Maintenance & Repair

Getting professional maintenance regularly will help you to keep your dreadlocks on the right path as they mature. Also, something that I have noticed myself is that having regular professional maintenance helps to keep my scalp happy and healthy.


As your hair grows your roots can become like a heavy blanket on your head which makes it difficult for your scalp to breathe. You may feel that your scalp is more itchy or oily (and messy!) when your new growth gets long. 


How frequently you choose to get professional maintenance is a personal decision and one that I will respect. I do recommend that if you have newly established dreadlocks that you plan to get come in for professional maintenance every 2-3 months for the first year. At that point your dreads will have matured to a point that you may not feel that you need to come in that often. As an absolute minimum I recommend that you have professional dreadlock maintenance once a year.

What to expect at a Routine Maintenance


When you come in for a routine maintenance I will begin by removing your root-tie (if you have them) and then install a fresh one. The rest of your maintenance will be done with a fine-tooth comb and a crochet hook. I will finish your maintenance with a DollyLocks Tightening gel or spray.
