How long hair do I need to have to start dreadlocks?

Uncategorized Feb 22, 2017

 

This is a very common question that people that are interested in dreadlocks keep on asking.

Well there is not really a strait answer to this one I’m afraid.  It all depends on how thick your hair is, what technice you want to use when you will do your dreadlocks and who will make your dreadlocks (yourself or as a loctitian)

 

If you are getting dreadlocks done on your own hair I would say that you need 10-15cm minimum if you have caussian hair, if you have affro textured hair 5 cm works great to start dreadlocks. Remember the longer your hair is the better forming dreadlocks you will have in the future.

The shorter your hair is the more you will have dreadlocks that are standing out a lot from your head. You need at least the length of longer than sholder length if you don’t  want dreadlocks that are pointing strait out from your head from the beginning. Althou that they will point out from your head doesn’t last very long.

deep clean dry dreadlocks Jan 13, 2017

I have here a question from Liz Marda on Instagram that asked me,

“How old should your dreadlocks be the first time you deep clean them?

And do you have any good advice on how to do that and how to dry them after washing?”

Well, a lot of dreadheads are really into deep cleaning their dreadlocks. It’s a really good thing if you are scared that there’s a lot of dust and scary things are stuck inside of your dreadlocks. To get a really good recipe on how to deep clean your dreadlocks, you should just Google around and see different types of recipes on how different people have made their deep cleans. If you want to buy a kit that is already made; you can buy them from Dollylocks has a kit that is finished with a shampoo and some powder that you can use.

You can find the Dollylocks deep clean kits in our shop here:

How to dry dreadlocks in a cold climate

dry dreadlocks Jan 10, 2017

Today, I’m going to answer you a question that I got from Instagram from Alfonso: “It’s fall wintertime and it’s getting pretty cold out. What’s the best thing to do to keep my dreads clean and dry up quickly?”

Well, when it’s winter out if you live in a really cold climate like here in Sweden, you really have to think about when you are washing your dreadlocks. So, just take a moment and figure out what day of the week is the best time to wash your hair. If you know that you’re maybe always home on a Saturday, or a Sunday or maybe you’re off on a Monday, plan on washing your dreadlocks during that day and do it in the morning. If you know that you’re going to stay inside all day, that’s a really, really good plan. But what you can do is wash your hair, make sure that you really, really squeeze out the excess water that is still in the dreadlocks when you’re in the tub or in the shower, and just like...
