We have had an influx of inquiries about dreadlock extensions recently, and we would like to address that.
Wild by Design does NOT offer extension services. We approach dreadlocks from a natural and spiritual standpoint, not as fashion*. With that in mind, dreadlocks are a journey of patience and self love. If this is not the dreadlock route you want to take, we recommend finding a studio that better fits your needs.
Thank you for your understanding,
Wild by Design team
* There are a multitude of reasons that extension services are not offered. There are no exceptions.
All the shampoos that I recommend lather. If it doesn’t lather when you use it here is why and how to fix it…
Why: If you wash less often than once a week, your hair gets pretty oily and environmental debris gets trapped, along with air pollutants and what have you. This makes the shampoo/cleanser work harder to break it all down. Rather than lather the shampoo/cleanser just breaks down the oils.
Fix: Wash twice. Yup, it is that simple. Do a little scrub and make sure you get your shampoo/cleanser everywhere on your first wash. Rinse your locs (don’t worry about being thorough with this rinse). Then “soap up” again. This time your shampoo/cleanser of choice should lather beautifully.
That didn’t work? You might not be using a truly dreadlock safe shampoo, OR you need to do a thorough deep clean. Sometimes stuff gets trapped at the core of the loc that you can’t see on the surface. A good deep clean can clear that right up. (Recipe on website)
In order to provide the best services possible, I am very selective about the clients I take. If I don’t feel that we would get along, I will refer you to someone else. Everyone’s time is valuable, and life is too short.
Also, mean people suck. I am never intentionally mean or abrasive, and I expect the same from each of my clients. Disrespect of me, my studio, or my time will be followed by a warning. If disrespect continues I will remove you from my client list. All of this is done in order to make sure that everyone is healthy and happy.
Thank you so much for understanding.
