How long does my hair have to be for dreadlock extensions?

Your hair should be a minimum of 3-5 inches for the installation of dreadlock extensions. For Afro Hair and small diameter dreadlocks (pencil size) 3 inches is sufficient. For Straighter Hair Types and large diameter dreadlocks (sharpie size or bigger) 5-7 inches is preferred. The minimum length required depends on the size of the section, the thickness of your hair, and your hair type.
