Top 10 Best Looking Dreadlock Hairstyles June 27, 2016

Dreadlocks may be a term some of you are not too familiar with. It is quite a popular hairstyle and we Indians are surely aware of this ancient hairstyle as we have seen it on sadhus and yogis. These are called ‘jata’ in Hindi. The trend of creating dreadlocks on the hair is quite in vogue now and many have even tried this hairstyle.

There are many misconceptions about this hairstyle. Many believe that those with dreadlocks refrain from washing their hair. The fact remains that many dreadlocks techniques require the person to brush and shampoo the hair in order to create the dreadlocks.

There are two usual ways of creating dreadlocks. The ancient method is to refrain from brushing and letting the hair grow out and get interlocked in the process to create varying textures, sizes and lengths of dreadlocks. The method is also known as the ‘Neglect’ method.

The modern method, however, is used by salons to create artificial dreadlocks on the hair. The salons use special type of beeswax to create the dreadlocks. The use of a special type of wax helps in the removal of it completely using hot water. When the new dreads reach the locking stage, the wax is removed. The benefit is that the customer may get any shape and size dreadlocks as they please.
