair for a protective hairstyle, and I've gotten so many questions about how to achieve this look.
The girl Susy of African Creature does a brief, very simple fake dreadlock tutorial using yarn. So easy, a caveman could do it.
My BIGGEST piece of Fake Dreadlock Advice:
Use the "moisture and seal" method for your own hair beforehand. Wrapping your hair in yarn unconditioned will undoubtedly lead to hair breakage and loss.
Please, share links to your fake dreadlock success stories! Fake dreadlocks are on my top list of summer hairstyles (next to marley hair extensions). If you'd like me to do a tutorial of my own, shout me a holler on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or Youtube.
