Healthy DreadsThe 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 excessivly 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 iritants.
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.

Read MoreLife and evolution make me wonder. Cats' and dogs' hairs grow to a certain length, then stop. So does our leg hair, arm hair, underarm hair, etc. Why does our crown hair ever grow? I believe there's some sort of spiritual reason for this, but I can't be too sure what it is. Maybe it's a manifestation of our spiritual energy, maybe it's a way of marking our human species as a special one. There's no denying that our species does have the most power on our Earth, the most self awareness and...

Natural Dreadlocks, Why Choose 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 recomended 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 forceibly 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.
