Dreadlocks in Tampa

There’s no doubt you’re familiar with dreadlocks. This hairstyle has been present for thousands of years, reliving its glory ever since one Bob Marley rose to fame. You’ve seen them, maybe you’ve thought about getting them done. Well, if so, then consider this the sign you’ve been waiting for! Mix things up and get this impressive hairstyle! Head to Booksy to find the best hair stylists doing dreadlocks in Tampa! What are dreadlocks? This may seem like a question with an obvious answer, but in fact, it’s all more complex. Sometimes referred to as an alternative to braids, they’re quite different when it comes to making them and then later caring for them. Dreadlocks are essentially created by matting and rolling hair into rope-like strands. There are a few methods available when forming locs, like the "twist and rip", backcombing, interlocking, and palm rolling. There are many misconceptions about caring for your dreadlocks once they’re created. However, there are a few key steps you should take when maintaining this hairstyle. First and foremost, use residue-free shampoo. A week after getting your locs you can wash your hair between one and three times a week, always with this type of shampoo. Next, it’s very important you always fully dry them. Leaving them wet can result in an unpleasant smell. Finally, if you start having the impression that your locs are loosening up, opt for some dread wax to palm roll them.  To truly up your game when caring for your dreads, you can also remember about a few other things. For starters, purchase a good conditioning spray. This can bring you sweet relief when your scalp starts to become dry and itchy. When you go to bed, put on a headscarf that will help prevent your locs from getting lint and fuzz tangled in. Apart from a residue-free shampoo, opt for natural hair products. There’s a smaller chance of chemical residue being left. Finally, to tighten up your strands opt for salt water spray and rolling new hair growth directly at the roots. And remember, you can always go to your hair specialist for extra maintenance as well! I’m sold! How can I book an appointment online to get dreadlocks in Tampa? We’re glad you asked!
