Long and winding rope to dreadlocks

Jun 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: Front Page Layout, Latest News, News

Dreadlocks and piercings set the scene for Wellington’s alternative fashion these days.

Not just popular with youth, dreadlocks and piercings are a statement and a way of life for people of all ages.

Creating dreadlocks professionally involves adding a perming solution to the hair after it has been backcombed and set with pipe cleaners.

Jake Cotter, of Upper Hutt, was one of the people who agreed to show his dreadlocks being made in a step-by-step process.

  1. Good article & photos Kerry, thanks. I could almost smell that perming solution. You didn’t mention the practical advantages of dreads — they are are great for saving $$ on product, and avoiding bad hair days, especially if you have fine, oily hair. As mum of a blonde dread girl who lives overseas, I get soppy when I see a young Dreadstar.

  2. interesting article but quite out of date, it is really a bad idea to put perming solution in your hair if you want your dreadlocks to last. its is a really strong chemical which shrinks your hair and damages it leading to broken unhappy dreads. the best way to have professional dreadlocks is to have them backcombed and hooked with no products whatsoever. healthy dreads are happy dreads. check out my site for more info thanks
