We at Dreadlocks by Randi care about maintaining and keeping dreadlocks looking healthy and strong. After each dreadlock service we provide, we oil your scalp and locks with linseed oil and give you a free after-care kit and follow-up directions.
The starting of dreadlocks are done with aloe gel and a comb.
It takes about 90 minutes (if you have chemicals in your hair, please call ahead for instructions on a natural removal technique).
The starting of dreadlocks, a backcombing and palmrolling process done with aloe gel. This process may take 3-4 hours depending on the length of your hair.
If you have locks that are thin at the root or haven't had your locks maintained for a long while, we will take a small piece of hair that is machine-made to the human texture, match your hair color perfectly and build up from the scalp to your existing lock so that they are the same size. Any new growth of hair will be added to the lock it belongs to. Your hair will continue to lock right into the wrap that was done for you. It will look natural and no one will notice the difference.
REPAIRING OF DREADLOCKS
Dreadlock repairs are for people who have locks that are breaking in certain areas. The process of repairing includes using natural hair to save the lock(s). After the repair, you will not be able to notice where the work was done.
RE-ATTACHING OF DREADLOCKS
Re-attaching of dreadlocks are for people who cut their locks at any point in time, still have them and would like them re-attached as if they had never cut them. You will need at least 2 inches of hair for re-attaching. Time varies depending on the amount of locks. All work is permanent and the new growth of your hair will grow from the root as if you had never cut your locks.
The purpose of doing dreadlock extensions is for anyone of any race, with any length or texture hair who wants to change their look to the natural form of dreadlocks. Even if you have a perm or relaxer in, you can still get dreadlock extensions. Dreadlock extensions are also for anyone who already has dreadlocks and wants them longer or thicker at the root. Your hair must be approximately 2-3 inches long. This process is permanent, and no one will be able to tell that they are extensions. Locks will soften up over time with proper usage of the Aftercare Kit.
The process of dreadlock extensions includes adding natural hair to create each lock individually by hand. They can be any width and length you wish. You may also choose a variety of additional colors that we carry, adding colors like blond or auburn to the entire lock or tips to create a highlight effect for your individual look. Remember, once we add hair it will be permanent. Within 4-6 weeks, the hair that is added intertwines with your natural hair.
MAINTENANCE OF DREADLOCKS
Most newgrowth takes approximately 60 minutes to complete.
