Do you have dreadlocks, but they need some care - locking the roots, cleaning up the sections?
Perhaps you need repair of weak-spots or correcting irregularities that formed over time? It's my honor to work on your dreadlocks!
How does it work?
I use the Seienstyle technique; which means no chemicals, no damaging rips, twists, pulls, or interlocking, but only a comb, a nylon string (optional), a crochet hook, and a whole lot of love. The technique works on all types of hair.
How long does it take?
A maintenance usually takes between 2 - 6 hours; depending on when you had maintenance last, and how extensive work you want.
We will discuss this at the beginning and throughout our appointment to make sure we both are on the same page.
How do you take care of your dreadlocks between maintenance?
Wash your dreads 1-2 times a week with a dreadlock shampoo, Dollylock is recommended.
Separate at the roots daily, it takes a few second compared to potential hours it takes to separate cross growing dreadlocks.
How often do you need maintenance?
It's a personal preference. How fast does your hair grow? Your hair type? How often do you wash your dreadlocks? Do you palm-roll? Do you separate them at the roots regularly? Do you have root ties or not? Do your hair know it's supposed to matt at the roots, or does it need help? What style do you like - messy and soft, or neat and clean?
I recommended maintenance 2 - 6 times per year. The more often, the quicker and less expensive it will be at each appointment. The less often, the longer it will take. Find the right intervall for you!
The Seienstyle technique utilize a tiny, practically invisible, nylon string at the roots, called a root tie. One of it's main functions is to prolong the period in between maintenance, you'll save money not needing maintenance as often. It will also help your hair shape into a smooth and even dreadlock closer to the root. However, if you don't appreciate the idea of a root tie, no problem at all, I can skip it or remove it at the end of the maintenance. Whatever your personal preference is.
If you want to give it a try, and end up not liking it, I offer free removal of the root ties.
