Human & synthetic hair extensions or wigs need care and maintenance for best performance and longevity:

  • Comb hair using a wide-tooth comb. Start at the end moving upward toward the wefted base. Wash hair using warm water and shampoo with products that do not contain silicone, alcohol, sulfate, or peroxide.
  • Do not use rough (harsh) products for washing, styling, or conditioning hair.
  • Do not use products with alcohol base for shining hair.
  • Use silk or satin scarf to wrap hair at bedtime .Avoid going to be with wet hair, make sure the hair is completely dry.

Hair Extension Styling Tips

To style hair extensions, use a looper brush, or a smooth styling comb . Start at the ends and gently work your way up, brushing or combing in a downward motion. Use alcohol-free styling products on hair extensions. Avoid over-use to prevent product buildup.

  • Generally, heated styling appliances can be used ONLY on 100% human hair extensions. Always do a test curl first, and use the lowest temperature level that is effective. Overuse of curling irons , flat irons and blow dryers a will shorten the life of human hair extensions. Heated curling or straightening irons should NEVER be used on synthetic hair.
  • All hair extensions have gone through a very intense chemical color process to get to their final color, so changing the color with hair color will not produce accurate results.

Step 1 {Washing}

Washing your dreads regularily is key to growing a healthy head of locks. Contrary to popular belief, shampooing your hair will actually help dreads develop faster and tighter, with the added bonus of smelling great!

Once you've waited 1-2 weeks after creating your locks, you can begin washing them once every week or so, depending on your need. When you wash dreads, you only need to be concerned with your scalp - don't worry about soaping up your locks. Give it a good scrub with the Knotty Boy Dread Shampoo Bar or Liquid Shampoo , following the detailed instructions found on the Shampoo pages. Both are formulated especially for folks with dreadlocks, and are designed to rinse cleanly leaving no residue behind. (Most other shampoos are made with chemical conditioning ingredients that un-tangle knots - exactly what you're trying not to do!) The water and shampoo rinsing from your scalp will be enough to cleanse the locks themselves.

Washing with Knotty Boy Dread Shampoo also helps prevent, cool and treat scalp irritation or itchiness that develops - a real lifesaver sometimes! See Troubleshooting below for more info on itchy scalps.

Step 2{Drying}

Smelly dreads have a common cause: trapped moisture! Making sure your dreads are 100% dry, all the way through, will prevent that musty, stanky-towel smell from developing. If you wash your hair more than once a week, or otherwise wet your locks often, make sure to use a blowdryer to accelerate the drying process. If you've got the time, air drying is also fine. Simply wait a day or two before proceeding with any maintenance routine that involves using Wax.

Here are a few guidelines to follow:

  • Don't tie up your wet dreads or pile them in a hat. Air must circulate freely
  • NEVER apply Wax to wet hair. This will trap moisture inside, creating a stinky mess.
  • Use a shower cap when showering but not washing hair

Step 3 {Palm Roll}

  • Palm rolling is your most basic, and most important, tool of maintenance. Most lumps, bumps, kinks and general disarray can be prevented and cured with regular palm rolling. Doing this when your hair is damp will help them keep a cylindrical shape, as well as encourage loose hairs to reintegrate back into the lock. It will also help separate and keep new locks from grabbing onto and growing into each other. Don't forget to palm roll, palm roll, palm roll, and consider adding to your maintenance regiment the ever-popular LockSteady Tropical Tightening Gel for quick and easy tidying and increased lock-acceleration.
  • To palm roll, start at the root and briskly roll your dread between your palms to the end.

Step 4 {Root Tightening}

This is the step that you have to come to our salon to get it done by our dreadlocks stylist.
