We do a lot of dreadlock work for our clients and part of that work is maintaining and repairing the dreadlocks. The most common problems we encounter are having to lighten the dreadlocks, repair damaged hair and thicken and re-tighten the roots:
Dreadlocks that are too heavy can cause enough stress to actually pull hair out at the roots. We can help lighten the load! By cutting the dreads shorter or by splitting them down the middle creating two thinner / lighter dreadlocks.
Thinning, unhealthy, brittle and damaged hair may be the cause of your dreadlocks breaking. We can help strengthen your dreadlock roots with a variety of procedures, products and natural remedies. We may suggest the use of a quality hair moisturizer. There are several natural oils that can be used too as well as simple dietary additions that can do wonders for your hair. Chemical based treatments and heat must also be avoided.
Once your hair is in better shape we can start the process of thickening and re-tightening the dreadlocks starting at the root.
