i'll nip in here before anyone else does.
i see you are fairly new here, but see that magic button at the top called search? holds all your answers, but failing that, super glue works great, hot glue that isn;t too hot works to, and i cut an X, they won;t come out

Yeah agree with above. I cut an X into the hole, put some super glue inside the X and put the dred in. Makes a good hold.

I use "Loctite" super glue for my dreads,but also cut the dreads at a slight angle before I glue them so that they hang nice.I will be doin' some dreading myself soon. :)

I do it almost like Ronin sayd.

Cut them in an angle but... Here comes the difference. Make sure that the inside of the hole, where the dread goes in, is not painted.

Glue on paint... No matter how strong your glue is, it will come off. So, put some latex in the center of the dread and glue on de edges.

Put it in place and keep pushing for about 30 seconds. That dread will never come off the mask again.
