Products

Quite often it’s hard to find a good range of specialized dreadlock products. We search high and low to find good products and we test them ourselves, sorting the good from the bad, and these are just some the ones we have found. There is lots of confusing information out there about what should or should not actually be used in your dreads, but what people forget is that there are many different hair types, which can make all the difference about the effectiveness of certain products. Wax, for example, we do use but mainly in establishing dreads, not as a slop on product to make money. Remember everything is personal preference; different products are for different people, either way we want the dreads of the world to be at their dreadful best!

Remember when trying a new product; always test a small amount on your skin before fully using the product just in case of a bad reaction. Even if a product is herbal, various skin types can still react.
