But the use of human hair extensions is so versatile when it comes to styles and textures. Beyond the glamourous waves, sleek styles and tight curls, you can also create your very own custom dreadlocks with extension. Add in some accessories like beads, charms, hair rings and feathers for a really cool look! Human hair is the best type of hair extensions to go for when creating your human hair loc extensions.

Have you always wanted to try locs but afraid of fully committing to the style? Enter: weave wefts – the key to making your very own custom human hair loc extensions.
What you'll need:
A styling holder or clipper to hold the hair Rubber bands Comb Human hair extensions
Step One: Preparation
Take a small section of your hair extensions, (choose amount of hair according to how thick you want your dreadlocks to be). Once you decide how thick you want the dreadlocks, cut the extensions at the wefts and continue to get as many pieces as you like for your dreads. Hold each hair piece with a plastic hair band.
Step Two: Backcomb
Place the piece of hair somewhere sturdy, use a hair extensions holder or a clipper to hold the hair. Hold the hair in a 45-degree angle and begin to back comb about three inches, pushing the hair back. Once you’ve done the initial backcombing, you’ll need to go back to that area and backcomb the hair again about one inch deep. The tighter you backcomb the hair, the denser your human hair loc extensions will be and they’ll also have shape. Once you get to end of that hair, break it up and smooth it a little bit and backcomb it again. Take turns in twisting and backcombing the hair.
Step Three: Roll, roll, roll
Once your human hair loc extension piece is tight from the backcombing, begin to roll. To get the best results, concentrate on one area at a time. The key to getting the perfect, tight dreadlock is down to heat, friction, and concentration on one area at a time so make sure you feel the hair getting warmer and tighter.
Step Four: Repeat and roll
Repeat the same process. Back comb, until nice and tight and roll it up eventually you’ll have a nice tight dread that will be perfect to add to your hair. You can also extend your natural locs with extensions using hair extensions at the bottom and using a thread- you attach using a slip knot- tie a couple knots to make sure the dread is secure.
Step Five: Install
Install your human hair loc extensions using the crotchet method (you only need a crotchet tool). You can also tighten the dreadlock when you are crocheting it to your hair.
