FAQ general

Is my hair suitable for dreadlocks?

Yes. Basically all types of hair are suitable for dreadlocks, some better than others but you can get beautiful dreadlocks from any kind of hair structure. With us your dreads will look like proper dreadlocks from day 1 in any case.

How long should my hair be for dreadlocks?

The longer you want your dreads to be, the longer your hair should be. If you want dreadlocks with extensions, they should be at least 7-10 cm long.

Will my hair get shorter by creating them?

Yes. How much shorter your hair will be depends on the structure and thickness of your hair. You have to reckon with at least 30%, often it will be about half the length. But hey, you have the option of human hair extensions, which will be incorporated into your dreads.

Where can I get the human hair extension?

That’s what we take care of. You send us pictures or a small strand of hair so that we can determine the right color for you. Experience has shown that most hair that you order yourself on the internet for cheap -surprise- are crap, often unsuitable or the dreads simply do not end up looking beautiful. That’s why we take care of this for you.

What if I wanna get rid of my dreadlocks?

Many people think you have to shave a bald head right away. Fortunately, this is not quite true and there are two more options: -Stop crocheting at the base and any kind of fixing. Then you can just cut the dreads off at some point. -Comb out your dreadlocks: A painful mission that should be done with a wagonload of hair conditioner. It is recommended to cut off the totally matted area (usually the lower third) and then start combing. From time to time, apply a new rinse of conditioner. You can’t really tell how broken your hair is in advance though. Afterwards, off to the hairdresser who will put a hairstyle on your head again.
