There are so many ways to style long dreads. Opt for this low many pony style for days you want to keep your hair up and back. If you have dreads with loose roots, consider using a gel to help tame any flyaways. Smooth a gel, like Dove Men+ Care Control Gel onto your hair, then gather your back section into a loose ponytail.
