The Lockstar Way

Before you show up for instant dreadlocks OR consultation:
#1. Make sure your hair is clean, dry and residue FREE.
When hair is too oily, it causes my tools to slip on the hair. This results in a LONGER session than if you were to show up with clean hair/dreads. Likewise, in preparation for your session, give up using any hair product or conditioner that puts oils on your scalp or into your hair before the session.
All natural or organic is not the holy grail when it comes to preparing for new dreadlocks or encouraging the maturity of instant dreadlocks. Definitely stay away from Dr. Bronner's. It's nice stuff, but it leaves begins thick residue hair. So, avoid it!
Here are some affordable options that I know will remove the residues for most people:
#1. Palmolive Dish Detergent
