1. Book an appointment or send through a photo to help us determine where you feel your hair is at and what dreadlock hair care you need.
2. Based on the state of your locs (new dreadlocks maintenance or mature dreads) I’ll suggest a course of action, which is normally a general tidy up but in some cases will involve thinning out or thickening up your dreads.
3. Make sure your dreds are completely dry for the maintenance/repair session.
4. During the appointment we will discuss how your hair is travelling and whether there are some techniques you can try or products you might use to get your locs in their best possible shape.
5. Tidy ups involve tightening dreadlock roots, crocheting loose hair into dreadlocks, separating any dreads that have joined, advising you about dreadlock care and making sure you leave with good looking dreads!
Dreadlock Repairs ------------------ $350The dread repair service is to fix up locs that have been poorly done or have partially unravelled. Note, while I will make them look as good as possible, it’s much better to have them created professionally to start with rather than try and fix up homemade jobs or those done by amateur locticians. * If you're after dreadlock maintenance Sydney, I offer a mobile service where I come to you.

As everyone's hair and dreadlock journey is unique, learning how to maintain dreads is something I can advise you on each step of the way. This next photo shows Asian dreadlocks. As this hair type is silky by nature it takes a little more time to get them matured. 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.
