Top Dreadlock Hairdressers related questions

Ideally, it's best to get dreadlocks done when your hair has reached six to eight inches. At this length, your dreads can easily be applied but will have more strength and durability. Locking in long hair can also have several benefits. Since dreads grow slowly and make your hair appear shorter than it actually is, having long hair means you can already have longer dreads at the onset.

Yes, you can! Just keep in mind not to wet or shampoo your hair two to four weeks after getting dreads done to avoid frizz. After the initial month, it's a good idea to wash your dreads only when they have accumulated enough dirt. Dreadlocks don't need frequent washing similar to normal hair, so cleaning them once a week to once a month is perfectly acceptable.

When shampooing dreadlocks, choose a 100% natural shampoo made without any chemical ingredients or additives. Shampoos made with herbs and organic ingredients have gentler formulas and are safe to use for most if not all types of hair. Organic shampoos can leave your dreads soft and hydrated without any harsh scents. They also leave no residue behind, which is essential in maintaining their health and appearance.

We suggest booking your appointment as soon as you can. Once you have decided on a date and time, you can put up a task for dreadlocks near you, and available stylists can reach out to you. You can then coordinate with them and ask them questions or suggestions, so you can be readily prepared once your appointment date arrives.

Getting dreadlocks won't necessarily cause itching on your head. If you had just recently installed dreads and find that your head is starting to itch, then it could be due to several reasons. You can either be washing them too often or not washing them enough. It may also be because you're using the wrong soap for your skin. Instead of buying anti-itch products that merely address the symptoms, opt to find out the source of the itch.

Sure! There's no good reason why you can't swim while having dreadlocks. What you need to watch out for, however, is their maintenance after a day at the pool or beach. Make sure to dry your hair immediately after getting out of the water. Squeeze all the water out of your dreads, and leave them to air dry. In case they're still not completely dry after a few hours, squeeze some more using a quality towel.

What do dreadlock hairdressing services include?

Striking, low-maintenance, and full of edge, getting dreadlocks is a great way to show off your style and personality. When you hire a hairdresser through Airtasker, you're getting the convenience of getting dreadlocks installed and repaired whenever and wherever you like. Here are more details on what a dreadlock hairdresser can do for you:

At-home dreadlock appointments

Having no luck searching for an open dreadlocks salon near you? There's no need to panic. With Airtasker, you can quickly find and book a hairdresser for an at-home dreadlock appointment. No need to head out or spend hours in a stuffy salon! Once you hire a Tasker, they can make their way to you and get down to work on all your dreadlock-related needs.

From installing new dreads to maintaining or repairing your current style, our hairdressers will work with you to help you achieve beautiful and healthy-looking locks you can flaunt with confidence. Apart from dreadlocks, we also have plenty of specialists who can apply eyelash extensions for you. With varying lengths, thickness, and curls, eyelash extensions can complete your makeover, so you're always selfie-ready!

Dreadlock repair and maintenance

Though relatively easy to maintain, dreadlocks can still pose problems without proper installation and aftercare. Whether you need help in fixing shoddy dreadlock work by other stylists or looking to refresh your less-than-stellar dreads, we can help you find experts near you who can repair your dreadlocks for you. Using the best hair care products and the most up-to-date dreadlock techniques, you can sit back and relax while they work their magic.

You can even ask them for any tips and suggestions on proper dread maintenance. In case you're looking to touch up your locks for a special occasion or event, you can also get someone to do your makeup for you. This way, you can rock a makeup look that perfectly complements your new 'do!

Permanent dreadlock extensions

Want longer, more volumised dreads? Airtasker can connect you with skilled hairdressers near you who can attach permanent dreadlock extensions with minimal fuss. Typically lasting several years, having permanent dreadlock extensions can mix up your style and give extra pizzazz to your personality! Depending on your preference and current hair conditions, your hairdresser can help you decide on the type and length of extension that's best for you.

Dreads or no dreads, we can connect you with stylists who specialise in hair extensions. From sleek, straight tresses to short, curly locks, our Taskers can install high-quality hair extensions that can up your hair ante without breaking the bank!
