Dreadlock Extensions

Dreadlock extensions are permanently installed using the crochet method, to give you longer locs right away instead of waiting years for your dreads to grow. Using hair extensions to provide longer length helps create a smoother, cleaner look. Having more hair mass allows you to be more creative with your dreads and create unique dread looks.

For those looking to gain instant length we first dreadlock your hair and then sew in extensions. It tends to take as long to do the extensions as it does to dread the hair.

Some clients opt to have us give them a new set of dreadlocks and then a few months later decide to have us put on extensions on to give them added length.

The portfolio section of our site has more photos of clients who've had extensions.

We offer both human hair dreadlock extensions or synthetic ones. They are custom-made to your specifications and ready to install at your appointment. You are also welcome to bring your own extensions instead of having us create them for you.

Extensions can be added to most dreads, at any age. They are attached solely using the crochet method. No thread or glue is involved.

Dreadlock Re-Attachment Service

If you have regretted cutting off your dreads and still have them, I can reattach them by creating new dreadlocks for you and then crocheting your old locs to the new knots on your head.

I use the same natural process as attaching extensions.

The Process
1. Book an appointment or phone/text/email to discuss what you’d like to have done.

2. Determine whether you’re after human hair or synthetic dreads and we’ll discuss the thickness of the dreads to suit your hair.

3. Decide if you’ll source the extensions or you’d like me to custom make them.

4. If you are having new dreads done, avoid using any conditioners, gels or products that leave residue in your hair. The drier your hair the faster it is to dread your hair (important when you’re getting dreads & extensions put in during one sitting) and the stronger your locs.

For length and body, extensions are the way to go.
