Dreadlock Maintenance

 

Do your dreads need a little.. or huge tidy up? Many people get there dreads tidied before a special event such as a wedding or job interview. The most common maintenance work included re-dreading root growth, tucking in loose hairs and rounding off loose tips, but if you have neglected your hair a bit or have started your dreads the natural way i can also solve problems like separating dreads that have matted together or reattaching dreads that have broken off.

   Dreadlocks from scratch

 

Dreadlocks from straight hair are created by backcombing and crocheting. I find this is the best method as it creates mature looking dreads instantly, it also allows control over sectioning the hair so you don't end up with one big dread!

Different options are available when creating dreadlocks. You can choose whether you want thin or thick dreadlocks, loose or rounded tips, keeping straight hair around the face, keeping a fringe or dreading half a head, Alternatively feel free to bring a photo of dreads you like the look of :)

 

If you are not ready to commit to a whole head of dreads, you can always see how you feel with a smaller amount. half/quarter heads or one or two dreads are also options. lots of wool, trinkets and beads are available to decorate them and hair wraps also look great with straight hair

 

Prices...

       Prices are determined by length and thickness of hair. Here are some rough guidlines. For an exact quote please send a photo of your hair.

  • Above shoulder: £100-£130

  • Shoulder length: £120-£150

  • Below shoulder: £150-£250

  • Half head/quarter head/mohican/smaller amount-by quote

                 Extensions

 

Extensions are made from high quality human hair, they are attached using a crochet hook method which creates a seamless appearance. Extensions are available for those who want to make there current dreads longer or for those with straight hair wanting long dreads instantly.

 

Different variations, colours and lengths are available when creating extensions. You can choose whether to have thin or thick dreads, loose or rounded tips, half a head or dreadlocks layering throughout straight hair.

Extensions include an aftercare sheet  after installation.
