There are so many different ways to tie up your dreadlocks, so here's a quick overview of the Dread Ties available here at Mountain Dreads. We know how important it is to have dread ties that are gentle on your dreads, and don't cause breakage.
These are our most popular dread ties. They are super stretchy while maintaining their shape, hold strong and won't snap like regular hair ties.
Just once around is enough to support a dread bun. You can check out my Simple Dread Bun Tutorial here.
