lock your own hair

How does it work?

I use the Seienstyle technique; only a comb, a nylon string (optional), a crochet hook, and a whole lot of love. This technique creates even, smooth, faster maturing dreadlocks on all types of hair. It is non-damaging to your hair and gives long-lasting locs. If you follow the recommendations, the technique won't damage or break your hair or scalp in any way. It allows you the option to comb them out, should you not want dreadlocks any more. 

How long hair do I need?

Your hair need to be at least 10 cm / 4 inches long. 

How long does it take to start your dreadlocks?

Between 6 - 12 hours (1-2 sessions), depending on how thick and long hair you have and what style of dreadlocks you want.

 

How do you take care of your new dreadlocks?

Three* things!

  1. After the initial 7-10 days, you'll need to wash them every 7-10 days (+/- 4 days). It's important to use an appropriate dreadlock shampoo. Dollylocks dreadlock shampoo is recommended. Moisturize appropriately to ensure strong long-lasting locs.

  2. Separate your locks daily! Always make sure they are not getting stuck to each other at your roots. Run your fingers through your hair.

  3. If you want smooth even dreads, palm roll your dreadlocks after wash, to help the maturing process.

* Get 'regular' maintenance.

 

I will provide you with instructions and support so that you can care for your dreadlocks in the best way possible.

How often do I need maintenance?

Depends on personal preference and budget. Between 2 - 6 times a year. I recommend a bit more frequent in the beginning to make sure they stay on track.
