When sectioning dreadlocks, always work from the bottom of the hair line and work your way up. You will of course find your own style, but this is a great way to get your started as its very simple to do.

Make sure you take as much time, care and attention as possible when taking your sections. It will make all the difference in the long run!

Another plus point of sectioning the dreadlocks in this way, means as the dreadlocks lay flat, they will disguise the scalp from the layer below.
