Do you already have dreadlocks? But they need some care? Locking the roots, cleaning up the sections? Repair weak-spots or perhaps even out any irregularities that formed over time? It would be my honor to work on your dreadlocks!
How does it work?
I use the Seienstyle technique; which means no chemicals, no hair damaging rips, twists, or interlocking, but only a comb, a nylon string, and a crochet hook, and a whole lot of love. The technique works on all types of hair, it doesn’t matter if you have typically Caucasian hair, Asian, Latin or if you have Afro hair, this method works on everybody!
How long does it take?
It takes between 2 - 6 hours, depending on when you had maintenance last, and how extensive work you want me to do.
How do you take care of your dreadlocks between maintenance?
You should wash your dreads 1-2 times a week, Dollylocks dreadlock shampoo is recommended.
How often do you need maintenance?
It varies significantly and depends on multiple factors. How fast does your hair grow? Your hair type? How often you wash your dreadlocks? Do you palm-roll? Do you separate them at the roots regularly? Do you have a root tie or not? Does your hair know that it is supposed to matt at the roots, or does it need help?
It is generally recommended to get maintenance 2 - 4 times per year. The more often you do it, the quicker and less expensive it will be at each appointment. The less often you do it, the longer it will take during your appointment.
I use the Seienstyle technique that uses a tiny nylon string at the roots, called a root tie. Keeping it in your dreadlocks will prolong the periods in between maintenance. If you don't appreciate the idea of a root tie, I can skip it or remove it at the end of the maintenance if you don't like it. Whatever your personal preference is.
I honor all dreadlocks and You who were them!
I'm absolutely in love with my dread extenders! This is the best my dreads have ever looked. I seriously cannot put into words how happy I am. They removed my old ugly extenders that were fried with bleach and covered with glue. I thought there was no hope for my dreads and I was thinking of shaving my head. I'm seriously blown away by how great they look!! I can't express my happiness. I can now say I love my dreadlocks again. Thanks so much
