Starting DreadlocksStandard methods in cultivating your locs vary depending

  1. On the condition of your hair,
  2. How long or thick your hair already is
  3. What I have to do to start ($125+) or maintain ($70+) them.

 It all depends on what you present to me as a canvas.  First, when you come in make sure your hair is style free, no braids, twists or hair accessories.  Next I will shampoo your hair & then apply a series of modalities: coil twisting, backcombing, herbal infusions and essential oils to use on your starter dreads. You have to have enough hair at the root to anchor for support of each loc.  Your hair grows in natural sections, grafts of 15-20 hairs.  I use this as a means of layng down a template for your future dreadlocks.  Your locs will go thru a variety of transitional stages.  They will cocoon, swell, puff and sprout in as little as a few days to a week with perpetual continuity.

Length to start:

  • Ideally,  you will need an 1"- 2" of hair if it is tight and kinky to start the process.
  • 3"-5" inches if your hair is loose and curly.
  • About 6 inches if your hair is straight and or wavy.

You are welcome to schedule a consultation ($25 = 30 mins). Hair locks because of shedding & by not combing, brushing or washing the loose hairs out.  Black soap is an essential loc hygenic that I use to safely shampoo and maintain healthy dreads. This is 100% raw african black soap... not the dudu osun you see sold in boxes at your local convenience store laced with dyes or lyes. As a style at first, I coil and if necessary backcomb the hair using a metal rat tail comb. You normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day. Over a period of weeks your hairs become matted, knotted & tangled. I use this to my advantage to put you on the accelerated path to natural dreadlocks. I insist on using our mentholated Loc sprays to twist and loc the hair. This will minimalize build up or residue as left behind with most common over the counter gels. I use bornu blends to keep locs hydrated, from thinning & falling out.. made from pure natural organic shea butter, essential oils and emollients. For frizzies & unruly hair our clients prefer our Bornu Butter  to tighten the roots. After some weeks as your locs start to grow they will bud, swell, sprout and look a bit scraggly. This is a necessary stage & precursor to the beginning stages of your hair actually locking. To keep them attractive looking you will need to come in at first every 2-4 weeks depending on what you can stomach financially and fashionably. We can successfully lock any hair type but the length of time it takes for the hair to actually lock depends on the texture, your lifestyle, and patience. 

 

Important considerations:

  • Do your research before you look for a loctician
  • Be realistic about end results - it may not look as manicured as hoped for in the beginning
  • Make a place in your budget for timely bookings - expect to come in once a month
  • Don't ask too many folk for their opinions
  • Decide your loc journey timeline
  • Think long-term - locs equals patience. weeks to months of matting, swelling, puffing, sprouting with perpetual continuity
  • Consider a consultation
  • Seek a Master Loctitian, someone who has their own brand. Makes, uses & sells their own products.
