What's the difference between DIY and professionally created dreadlocks?

Most dreads get started using a version of the backcomb-and-wax method we share in our Knotty Boy video tutorial.

The knots are held together by Dread Wax, and by your constant attention. Dreads started by our stylists are woven using our proven and professional techniques, resulting in a very tightly locked dreads from day one which mature much faster overall.

The technique has to be seen to be believed...but the simple explanation is that we use very small crochet hooks to felt the dreads. We don't "interlock" the roots (and we suggest you don't, either!) avoiding holes or weak spots.

Dreads started by The Dreadquarters retain much more length than strictly backcombed ones, and require less product application and overall maintenance.
