So, after 4 months of paying someone to dread Toney’s hair we gave up. All she did way put a ton of sticky liquid in his hair and twirl it into a bunch of coils. Needless to say, It hadn’t even started locking, and didn’t look remotely like dreads.
We ordered their starter kit, and had it in hand within a week (we are in Texas and they are in Canada). Sat down Satuday and got to work on his head. Now before we go any further, I have to tell you how GOOD this stuff smells! I couldn’t stop sniffing the soap bars, that’s how yummy it is! The kit comes with (funny) instructions on how to dread, and they have instructions on their website as well. I dare you to try and read their site with a straight face :)
Anywho, back to dreading.
I have weak wrists, and can’t sit forward for too long at a time so it took me 14 hours (yes I timed it) to do his whole head. I think a normal person could do it in a reasonable time :) Plus the fact that I had to undo what the last lady did to his hair…
I think it looks great!
Another plus to them…they are super responsive! I think the longest they have taken to respond to one of my emails is 2 hours. Much better than other places :)
I highly recommend Knotty Boy to EVERYONE who has or wants dreads!
