Willow at Dreamweavings Dreadlocks Perth creates natural organic dreads on all types of hair. No waxes or glues are needed in this method, creating healthy amazing dreads. Dreadlocks are created using a crochet hook to weave and bind. Dreads can be created from a minimum of 15 cm's of hair. Installs can take anywhere from 5-14 hours depending on the length and type of hair. Dreadlock extensions using either synthetic or human hair can be added giving instant length. Once installed dreads take a few days to settle in. Your new dreads will need to be tightened within the first month and then usually maintained every 6-8 weeks depending on how fast your hair.
