When you get bored of your dreadlocks...
People think that having dreads is easy as it saves you salon time and all the other hair troubles out there. However, while that’s partly true, dreads also require a lot of care and constant maintenance. Different people loc their hair for different reasons such as religion or even simply for a trendy look. Dreads can be a little boring though, especially for someone who is used to switching up hairstyles whenever they feel like. But, that doesn’t mean that you cannot upgrade your natty dreads when you get bored of the look. Here are a few ways you can spruce up your dreads hairstyle:
1. If they’re too long, cut them a little bit for a new look.
Might sound crazy to cut locs you have waited so long to get to a certain length but, they will grow again and if you’re bored of the look, why not switch it up?
2. Curl them.
3. Go for a pop of color.
Vibrant colors are so in at the moment and you can opt to go for that young, wild, and free look if your job and age allows hehe.
4. Shave the sides or one side for a mohawk look.
5. Style them into a funky do.
6. Ombre locs anyone?
7. Accessorize with strings, and beaded or metallic accessories.
8. Turban up on weekends.
