How to prepare for your appointment

You have booked your appointment to get your dream dreads created, or you are treating your locs to some love and care with a maintenance session.  But you are wondering what, if anything you need to do before you come to your appointment, or if you need to bring anything along with you to your session with me.  Well, here is all the information that you will need. 

Preparing your hair 

If having new dreads created you need to come with clean, dry and brushed hair.  You need to wash your hair with a residue free shampoo.  A specialist dread shampoo is best to use, but if you dont have one, washing up liquid will do the job.
I recommend using one of the Raw Roots shampoo bars. You can either order one online or you can buy one directly from me in the Studio. Please message me to arrange this. 

If you want to dye your hair, do this before your appointment. 

If you are coming for a maintenance session you need to have clean and dry hair.  I cannot work with wet hair as your hair is weaker and may get damaged during the maintenance session.  Please wash your hair 48 hours before your appointment to ensure that it will be dry enough for me to work on. 

What should I bring? 
  • Appointments can be long so please feel free to bring work, a book etc with you incase you want something to do. I have films we can watch and spotify so we can listen to music.
  • No shoes are allowed on in my house so please bring slippers if you get cold feet. 
  • Food and Drink – there are some great places near me to buy food if you forget to bring any with you.  I am just a few minutes walk away from St Marks Road and there is a fabulous deli in Sweatmart there that sells amazing indian food if thats your vibe. 
  • Money to pay the remaining balance of your fee. There is are ATM ‘s on St Marks road. Please visit  the ATM before your appointment so you are ready to pay at the end.  You can also pay by bank transfer but I would prefer the balance to be paid in cash. Thanks
  • If you want to smoke or vape then you can use my garden. Please put your ciggerette butts in the ashtray.  
  • If you want to keep going out for ciggerettes/to vape then your appointment will take longer and you will be charged for the extra time. 


Arrival times and leaving when appointment is over
  • Please do not arrive any earlier than 5 minutes before your appointment. 
  • If you are really early then please wait until its time for your appointment before knocking. There are plenty of nice parks, cafes and pubs around the area where you can go while you wait. 
  • Once our appointment is over plesase leave promptly.  
  • If you are waiting to be picked up then please wait outside or go to one of the many nice parks, cafes and pubs around the area until your lift arrives.
