* Installing and Hair Care Tips *
A few things you will need in order to install your SEDs and DEDs Dread kit.
– Rubber Bands
– Combs or a Brush
– Hair Clips
– a Friend who Braids
doing the braiding yourself? well then use a mirror or three.
A few additional items you may want to include:
– Spray Water Bottle
– Hand Mirrors
– Bandanas or Head Covers
– Other fun Accessories
*Installing SEDS and DEDs *
* Start from the back of the neck, use a comb to make a
clean row of hair. If you are installing alone, you may find starting at the front easier.
* Working from side to side section each row. Section off approximately 1×1 inch chunks of hair. You can rubber band you entire head into sections or work row by row until you finish. If working row by row use clips to keep stray hairs from getting into the wrong rows. Remove and clips and rubber bands before installing the dread.
* You can section in a grid fashion or stagger the sections in a ‘brickwork’ style. If you have fine hair, the ‘brickwork’ style is better as less of your scalp shows through.
This method of dread installation is quite simple. A basic braid uses 3 strands: two of these strands are your hair and the remaining strand is the dread.
1. Separate your hair into a row and take a 1×1 section of hair in your hands.
2. For SEDs thread the hair through the loop at the top of the SED.
For DEDs you will split the section into 2 strands and place the center of the DED in the center part of the 2 strands Clip the top dread to your hair to keep it in place while braiding.
3. Take the section of hair and separate it into 2 sections pull it tight so the dread is tightly laying on the scalp (not so tight that it hurts)
4. Take the separated pieces of hair and cross them over the dread in the middle of the section to secure the dread.
5. Begin braiding with the two hair sections, and the dread until you run out of hair.
6. Tie off the ends with an elastic rubber band. If any hair is sticking out just wet it with water and twist around the dreads. If it still sticks out use a 2nd elastic rubber band.
For DEDs unclip the top of the dreads and let it fold down over the braided dread.
7. One braid down! Now for to the next hair section. Repeat until full head is installed.
Another cool thing about loose dreads is you can turn them into falls. All you need is some lace, ribbon or elastic cord. String the elastic through the loop at the top of the SED or fold the DED in half around the elastic and rubber band the 2 together. Put your set of dreads on the elastic and taaa dahh instant dread fall! Use 2 for dread falls pig tails.. you can use the falls to accent dreads you have in or maybe you don’t have the time to braid the dreads in and you just want to throw them up really fast.. and the dreads can be taken off the sting and braided in later. It’s that easy.
*How to Install Dread Falls*

* Do and Dont’s *
With the right care you can ware them as many times as you want until they start to get damaged from to much use. but I still have some of mine from 5 years ago that I wear. So it’s all a matter of taking care of them. I twist them often just cus I like to play with them but it helps them keep their form and keeps them from getting tangled together.
