dreadheadhq called rippoff and scam
found on ripoffreport.com here
the following ripoff report was filed against dreadheadhq
he products sold by this company contain harsh chemicals(Sodium Laureth Sulfate) which damaged my scalp resulting in a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis. After learning that this ingredient was the cause of my condition, I obtained an RMA # to return the products. I returned the products, but have not received a refund or a response from DreadHeadHQ in spite of multiple e-mails and phone calls I have made to try and get my money refunded. My MAin complaint against them is that they ignore their customers and do not respond at all when you try to contact them.

dreadheadhq continues to claim to have 100% satisfied customers and claims to have never received a single complaint despite the thousands who have been known to complain.
dreadheadhq to this day continues to have an f rating with the bbb as the better business beuro was unable to get dreadheadhq to respond to complaints against them.
dreadheadhq has responded to numbgerouse complaints about dread wax ruining dreads by providing a wax remover free of charge to those who used dreadheadhq wax but it is unknown how harmful this wax remover may be.
it wasnt untill members of dreadlockssite.com forced the issue by challenging jonny clean the spokesperson for dreadheadhq to a public debate that any admission of harm was admitted.
but in typical dreadheadhq fashion jonny clean used the complaints and debates as a marketing tol to sell more lies and roll out even more usekless or harmful tools and products.
what is not stated in this complaint is that sls is also recomended by the american cancswer society to be removed from all cosmetics because of a carcinogenu=ic contaminant that is pressent in sls as a result of the process by which its derived. jonny clean on his site claims to know more about cancer then the cancer socierty and the ama and goes against their recomendations claiming there is no evidence to warrent changing the formula.
there have ven been studies that show sls linked to hair loss and premature balding.
dreadheadhq sells dozens of products that are harmful to dreads, whats more insulting is how each product makes another product nesacary.
for exanmmple the wax makes hair stick together to look like dreads but prevents dreading it also makes dreads feel sticky and gross so they made a butta to make waxy dreads feel less waxy and numerouse tools to make waxy dreads that arent dreading seem more dreaded. the soap which is all harsh chemuicals might remove some wax but not all but fries the scalp causing severe dandruff requiring a spray to treat the itches and so on
they literaly have about 20 products and 30 tools each 1 makes another 1 nesacary.
the truth is you dont need any products or tools or dvds with 20 step processes to dread
but this site makes drwading seem complicated so they can sell products and kits to make it seem easier.
the end result is thousands of disatisfied ..victims (most former dreadheadshq customers don't call themselves customers, but rather victims of a scam)
there are numerouse sites spreading awareness of the harm these products do, but there are literaly thousands of questionable reviews and how to dread tutorials that are paid affiliate sites fior dreadheadhq so its hard to find factual information except on forums and social sites like dreadlockssite and a few others.
