What is T&R/Twist and Rip?

Twist and Rip is a dreadlock installation method where two sections of hair are pulled apart in opposite directions repeatedly to create small loops which turn into knots to create loose dreadlocks.

This method is often used in conjunction with either palm rolling or crocheting or both. The dreadlocks created from this method are often very loose and fuzzy, which is why many people palm roll and/or crochet the dreadlocks after using this method.

“Which method did you use to install your dreadlocks? T&R or backcomb or something else?”
