Tidy-ups that I’ve done recently #jatadreads #dreadlocks 

This was a tidy-up of existing locks and locking new. Required only partial so made sure new were in a row and sectioned so that more could be added in the future.

30/09/16 Today’s tidy-up #jatadreads #dreadlocks 

Had to lock some together as the section bases were to thin. Good day talking about life, love and universe. We had much in common.

Locked Hair Maintenance, Very Important! #jatadreads #dreadlocks #dreads

Dedicate this post to the person who visited me today for a tidy-up, you know who you are :)!

Look, just because you have decided to lock your hair, doesn’t mean you are free of the responsibilities of personal hair hygiene and maintenance.  If you don’t look after your locks, you’ll end up being uncomfortable from them and with them and there is a good chance, you’ll end up loosing them.

Also, when the day comes to go getting them tidied up, it will be painful, will take a lot longer than necessary and time is money, so will cost you more.  Continue reading

After 3 n half months time out I’m back to locking hair. So glad. I’ve finally mastered a second technique which is  important because hair types are so different. This lovely lady was excited to lock her hair and I felt privileged she asked me. Cos my hands are rusty from time out, we spread the locking over 2 days. She wanted to keep the tails so as to keep the length. Beautiful bonding time with her, I’m looking forward to teaching her how to lock her own.
