Dreadlocks are a long-lasting, natural style that has been around for years. Grammy nominee, Ledisi is a master of dreads and I love her curly and glamorous up-styles and you too can get her fabulous look.

Prep those locks

Before curling make sure your hair has been shampooed with Jabu Stone Natural Look shampoo (R29,99, Clicks).jabu stone shampoo-001
After washing and drying, apply a locking gel like Jamaican Mango & Lime locking gel (R30, Clicks) or a moisturizing spray such as Stylin’ Dredz oil moisturizing spray (R40, Rubybox).

Use rollers to curl your locks to the roots, then sit under a dryer or use a hand held one on low heat, until the locks are completely dry.

If you have a dry scalp allow your locks to air dry and then apply Jamaican Mango & Lime protein conditioner (R32,50, Clicks) to moisture your scalp. Take the rollers out and style as you wish.Jamaican

Alternatively you can sleep with rollers in and style the next day – just make sure you give your locks a good spray after styling.
