Maintenance & making

Dreads after maintenance: no more loose hairs

It is possible to make and maintain your own dreadlocks. Before you can start making dreads, it is very advisable to read a lot about this. And, it can be very time-consuming and hard (the back of your head!), but rewarding. Another option is to let someone else do it, like Linda from Dreadspullen, or someone near you with experience.

Loose hairs, loops and bumps can be dealt with in many different ways. If you think it is too much work for you, you can not do the back of your head, or you just want to give your dreads a treat, seek an experienced dreadlock specialist.
