Lice, Help!!! Do I have to cut off my dreads?

First of all, don’t panic! You get the lice back out of your dreadlocks without having to cut off your beloved dreadlocks. I myself have been in places where there are quite nasty parasites, for example a fly in the rainforest which lays its eggs on sweaty clothes. Then a small larva hatches which bores into the flesh and lives there until it pupates. But my first parasite, I picked up in clean Switzerland: Lice! Do not panic! All hair gets lice Of course, the first panic was great, because of course I did not want to correspond to the stereotype of the “dirty dreadlock wearer”. However, at th ..read more

Dreadlocks and diving

Sea water and sun are not friends of dreadlocks Basically, diving is about the worst thing you can do to your dreadlocks. But it’s worth it at the expense of dreads to explore the underwater world. What is there to consider when diving with dreadlocks? It is important to wash your dreads well with fresh water every time after diving in the sea. Salt dries out your hair and this causes it to break quickly once it is old. Sun and wind contribute their further that I always lose a few dreads when I am often in the sea. Not so bad! Hair grows back again. Can I protect my dreadlocks? Unfortunatel ..read more

Tighten Roots – The best method for beautiful approaches
Dreadlocks Artesanal Blog

How to make my approaches really beautiful? With Tighten Roots you can make your roots “felt” without crocheting. That sounds great. But the important thing is that it is done at regular intervals. If you miss the regular maintenance too often, your roots will grow out too far to be efficient with this method. How does Tighten Roots work? You take the dread about an inch above the base, hold it between your fingers and press it lightly against the scalp. Find the center of the dread and start circling the dread with light pressure. Sounds quite simple at first. Do this until you notice that th ..read more

Dreadlocks in rainforest

What do I need to pay attention to? Can dreadlocks mold in the rainforest? Hairs are protein structures. And proteins are delicious! Not only humans find this, but also fungi and bacteria. If you’ve ever really been in the rainforest, you’ll know that pretty much everything starts to mold there: the belt, the backpack, and even the toothbrush. This is due to the high humidity and heat. High humidity and the heat as in the rainforest are not beneficial for dreadkocks.Challenge I used to think that I’d probably have to cut off my dreadlocks if I was ever allowed to be in the rainforest for any l ..read more

Will my hair shorten if I do dreadlocks?

New dreadlocks are shorter! Normal hair grows, if it is not very curly, especially in length. But when you make dreadlocks, a certain length of hair goes for the volume, the third dimension. When you redo dreadlocks, you lose about 1/3 of the length! There’s nothing you can do about it, that’s just the way it is, unless of course you have a lot of curls. Then the dreadlocks may be even longer than the peg curls. To the video You lose 1/3 to 1/2 in length. We always have customers like this loss of length of their hair regret. But in the end, when you make dreadlocks, you no longer have your “n ..read more

Dreadlocks wax: what is it good for?

Does wax help dreadlocks mat better? I myself do not use wax. Some dreadlocks makers want to get the dreadlocks process started with palm rolling and waxing. Sometimes it is also used to get rid of the hair that sticks out. But this is less efficient than crocheting them directly in. Critical voices, however, emphasize that the wax does not really help the felting process at all and cannot be washed out afterwards. Therefore, the “Crochet” is definitely the better choice. Scented wax But fragrant wax can also be used to give the hair a good scent. That certainly can’t hurt on a date. Please no ..read more

Do little animals live in the dreadlocks?
Dreadlocks Artesanal Blog

The cliché question every dreadhead gets to hear…. On all heads live little animals. Of course, in the dreadlocks live little animals. But even in normal, finely washed hair live small animals, for example mites at the hair roots. There’s nothing you can do about it. That’s a good answer if you ever get asked. People then always make such a disgusted face. Basically, life needs moisture. And I think that in the dreadlocks, except at the roots, is rather dry. Because if they were always wet, the dreads begin to mold. The post Do little animals live in the dreadlocks? appeared first on Dreadlock ..read more

Dreadlocks in the AfroShop or at the hairdresser make?

(London school for dreadlocks) Dreadlocks at the afro store or the village coiffeur? Better not! Afro stores: The technique used there is suitable for African hair. But it is not suitable for other hair. Far too much wax is used. We’ve had clients with tangled strands of hair that had nothing to do with dreadlocks. Or that the dreadlocks were not dense enough, came undone and / or started to mat into funny shapes. Worse are the hairdressers. These learn theoretically times in the training, how to make dreadlocks. With perm water, gel and comb, they’ll give you something that doesn’t deserve th ..read more
