*Can I get my my dreads wet? & Are they washable? Yes they're fully washable, I recommend washing them in an eco friendly shampoo (without the harsh foaming agents) In the UK we use Urtekram brand. Do make sure that you thoroughly rinse them as any soap suds left in the dreads could rot the fibers. To dry them I wouldn't use a hairdryer but let them dry naturally within 24 hours, by sitting in a warm room. If they are cared for they can be washed and re-installed as many times as you like.
* Can you offer wholesale Yes we can, please message us your requirements.
* Can you tell me the exact length? (clip in dreads) No. This is because each dread is hand made and when we felt them we have no idea of how the wool will shrink during this process, that's why we give approx sizes.
* How do I install your dreads? We are currently making our own videos of how to install the double and single ended dreads but for now here's a couple of good videos on youtube..... How to install double ended dreads - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ca0ECeC2KJ8 How to install single ended dreads - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBxlrp-z-dI
*How many dreads do I get? It depends which dreads you are referring to, please check the description on the listing first, it should say on there, if you're still not sure then send us a link to the product you mean in your message.
*Can I get my order by the date I need them? We will always try our best to get your dreads to you by a certain date and we will say if we don't think it realistic. If you want them for a certain date please let us know asap. Please note though that once we've shipped them we have no control over how long the shipping company will take to deliver them, so please don't get moody with us if they don't arrive with you in time for that festival your going to.
