How long does my hair have to be to start dreads with this method?

Backcombing is a method where you can start dreads with very little hair but your hair should be at least 3 inches when starting dreads with the backcombing method. If you start any shorter than that you will have big problems with getting the dread to stay in, because there is not enough hair to hold the knots together.

What is the fastest method to get dreads?

Backcombing is probably the fastest way to get permanent dreads. Because the hair looks like dreads right after they are finished, there is also an estimated time of 3 months to lock up. This is the least amount of time out of all the methods.

The fastest way to get temporary dreads is probably the loomed dreads method. But you can only leave them in for a few days. So if your going with temporary dreads use the silky dread method.

Can I get extensions with this method?

Yes you can, and you have the choice of backcombing the extensions in with this method. Other methods only allow you to braid the extensions in.

Will this method work on Caucasian hair?

This is probably the best method to start with if you have Caucasian hair. I believe that this method was thought up with Caucasian hair in mind. Because it's really only one of the few natural ways to make dreads naturally in Caucasian hair.

Will this method work on African hair?

This method will work wonders in African hair. The dreads seem to lock up just weeks after you are finished backcombing.

Will this method work on Asian hair?

Asian hair can be very hard to lock up and this method is one of the few methods that will actually make dreadlocks in Asian hair.
