Can you add extra hair to thinning dreadlocks?

The short answer is Yes, the crochet method is the best way to add hair to your dreads allowing it to strengthen and thicken the dreadlock as long as you’re working with an experienced Dreadlock Service Provider.

However, the full answer is a bit more nuanced than that.

If your scalp is thinning, adding additional hair will not help strengthen a thinning root. This is because you need enough healthy hair coming out of the scalp to attach and hold the dreadlock. Adding hair that is not attached to your scalp will not help strengthen the very base of the dreadlock.

However, if you have plenty of healthy hair and it just needs to be contained within the dreadlock again, adding extra hair to fill in the gaps is a worthwhile approach.
