InstantLoc Dread Extensions™

Over the last few decades, Dreadlocks and Braids have integrated themselves into popular culture and are considered hugely fashionable in many circles. Lots of young people have decided to go in for the look with mixed results depending on who they go to, to get their  dreads done. With customers pouring in from all sorts of income brackets, it’s not surprising that the product they get varies significantly in terms of quality too. As we know high quality products cost money, and when it comes to dreadlocks, you really do get what you pay for.

A lot of people today want the look but do not wish to invest in high quality products that use real hair. Instead, they prefer to invest in products that use synthetic hair and are hence much cheaper. However, such products come with hidden costs in terms of the look and its longevity. For example, I’ve seen many young people today go in for a product called Faux Locs, which uses low-cost synthetic hair called Marley Hair, and then come around to my shop to correct their errors because they weren’t satisfied with the fake hair. Faux Locs have been known to get sticky and tangle together as well and get way too frizzy. In some cases they unravel and look to shiny implying they are synthetic dreadlocks.  Another thing I’ve heard users complain about is the sheer weight of those things and how painful it can sometimes be to be hauling those extra pounds on your head.

My product, InstantLoc Dread Extensions™, side steps all these problems and gives you a natural, long term look free of hassles. I use real, high quality, organic hair in my extensions ™

Bee does Dreadlock Extensions which is a rare type of style if you want the Instant look of Dreads. Depending on choice of hair Human or synthetic used,  you can choose to keep 

in your hair forever. ** I only use synthetic hair if your hair is a rare color can't be found in human hair.  Other than that Human hair is best option for realistic look as well as your able to keep it in for life.  Synthetic hair will begin to scratch and itch after a while due to the synthetic fibers.

  So in other words if you had permed hair but thought you had to cut your hair off to start over, your wrong.  Bee can start your locks with the length of hair you have now.  Instant locks Bee calls it, is a way of starting locks without having to go thru the rough ugly stages.  Grow out your natural roots till we can palm roll twist your roots just like normal dreadlocks.  You can continue to add more  hair to roots of extensions to roots when coming in to do your maintenance after 4-5 weeks, or retwist your natural roots to start our own lock naturally.  Most people with thin hair choose to add more hair every time they do maintainance, however those with thicker new growth natural hair can start there own naturally by just palm roll twisting roots. 

Bee also re-attaches your natural dreadlocks that you may have cut off years ago, however want your look back.  Bee will have your look back in one day.  With Bee techniques at Braidsbybee everyone will think your hair grew back overnight, best part about it you can say you decided you wanted your dreads back and your found just the right person to make it happen.  You will be amazed with the work we have done with re-attaching someones natural locks.  We also have clients that has purchased dreads from online or was given natural healthy looking dreads from a family member and we have attached it to your own hair to make it your own.  Now if you don't have any dread at all, or just want dread extensions well we can do that too.  We create dreads any size, length and color and giving them a better look then they originally had with the extra length this process may add.  We match your hair color, we recommend the best process or best options for your hair.  We will offer you options never heard of before because this is what we specialize in.
