    dreadlocks Specializing in healthy dreadlocks, we only promote dreading methods and dreadlocks maintenance that are healthy for dreadlocks.

    Dreads grown the dreadlockssite way remain beautiful and healthy throughout the lifetime of your dreadlocks.

    There are only a couple dreadlocks sites that aren't strictly profit driven, and willing to do great harm in the creation of instant dreads, using very harmful methods. We provide the most honest information on dreadlocks methods, the maintenance dreads require, and what products are best for dreadlocks care.

    We have strict standards and will never promote, or allow the sales of harmful dreadlocks products, or dreading tools.

    We provide free shops for hand made natural dreadlocks products and accessories. All dreads products sold here must meet our strict standards and are guaranteed to be healthy for your dreadlocks, hair, and scalp.

    Although we recommend the natural way of growing dreadlocks, we recognize that many people start their dreads using many dreading methods. We are just here to provide the information on the gentlest healthiest alternatives and to help you recover if you used an aggressive damaging method.

    We care more about dreadlocks than about profit. We just want you're dreads to last a lifetime.

    We know when starting dreadlocks, many want instantly formed dreads. This often means turning to a dread salon or loctician to start your dreads. In most cases, this is the worst thing for your dreads, as the dreadlocks are started with brute force methods, and advice that often delays or prevents the proper formation of dreadlocks. Dreads started these ways require far more effort, and cost, to force them to look like dreadlocks. This almost always does severe harm to your dreadlocks.

    Dreads treated gently, are happy, healthy dreads.

    Is picking out lint a problem, am I damaging my locs?

    05/04/23 12:56:31AM, by General Questions
    So every few days I go through my locs (freeform method, 1.5 months) and try to get lint out. I cover my hair up at night but I accidentally used a very linty towel a few weeks back and there's still lint everywhere. I noticed that when I pick out lint there's just hair everywhere. Should I give...

    I just wanted to share a bit of my journey with you guys. I started my journey in January 2022 doing freeform method. My wife was not a fan of the look and I also agreed with her assessment. My wife helped me restart in July 2022 with comb coils. I'm 7 months in and couldn't be happier with the...

    Found this site today, I hope it’s still active. I am just a baby in my journey, stopped brushing my hair 4-5 days ago. I’ve been on the fence for a few weeks about starting my loc and how to do it. Decided if I was going to do it, might as well learn patience. Hope to learn some new things!

  • Healthy Dreads

    The easiest difference to spot between dreads on our site vs 'locs' on most other sites is the fact we have no balding, no excessively tight roots, and excessively tight styling.

    We do not promote the tightening of dreadlocks roots by force, allowing hair to continue growing on your scalp and remain healthy. Most dread salons over tighten the dreads roots till it causes balding called traction alopecia.

    We only promote dreadlocks products and methods that keep your dreads healthy and strong for a lifetime.

    We promote no wax or products that build up in dreadlocks, nor do we promote products that contain known carcinogens and skin irritants.

    We are the only site that has such strict standards, so when it comes to dreadlocks health we are the site to trust.

    Many strictly profit driven dreadlocks sites are not happy about the information we provide!

    We are experts at fixing the problems other sites cause, unfortunately many sites cause so much harm to dreads the dreadlocks need to be restarted. We try to avoid this if possible.

    Our dreadlocks health experts are always here to help undo the damage caused by other sites.

    We are widely considered the only trustworthy source for dreadlocks info.

    It’s strange to me that it’s only been 1.5 months into my freeform journey; it feels like so much longer. I definitely didn’t imagine, when I started out, that almost all my hair would be sectioned and dreaded to varying degrees by 1.5 months. I have some loose hair around the ears and nape and a bit at the temples (I love my baby hairs <3), and a frizz halo of course (I’ve always had frizz), but everything else has found a home, and has some dreaded-ness to the body of each section....

    64 beautiful dreadlings ❤️

    I’m a couple days short of my one month freeform anniversary, so I got comfortable in front of a mirror and spent some time admiring my dreadlings (seriously such a relaxing and enjoyable activity for me after a tiring day). Then I counted them— 64! I thought there would be more. There is loose hair around my ears and at my nape, so I imagine some are yet to be born. i have loved this journey, it is incredibly spiritual, much more so than when I had TnR dreadlocks 10 years ago.

  • Natural Dreadlocks, Why Choose Natural Dreads?

    natural dreads Why should you choose natural dreads over salon dreads?

    Salon dreads give you instant gratification, at the cost of severe harm. You look like you have dreads immediately, but actually takes much longer for them to actually become dreadlocks. They use aggressive force in order to force them to look like dreads often damaging the scalp and the hair severely.

    Natural dreads on the other hand form organically with more unique personality, your dreads are yours and not like anyone else's. Natural dreads remain strong, healthy and are kept clean. Salons often tell you not to wash your dreadlocks for long periods of time. Sometimes six months. Even the entire first year.

    When you're growing natural dreads, it is the washing that makes them dread. Additionally, companies that sell dread kits and products to make growing dreads easier actually make it much harder and ruin your dreadlocks. Dreads caked in wax might seem to mature fast, but they are only being glued together in wax and actually take much longer. Products designed to hold like wax, especially are very difficult to remove, and can sometimes result in the dreads needing to be cut.

    We have become experts at saving dreads that other dreadlocks sites and dread salons have harmed.

    If you are experiencing your dreads thinning at the roots, dreadlocks breaking off, scratchy rough dreads, heavy dreads from product buildup, we are here to help you restore the health of your precious dreads.

    Dreads can mean a great deal to those who choose to grow dreads, natural dreads most of all because of the time and patience it takes to grow dreads naturally. Dreads that form naturally take on a personality that is unique to the individual. Many who grow dreads the natural way, report growing as a person, as thier dreadlocks form. Dreads therefore can take on a spiritual growth aspect that can be profound.

    Dreadlocks facts
    • Dreadlocks need to be clean: Dreadlocks should be washed between one and three times a week, from the day you start dreading. Clean dreadlocks dread faster.
    • Dreadlocks are the natural state of all hair: All hair will become dreadlocks if permitted. Hair type, race, or ethnicity has nothing to do with the formation of dreadlocks. Dreadlocks do not require special treatments or products based on hair type or race.
    • Dreadlocks are low maintenance: Dreadlocks require very little maintenance, washing, and, if desired separating. Separation is recommend in most cases to prevent massive dreads.
    • Dreads are not unprofessional: Because dreads are often spiritual, and dreadlocks are a part of most religions (not just Rastafarian beliefs), dreadlocks, especially natural dreads must be accepted in any job, by law.
    • Dreads don't cause balding: Salons and locticians that forcibly over tighten the roots of dreads cause thinning and balding in dreads. However balding is not caused by wearing dreads when the dreadlocks are not over maintained.
