Just as peoples hair type and the style that suits varies person to person, so does the need for dreadlock products. You might find your dread locks get a bit dry or itchy, every scalp reacts differently.
Some people do just fine without any products but most people benefit from them, even if its just a dreadlock shampoo. We particularly recommend it on new sets while your heads natural oils recalibrate to having dreads.
Not only does dreadlock shampoo keep your locs sweet-smelling, it is designed to aid the maturing process. Keeping your hair free from oily build up is the fastest way to achieve tight, healthy dreads.
The dreadlock shampoo we sell is Australian made, organic (plant and coconut), chemical free and free from additives or fragrances, making it a great choice for those who are allergy prone. We also offer an anti-dandruff shampoo for those prone to itchy or flakey scalps. We carry a range of products and can recommend items that suit your hair type and the maturity of your dreads.
How to maintain dreadlocks
During your dreadlock maintenance feel free to ask about palm rolling, keeping your sections separated, crocheting or rolling out little lumps that might form or anything else that crops up as you have our professional dreads salon accompany you on your journey.

Having gotten new dreads but not done anything to help them mature and leaving maintenance well overdue my client left with his locs in much better shape than when he arrived.
