Created by Nef here at the Sacred Knots studio, this hair wrap is a riot of bright colours and comes equipped with a crystal cage so you can keep your favourite gemstone close by! This hair wrap features a synthetic hair fluffy tip to make it even more swishy.
These hair wraps are mounted on elastic meaning that they are extremely easy to install and remove from both dreadlocks and loose hair.
This hair wrap is approximately 24"/60cm long.
How to Install on Dreadlocks
Installing a hair wrap onto dreadlocks is easy! Just fold the elastic back onto the hair wrap to form a loop, then pull your chosen dreadlock through the loop.
Move the hair wrap up towards the top of your dreadlock and then tighten the loop. It's as easy as that!
In order to keep your dreadlocks safe, it is advised that you install hair wraps below any loose growth on your dreadlocks, meaning that the roots remain undisturbed and the hair wrap won't get tangled into your hair.
Please do not install hair wraps into the root of your dreadlock because this can impact the integrity of your dreadlock. Instead, place the hair wrap around 1-2" below the looser hair at the top of your dreadlock. Don't forget to remove your hair wraps before you wash your dreadlocks!
Hairwraps with large trinkets, crystal cages and motifs should always be removed before you sleep to keep you comfortable.
How to Install on Loose Hair
To install a hair wrap into loose hair, simply section off a square of hair, divide the hair in two and thread one section of hair through the elastic loop at the top of the hair wrap. Pull this loop up to your scalp before braiding the two sections of hair tightly down the hair wrap. Secure with a rubber hair band. You can wear a hair wrap in loose hair for between 4-6 weeks depending on your hair type. Keep an eye on your hair wrap to ensure that the new hair growth does not begin to form a dreadlock! When it's time to remove the hair wrap, simply snip the rubber band gently, unbraid the hair and brush out.
Caring for Your Hair Wrap
Like all dreadlock decorations, it is best to remove your hair wraps before you wash your hair. Simply loosen the loop of the hair wrap and slide down the dreadlock. To keep your hair wrap in the best condition it is advised to remove the hair wrap before washing. It's always best to remove hair wraps with large charms or decorations before you sleep as well.
