Expert Salon Services in Portland, OR Styled Hair International Hairstyles in Portland, OR



Dreadlocks are one of the most popular and eye-catching hairstyles that are easy for new hair to incorporate into, but still, require different maintenance routines than other hairstyles. Even more variety in maintenance needs applies to different hair qualities such as thickness, texture, oil production in the scalp, and how well your dreadlocks tighten and lock together. By visiting our specialists for dreadlock maintenance, you can make sure your hair is as healthy and strong as possible so you can avoid the dreaded broken dreads or dry and itchy scalp.

Over time, as your dreadlocks grow longer, they’ll become significantly heavier. At this point, many people who aren’t as well-versed in the needs of their hair experience broken dreads. Individual dreadlocks may break off at the root due to the weight of the dread and the condition of their scalp. Our stylists have a variety of products and methods to make sure your scalp and hair are as healthy as possible and prevent broken dreadlocks or other unpleasant side effects.


Are you looking for gorgeous and long-lasting hair or dreadlock extensions? Don’t feel like waiting for your hair to grow long enough to form into dreadlocks or other stunning hairstyles?

We specialize in hair and dreadlock extensions that look and function like your own hair. With proper care and regular maintenance by our team, you can keep your hair looking great for a long time. If you’re not sure what type or style of extensions best suits your own hair or appearance, feel free to stop by and discuss your needs with our skilled and experienced specialists. We’ll help you find a hairstyle you feel great in.
