Dreadhead in serious help!

This is Zacharias Before

A while back I was asking for “A Dreadhead in serious need of help!”.


I got loads of replies from dreadheads all over the world and it seams like a lot of them are in need of some help. This is Zakarias with his lovely dreadlocks that I decided to help.

When I e-mailed back and forth with Zacharias’ mum (also a dreadhead) I felt that Zackarias was exactly what I was looking for to do this. Zacharias’ dreadlock story started when he was about 3-4 years old when his parents decided to let his hair dread. So his dreadlocks have come natural and they (his parents) let the hair dread itself, but also by helping it along with separating them. Lately, Zakarias was irritated to see a lot of dust and fluff in his dreadlocks so he started to pick it out of them, after a while he ended up with a hair of dreadlocks that were short on one side and long on the other side. He also had some dreadlocks that had grown together that needed separation, and also some dreadlocks that he thought were to thick. The perfect job for me This day was the first time in Zacharias’ life that he had been to the hairdresser and I felt honored that he had trust in me in letting me help him with his dreadlocks. When I started going thru his hair we talked a bit on what his dream dreadlocks would look like and also what he definitely didn’t want. I started separating his hair and went thru it all, extended some dreads with human hair and I even made some new dreadlocks. For the human hair I found three shades of browns that matches his own hair color and I mixed them all in different shades that I then used in different places on his hair, depending on what his own hair color looked like. All in all it took about 6 hours to do this makeover, and we had a fun day together with a big change for his dreadlocks going on at the same time.

You can see in the video below how, and what I did, to fix his dreadlocks:
