I did a lot of looking around the internet for written tutorials on how to make dreadlocks. I figured there might be good, educational info in these that might be missing in the above videos and...sure enough! In addition, a couple of the sites on which I found these tutorials had FAQ pages that answered a lot of questions I hadn't even thought of yet. I have listed them below in no particular order as I feel they are all great sites in terms of wealth of information. Personally, I think one should read all of them thoroughly (and watch the videos), and then come to one's own conclusions about how to make your dreads. The reason I would not recommend any one over the other is that there are many equally valid ways to go about making dreads. Different methods are probably more effective in different situations (i.e., hair length, texture, etc.).
So, here they are...
The Best Dreadlock Tutorials on the Internet!!! (according to me, anyway!)
