Are Salons Worth it?


Dread Maintenance

wow, thanks so much for this! I appreciate that you cared enough to look them up for me. One question though- can you tell me the difference in appearance of "real dread" and "fake dreads"? I know that fake dreads usually are done with dread perms, but the pictures you posted looked pretty good to me...maybe i just don't know what i'm looking for exactly.

thanks again!

the price of well maintained salon dreads


Dread Maintenance

yikes, this discussion has been helpful. I know some dreadheads who go to salons to get their dreads re-tightened and redone. I was even considering maybe going myself...but i'm gathering here that everything they will do i can do at home, right?

Are Salons Worth it?


Dread Maintenance

Hey guys,

I'm writing this to get your advice on going to Salons that specialize in Caucasian dreadlocks...I was told about a place in Philadelphia, PA called "Salon Sugar" and apparently they are pretty good.

My beef with Salons is that it's always super expensive. This particular one charges $40 an hour. However, it could be worth it if they would be able to fix the shape of some of my dreads and tighten up the roots a little. Some of my dreads have like "bow ties" and "zig zags", which i know aren't always a bad thing but maybe it would help to get a professional opinion.

I'm interested to know what users of this site think of salons and whether or not the price is worth the outcome. Has anyone here ever been to a salon and had a positive experience?

roots and congos


Dread Maintenance

Thanks! that was my thread! :) I just have had some questions since then as well in terms of root rubbing, etc. i have noticed that some of my hairs have uprooted as i stated before...i'm not sure if this is from root rubbing, or something else...hopefully it will work itself out!

I wouldnt bother with root rubbing, the effects of it do not last and besides; frizzys are gunna frizz. Just let it be. Root rubbing can also cause baldness, increase in dandruff, and other problems listed by Soaring Eagle ^^. This is a great thread about thighting dreads..

roots and congos


Dread Maintenance

do you guys recommend twisting and rubbing the roots of new dreads to make them tighten up quicker? i've heard that this can cause your hairs to uproot which is damaging.

also, i have some dreads that were sectioned bad...should i cut the hairs that are part of the other dread to keep the sectioning right?

thanks again for your advice!

Recommended Shampoos?


Introduce Yourself

So I'm not really sure how to tell if a shampoo is "residue free" or not. I'm looking for some cheap options of good shampoo for locks that i could get over the counter at cvs or something. any recommendations?

Tightening dreads at the roots


Dreading Methods

thanks again for all of your responses. i have taken your advice, and just left my dreads alone at the roots. so far, they aren't really tightening, but i guess it will just take time
