Honestly, i don't think it could ever been a full time job. I also wouldn't feel right about taking folks money just to teach them how to naturally lock their hair. Then again, you could sell the information at a nominal fee then maybe if they wanted to T&R sectioning you could do that for some cash. You could then branch out and do all natural soaps for dreads, sell beads and accessories and you could go further and branch out more fulfilling similar interests between dread heads if you could start an actual business and gain clientele and then you'd be catering to audiences outside of the dreadlocked community but our community is too small I think to ever actually make it a day job.
I actually know of quite a few people who run dreadlock businesses like that. But I think your time and skill is always worth compensation. Thanks for the input!
It's a great course. The method you learn in it is ultra tidy and involves no loss of length, so it's really great when you get a client who wants them ultra neat from the start, but also works well with folk who like them a bit wild. I'm a huge fan of free form locks as well, but I love being able to cater to all sorts of clients. Here's some of my work: My client
I tend to be in the leave them alone to get on with it camp, so I've never had the inclination to do others. I think if I was asked to help section and start them off by a friend then I'd be happy to just because I remember how much my arms ached by the time I'd backcombed my own in.

That's awesome that you make your own soap, how do you go about it? I sell a natural dreadlock shampoo soap bar in my salon that I love, it's not overly oily, but it'd be great to know how to make my own too. Do you have any tutorials that you'd recommend?
I just wanted to ask you guys if any of you have considered becoming a dreadloctician? Either full-time or part-time. How were you thinking about going about it, or do you not really know? For those who do dreadlocking professionally or semi-pro, how did you start up your business?

SketchyMagpie: I'd suggest reading our FAQ as dreads coming loose is very normal in the early stages.

SketchyMagpie: Hey Danny. Depending on your hair type, you might need a few more inches. I started from short hair with 2 sets of dreads and they didn't stay in until my hair was 5 inches long

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.
