Dreadlocks have history. Dreadlocks have beliefs attached to them. Dreadlocks can be a very spiritual journey for some. Whatever reasons you have your dreadlocks, we are hear to help you and keep them looking great.

Dreadlocks are created using many different techniques by people all over the world. Over time these techniques have changed and adapted. The people who make dreadlocks by hand, using a tool are called locticians.

The hair is either twisted and pulled by hand or back combed and a fine hook is inserted into the dread, making the centre solid and drawing the outer hairs in to form the dreadlock. This is a natural technique, no chemicals are used and the tool does not damage the hair or the dreadlock when used correctly. This is skilled work. Professional education is advised to acquire the skills to maintain your own or other peoples dreadlocks.

Ionic Straightening

Frizzy, curly and wavy hair can be a thing of the past – Ionic Straightening can transform your hair into straight luscious locks in just a few short hours.

Positively charged cationic polymers and proteins gently attach to the hair shaft to produce balance to the hairs structure. The inner bonds of the hair are reformed to produce shinny, healthy looking hair that stays straight - permanently!

Q & A

Q: I have blonde highlights in my hair – can I still have it ionically straightened?

A: Yes you can – deep nourishing conditioning agents penetrate into the more porous areas of the hair to achieve an even result. Recommended home care treatments are essential to keep the hair at its optimum level.

Q: I have short hair that has been coloured – can I still have ionic straightening?

A: Yes you can – short coloured hair can achieve the same straight, glossy look. It is recommended to colour the hair at least 2 weeks after the ionic straightening if the hair is in need of a colour at the time.

Q: What about regrowth?

A: Depending on how fast your hair grows – on average hair grows at a rate of 1.25cm per month. The usual recommendation is 6-8 months. The previously ionically straightened hair through the
mid-lengths and ends is protected while the regrowth is ionically straightened.
