    Default Synthetic Dreads...Help?

    Hello lovelies,

    I am very interested in investing in some synthetic dreads, however I am a complete noob and don't know where to start. My dilemma is that I am a veterinary nurse so they would need to be easy to remove after wearing therm on a weekend for example. I don't know how to wear them either, do people put them at the root on the top layer of hair? I was wondering about putting them under my layers? I want some black and red ones. Does anyone have any tips, places to buy and pictures of their dreads? All input appreciated and eagerly anticipated!

    Hi, I used to wear synthetic dreads on more than one occasion. They're honestly not weekend wear as it's taken any where from six to ten plus hours to put in and about four hours to take them out, assuming you want a full head. Given that you don't intend to be wearing them for extended periods of time (I wore mine for three months at a time) I'd suggest buying synthetic dread falls (dreads attached to hair bands to put over pony tails) for nights out, etc.. Furthermore, synthetic dreads can't really be installed by yourself, so you'd need a helping hand, which if you went professionally is usually about 2-3 per dread (I needed eighty dreads for a full head, so would have been 160, not including the cost of the dreads in the first instance).

    As I said, I think falls would better suit your situation. =)
