Dreadlock poaching is becoming more common due to rising global demand for human hair dread extensions. So if considering extensions for your own locks, it’s becoming increasingly important to either know how and where they were sourced, or even better, opt for synthetic dread extensions. 

Synth hair has come a long way, baby. Fake locks have never felt so light and real, are an excellent chemical free, non permanent option for adding colour, and are available in every natural and rainbow shade in the spectrum. Adding syth extenders to shorter natural dreads is an excellent, painless way to achieve that flowing Bob Marley mane immediately, and over time, extenders can be trimmed away, leaving only your naturally grown locks behind.

Learn more about our favourite synthetic hair, and where to buy premade synth dreads, in the excellent Knotty Boy Add Ons & Accessories tutorial.

RIP Lewis Marnell, 1982-2013

“Skateboarding took a massive unexpected hit late last week, with the sad and untimely passing of Lewis Marnell.

Lewis’ mother issued the following statement over the weekend:

“FYI and to clear up any quandries relating to Lewis’ sad & untimely passing, he had a massive hypoglycemic reaction which did not respond to ingested glucose. He was at home and was discovered by his wife around 6.30 on Friday night Melb time. It was not possible to resuscitate him and we are all still trying to come to terms with this tragedy. We ask everybody to send out thoughts and prayers of love and comfort. Please keep his memory alive and let this not be a terrible waste.” ”
