Will dreadlocks suit my hair type?

Dreadlocks can be formed on any hair type or texture. Though, people with afro curly hair type get their dread locks faster than people with straight hair. And at dreads n’ locks, we have relevant skills and techniques to work on any hair type.

Can I wash my dreads often?

Dreads are just locked hair that need regular washing. We recommend that you wash your dreads every two weeks or as often as required if you have an active life and tend to sweat a lot.

How often should I have my maintenance done?

At dreads n’ locks, we recommend having maintenance every two months. This gives your hair and scalp enough time to rest and to have a good length of regrowth to work with.

Can I bleach or dye my dreads, and if so, should I do it before or after I lock them up?

You can bleach or dye before or after you dread your hair. We would recommend that you dye your hair before as this help to frizz the hair for the dreading process.

If I put dreads in and I do not like them, do I have to shave my head to get them out?

You can still comb out your locks to have hair back within 6 months after locking your hair. The more mature the dreads are, the more difficult it is to take them out. Note: brushing dreads is a hard work that can take a couple of days to finish. And you will lose a lot of hair from the combing process.
