Fiercelocks prefers a dreadperm method for natural dreadlocks creation.
Natural dreadlocks creation using a dreadperm technique is as follows: section, form, base tie, rod wind, saturate and rinse.Brand new soft natural dreads aka *baby dreads* create within 4-6 hours with an average head of hair.
Your dream dread dreadlocks are still a few years away.
Your soft baby dreads will firm up over the next several months and take recognizable dreadlocks form over the next couple years. This is to say that the dreadlocks of your dreams are a few years away. The dread perm is an effective way to begin the process.
Dreadperm service includes a basetie
so that you begin shed collection immediately. The string acts as a binder to capture your hair shed inside its coinciding lock. Your hair shed is the heart of your dreadlocks and regular maintenance keeps your lock neatly intact. Base tie maintenance occurs every 8-12 weeks and most appointments take an hour.

Do they stay wavy like that?
No. they do not. Dreadlocks harden, mature, and relax to a straight dense lock.
Will I lose length?
Probably, not everyone does, many people do because of the compacting and hardening process that takes place naturally.
How fast will dreads become long?
Hair grows about 1/2 inch per month on average. In three or four years your dreads will show a substantial length gain.
Does the dreadperm hurt?
You may experience some discomfort due to the new tension on your head. Consider taking a mild painkiller if you are healthy and are able to do so.
Can my six-year-old child get a dreadperm?
This is an hours-long specialty service. Fiercelocks no longer offers service to those under 18. For wee ones and young adults under 18, please inquire elsewhere.
Can I make them long immediately with dread extensions?
Absolutely, the very same day if you like! With pre-ordered supply and about 4 more hours lengthens the average head.
Can I add colorful accents and fullness immediately?
By all means, with pre-ordered supply, each set of ten synth dreads adds about an hour of time to your service.
