Natural and synthetic dreadlocks are possible hairstyles for all hair types. Natural hair can be bound together to form tidy low profile locks. As well, synthetic fiber can be utilized to create dramatic high styles likening to a mermaid and other fantasy lore. Imagine wild and primitive fairies, otherworldly aliens, and beautiful things that go bump in the night.
Fiercelocks creates hair extensions and dreadlocks. When creating synthetic dreadlocks Jonquil uses a professional grade fiber, similar to fishing line, called Shapeshifter. Shapeshifter fiber mimics natural hair’s matte denier while still offering hair colors that don’t currently occur in nature on human heads.
Even better, the fiber can be blended to create more colors, you can totally personalize your palette with this fiber! Texture can be manipulated through heating up and cooling down, unlike natural hair which is reactive to wet and dry changes.
Fiercelocks attaches synthetic dreadlocks by way of pinchbraid which is a very tiny attachment braid sealed with nylon bonded thread. These attachments stay in place until the thread is nipped, at which time the small braid is unwound and removed entirely. New thread is applied to “tighten” the pinchbraid if tightening is in order.
Synth dreads can be attached to natural dreads to add both fullness and length. You can choose one or the other as well as both. Be mindful that weight of extension hair can add up.
Below are some photos of synth dreads attached to natural dreads to create fullness and/or length.
