Are your dreadlocks in need of some care? Fixing up the roots and cleaning up the sections?
It would be an honor to work my magic with your dreadlocks.
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

How does it work?
I use exclusively the Seienstyle technique; which means no chemicals, no hair damaging rips or twists, but only a comb, a nylon string, and a crochet hook, and a whole lot of magic. This 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 - 8 hours, depending on when you had maintenance done last, how many, and how long your dreadlocks are.
How do you take care of your dreadlocks between maintenance?
You should wash your dreads 1-2 times a week, Dollylocks dreadlock shampoo bar is recommended.
How often do you need maintenance?
It varies significantly and depends on multiple factors. How fast does your hair grow? What is 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 a root tie or not? Does your hair know that it ought 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 you do it, the longer it will take to sort them out. I use the Seienstyle technique that uses a tiny nylon string at the root, called a root tie. Keeping it in your dreadlocks will prolong the periods in between maintenance.
