Yeah, loose hairs are a pain and they make otherwise sweet lookin' dreads look neglected. Dread Balling makes quick work of loose hairs, especially when you have a bit of Lock Peppa on your fingers, but getting those dread balls deep into the dread where they will stay and lock can be tough with your fingers alone. In comes the Loose Hair tool by DreadHeadHQ.
The dread tool is every bit as useful for maintaining mature dreads as it is for working with new dreads. It’s a huge time saver...which means less maintenance effort and better looking dreads all the time.
Dread tools can be helpful in all three parts of the dread:
1)At the roots you’re always going to have a few loose hairs as some of the new growth near the edge of the sections will "miss" the dread and just hang out.
2)In the body of the dread, loose hair can be pulled in, keeping the dreads looking smooth and tight.
3)Tips often form oddly with wispy straight strands sticking out here and there.
There is a rounded point at the top of the tool which makes it much easier to slide it though the inside of a dread without popping out accidentally. It's also easier to penetrate tighter dreads.
AWESOME SAUCE: You can twist the handle apart to reveal a stash compartment that you can fill with Lock Peppa. This is supa useful since Lock Peppa and the maintenance tool go hand in hand... You might even leave a few rubber bands wrapped around the handle of the tool creating the ultimate "Swiss-Army-Dread-Tool" for quick and effective dread maintenance at home or in the field!
