Our Daily Dread

Welcome to Dread Week! Yes, I know some of you insist on calling it Spring Break, but you get a big fat "whatever, dude" from me. I'm just going on what I've got on the books every day this week, and trust me - it's DREAD WEEK! Starting us off is Shanda and her 74 new locks!

Check back for more pics of my super fresh shop-started locks every day this week! As always, feel free to leave your questions in the comments below. If you're looking for dreads (or just a little advice) shoot me an email any time at

Check In!

It's been a month since we started Ingrid's dreads, and look at the difference already! They're really coming into their own, and thanks to her attention to maintenance they're already felting. It still makes me smile every time I compare fresh dreads to their slightly lived-in counterparts!

Ingrid had a few very small dreads at her hairline that she was concerned would unravel, so we rewove the new growth to lend support at the base (you can see the one in the first picture that's sticking out again!) but otherwise, they're good to wait until we get a bit more length at the roots. Other than that, we tidied up a few ends that were curling loose - a totally normal (though wicked frustrating) situation for new locks. With a little extra work incorporated into her normal maintenance routine I expect they'll be coming together nicely when next we meet!
