If you’ve read the page entitled “other dreadlock methods” then you’ll now be aware of the different dreadlock methods available and what the results are. Unless you want a lot of work involved in your decision to get dreads, then Divine Hand & Hook is the way to go! The choice to get dreadlocks is a big one and we want you to be totally wrapped in the end result.
But just in case you haven't, we will quickly explain here... there are two main ways to make dreads.
The more common method involves backcombing or twisting and ripping the hair to get it to "matt" up. In some dread salons chemicals are added and then your dread is rolled and other lock products are added, such as lock peppa, lock dust or dread wax. The result is a “dreadlock style” because the dreads are NOT locked at all. The hair inside is still loose. It is matted and only held together with chemicals and/or wax.
The result of this mainstream method is sticky dreads that become loose, fluffy and sometimes completely open up as soon as they are washed. This can be very upsetting if you’ve just paid $600-1000 for your new dreads, which is often the case at the main street salons. It can be equally upsetting if you and a friend have spent $100 on a locking kit and 3 days locking your hair! Unless of course you're into the ongoing weekly maintenance needed.
If you want beautiful, neat, tight, permanent dreads you want to forget that painful tight back-combing for hours, forget the chemicals and pipe cleaners, forget the salon, forget the YouTube videos that teach you hundreds of non experienced ways to make dreads and forget the wax! Why would you want all that stuff if you want dreads? Didn’t you want to simplify things?!
SO WHAT DO WE DO THEN?!
At Divine Dreadlocks, we provide the solution to this age old dreadlock problem.
We matt each clean strand of hair using our hands and a comb then pass a 0.6mm crochet hook through almost every millimeter of each strand to pull the hairs from the outside to the inside, thus creating a strong and permanent LOCK. This is then repeated down the length of the dread with the utmost care until all the hair is neatly, tightly & permanently locked!
This method is called the "DIVINE HAND & HOOK" (DH&H) and it is best way to get dreads. It's also the most thorough hook method around.
Crochet hook dreadlocking has increased in popularity since 2010 due to videos on YouTube and word of mouth, but often hook Locticians' only lock each strand about 50%, leaving some areas of the dread unlocked. Some hairdressers now pick up a hook at the end of the backcombing process and pass it through each dread a few times, but anything less than very thorough hook locking means the dread still isn't "locked" properly. What it does mean, is that there is still room for the dread to lock, the dread will still be a bit squishy and will be much more fragile than if it were locked more thoroughly. Dreads locked anything less than 80% with a hook, will get fluffy quickly, are at risk of loosening up or coming open and thus need more work to ensure they become nice, tight, permanent dreads.
At Divine Dreadlocks we pass the hook through 90 - 100% of the dread to ensure they become instant permanent dreadLOCKS right from day one. Not dreaded dreads. This means your new dreads won't get loose, don't get fluffy fast and don't need much maintenance in comparison to dreads made with other methods.
The Divine Dreadlocks MOTO is providing the highest quality dread work at excellent prices to ensure everyone is happy! And our MISSION is to teach as many people as possible the "Divine Hand & Hook" all natural method of dreadlocking to ensure that even people who can't afford to get dreads made by a quality Loctician can
get divine dreads with the help of some friends by using one of our great online courses.
