Specially designed string and a specific knot sequence bind any person’s naturally shed hair to the coinciding lock. Safely bound, the shed hair hardens within it’s coinciding lock over time. Along with natural pressure like pillow friction, wind, ponytails, petting, shampooing/swimming… this bound lock of shed hair hardens and becomes a single unit; a dreadlock…. a lock of shed hair… nothing more, nothing less. Receiving basic maintenance every 1 inch of growth or 2 months ( hair grows 1/2 inch each month on average) will ensure that all shed is captured in perpetuity, resolving in a linear formation.
