Training with Mookley

Wool Extensions and Wraps

One day from 9.30 to 18.00

Many people wear dreadlock extensions. You can add them to permanent dreadlocks for a splash of color or extra volume or can be plaited in to unlocked hair where they are plaited in and can be taken out any time. They can be worn for about 6 weeks and do not cause any hair damage.

 

Extensions are perfect for you:

 

· If you want to temporarily see and feel what dreadlocks are like while you are not ready yet to commit to permanently locked hair

· If you fancy a bit of flair in your hair for a fun weekend or special occasion

· If you are not able to commit to permanently locked hair, for example work restrictions!

· Or if you want to jazz up your permanent dreadlocks with color or volume

 

When I was first introduced to making dreadlock extensions, the use of synthetic hair was standard. This was very popular at the time and the fibers are similar to strands of hair which made it easy to practice with. However, I always felt uneasy about the plastic strands synthetic hair is made from and looked for a natural alternative. I discovered wool works just as well as the synthetic fiber and it is longer lasting. Most of all, it resonates much better with the Mookley ethos of using natural materials and sustainable products. I am happier working with materials that are environmentally friendly.

 

This course is aimed at those who would like to:
