What you do need to know however, is that having any type of hairstyle needs to be maintained in order to look good and dreads are no exception. If you make a decision to go with dreads you must know that this hairstyle takes time and a bit of work! If you stop caring about your dreads they will not look good!
I also want to break the stereotype and expel the myth that dreads are stinky and only for dirty hippies that don’t wash their hair! Dreadlocks are real hair and if you don’t care about your hair and scalp and you don’t wash your hair, your scalp can not breathe and the hair follicle will over time loose strength and begin to break at the root. Leaving you with flakey dreads that are thining at the top. Not a good look!
Your hair is always growing and you need to keep your dreads tight with regular maintanence especially in the beginning to keep them healthy and tidy as they grow.
My technique has evolved over the years and I now know not only how to make flawless dreads, but also how to maintain them, based on my own experiences with my dreadlocks over the last 11 years. I have made my own mistakes and I can now pass my experience onto you.
It doesn’t matter if you have straight hair or curly – European, Afro or Asian, I can make dreadlocks on any type of hair, so long as its at least 10cm long, If your hair is short but you like the look of longer dreadlocks I can extend them, seamlessly, using natural hair.
Hopefully this site helps you to make a decision if you haven’t already, or if you have dreads and are not happy and would like them to be improved there should be enough info here to guide you through.
I am confident I know everything there is to know about dreadlocks and that they no longer have any secrets from me. If you have any questions just let me know or if you are interested in any other hair styles send me a message or start a forum topic.
