Did You Know?

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)

On Being Selective

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.

We DO NOT do extensions

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, I recommend finding a studio that fits your style better.
