Single dreads and single dreadlocks

Do you want to make single dreadlocks a.k.a single dreads?

Single dreadlocks or single dreads are the solution for those who think dreadlocks are cool, but don’t want a whole head full. It’s also a great starter, just if you want to know what it feels like to have dreadies.

How many dreadlocks do you want?

You determine the number! We make you two, three, 13 or so many you just wish.

A single dreadlock behind the ear. The classic.

A good place for one or two single dreadies is behind the ear. This will show off the dread well, but you can also tie it away in case grandma or the bosses don’t ever see it.

Certain jobs are easier for you to handle than others. If you are looking in particular your dreads on the back of your head, you will most likely have trouble combing your hair.

You can arrange dreadlocks repairs individually, or make straight a whole line at the back of the head.

During the appointment, we will be very happy to advise you and show you different ways to place each dreadlock.

Make yourself two dreadlocks and you won’t need a scrunchie.

We can also crochet you two dreadlocks, which you can then use instead of a scrunchie. Super practical, isn’t it?

But, most of the time the dreadies have to grow a little first until they are then long enough for you to tie your hair together.


Extend single dreads with own hair

If your dreadlocks are still a bit short, after creating them we can make extensions from your own hair if you like. For this it is necessary to cut out some strands from your bottom hair. This is not noticeable 😉 but makes a big difference.

The other hair will be jealous of the dreadlocks.

The only thing you have to watch out for with the individual dreads is that the remaining virgin hairs do not felt into the dread. Indeed, these are jealous of the dreadlocks, because all hair wants to be dreads. Therefore, you do need to give the dreadies a little care, also since they are likely to be washed often.

Did we mention that combs and brushes are actually “anti-dreadlocks” tools?

Part of the care is making sure the hair doesn’t felt into the dreadlocks at the bottom of the roots. You can simply pull them out again or make them go away with a skillful cut.

Sometimes the opposite is true: the dreadie loses hair at the base. This means occasionally you have to work this hair back into the dreadlock so it doesn’t thin out at the bottom.

Single dreadlocks also need care

Likewise, you should always crochet a little after. This happens relatively quickly with a dreadie. We will give you a crochet hook on the way and explain how to take care of your dreadlocks.

Should there be more?

Single dreadlocks are recommended if you’re still a little unsure if you want to dreadlock the whole head. We have customers who are satisfied with a dreadlocks. There are also those who keep coming back and making more and more dreadlocks until the whole head is full. Everything goes, nothing must!

We are happy to be your style advisors.

A dreadlock costs between 15 and 35 francs. Even though we only need about 10 minutes for a dreadlock , the appointment often takes longer. Advice around dreads (such as where best to place them and how to care for it), also still takes time.
