How to Combine Dreadlocks with The Lock Docta

Here's another option for combining dreadlocks using a lock doctor. It does not lend itself well to thinner dreads but it works well for medium dreads. You're basically pushing hair from one dread into the adjacent dread. The goal is to push only as much hair as is needed to keep the two dreads together. This is an advanced technique and should not be attempted by newbies.


This technique has a high potential for abuse. Done responsibly it works very well, I've used it on a number of my dreads, but if you decide to go this route use caution and good judgement. If you're uncertain, leave it to a professional or use another combining technique. The last thing you want to do is compromise your dreadies.
