Dreadlocks creation in Chicago, Il

To create new dreads, your hair will be sectioned neatly, backcombed slightly then crocheted with a crochet hook. No chemical, glue or wax will be used. The result will be 100% organic & natural dreads.

Dreadlocks creation can take between 3 to 12h+ hours according to the length of your hair, the desired size of the dreads and if you are adding extensions.

How long should your hair be to start dreadlocks? 

To start dreads, the shortest bits of your hair need to be at least 6 inches.

If your hair is shorter than 6 inches, your dreads are going to unravel easily.
