camden locks frequently asked questions

Do I need to book in for a consultation for new dreadlocks/maintenance?

No, there is no need to book for a consultation – please pop in any day after 2pm at your convenience. We can then discuss your hair and what you’d like to achieve, method and pricing etc

I live quite far away from the shop, can I email over some pictures of my hair instead of coming in for a consultation?

Yes, please do. We will need to see the length and thickness of your hair, so please send us a picture of the front, back and sides of your hair. It’s also useful for us to see the style you’re ultimately aiming to achieve – so have a Google and send that too!

You can now also schedule a video consultation by booking.

How long does my hair need to be to start dreadlocks?

In order to start dreadlocks on European/Asian texture hair, it must be at least 4-5″ in length. With afro hair (depending on texture), we can start instant locks however a consultation is definitely required.can start the dreadlock process with a gel-twist method at a shorter length.

We do not always recommend using a gel twist as the dreadlocks tend to be dull and build up will occur.

Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
Marlene, Hani, and Co are the best!
I have had a long journey with Marlene and Hani.
We first started our journey together in Jan 2013 and my hair was “in dire straits” as you can see from the photos (it’s obvious which is the before and after) but with a lot of hard work and perseverance from Marlene, and hope and listening to her aftercare instructions from me, I am back to being proud of my natural locks, and relish in the compliments I continue to receive from strangers.
Thank you Marlene and Hani, keep on rocking!
See you for my next appointment.
Hugs and love xxx

I’ve been coming to Camden Locks for the last three years and I honestly couldn’t think of a better place to get my dreadlocks looked after.

The service from the moment I enter the store till leaving is impeccable. Marlene and the ladies are always ready to help and give the best advice anything from hair to dating!

Highly recommended and you won’t be disappointed 💪🏾

Camden Locks was my first experience with dreading my hair. They were extremely friendly, they re-assured me and gave me snacks at one point (it was a long session). Overall i could tell that they care about what they do and their customers. My locks came out even better than i expect and I will definitely be returning.
