LOC IT- Daudi’s story

My dreadlock looks like it is going to snap. How do I fix it?

During your salon visit, ask them to fold the dread onto itself and crotchet together.

When and how do I crotchet my dreadlocks?

Ideally, I should crotchet my hair every 3 months but I tend to like a lot of growth so I would say 5-6 months.

What oils do you use?

I use different oils. Shea butter, castor oil, olive oil and dread moisturizer.

How often do you wash your hair?

Every 2 weeks (long wash) to stimulate growth and to keep them looking clean and healthy.

How do you prevent your dreads from breaking?

Moisturise them because if they are constantly dry, they will break.

How did your journey begin?

I had wanted dreads for a long time, then I met someone who had just recently had their hair dreaded. I was surprised by how long it had gotten in such a long time and I decided right there and then.

Challenges you’ve faced?

So far the journey has been smooth.
