Dreadlocks are a very big part of my life. Some people are born to do what they do, that’s me. My name is Tami - (a dreadlock hat is called a Tam) - Tami also means - Palm Tree - (organic coconut oil comes from palm trees) and I make the healing products. I believe I am the lucky one - I am so passionate about my work and business; creating and making products, teaching and educating. Many years experience brings with it an understanding of not only peoples dreadlocks but the journey dreadlocks take them on.

I have had my dreadlocks for 15 years and they are a huge part of me, it would be like loosing a leg if I was to cut them. I am self-respecting of my work and love seeing the transformation that happens with every set of dreadlocks.

I travel the world and get to meet many people of different cultures and see many dreadlocks. I’ve had dreadlocks myself for many years now and couldn’t see me without them. I promote Dr Dread’s range because its organic; I use it and I know it works.
