Welcome to DreadlockTruth!

Get the lowdown on dreadlocks!

DreadlockTruth is an online community of people from all across the globe that have come together to share their information, experience, and knowledge regarding dreadlocks with others. This website is built on our members' collective input, and is here for you so join our friendly, easy-going online community to get your questions answered, browse thousands of photos, post your own, and meet new friends!

We'll tell you how to start, maintain, dye, decorate and live with dreadlocks. We have tons of tutorials, advice, information, and experiences to share with you, free of cost and completely unbiased.

We aim to educate others about dreadlocks and dispel the myths that surround them – that's everything you need to know, without the corporate marketing. That's right, we're one of the very few dreadlock related websites that do not sell or promote any unnecessary products on our pages.

Most websites urge you that you must use their products if you wish to obtain dreadlocks or grow them faster - this is not true! If you are looking to start dreadlocks, we are here to aid you in avoiding needless expenses and harmful methods such as dread wax, which can be detrimental to the locking process.

In short, if you're researching dreadlocks: We're here to help!
