Creation and maintenance of premium natural dreads

Dreads Expert, a hairdresser specializing in the creation and maintenance of premium natural dreads, presents its hair salon dedicated to locks. On this site, you'll find answers to all your questions about dreadlocks. First, let me introduce myself in a few lines.

Who am I? A dread hairdresser specializing in the creation and maintenance of premium natural dreads.

I'm Lisah Sandström, creator of natural locks, founder of the Dreads Expert hair salon, the website and the Dreads Academy training institute.

I live in Saint Raphaël (Var) on the French Riviera, more exactly between Nice (Alpes Maritimes) and Saint Tropez (Var) in the PACA region(Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur), in France.

I am a Swedish national of Finnish origin from Rosvik in Swedish Lapland. I am trilingual in Swedish, French and English.

I hold a C.A.P and a B.E.P in hairdressing, as well as a master's degree in the creation, application and shaping of natural dreadlocks.

My business? Hair salon dedicated to the creation and maintenance of natural locks

I am a hairdresser specialized in natural dreadlocks and have been working since 2001. I create, therefore, only authentic locks and extensions made of real hair.

My services also include various types of maintenance and fitness treatments for your locks.

I create dreadlocks for men, women, teens and children. As an expert in creating natural dreads on afro, fine and thinning hair, your dream of wearing locks becomes a reality.

Why create and maintain premium natural dreads?

My passion for dreads began when I discovered Lenny Kravitz on MTV. His locks fascinated me. I was obsessed with wearing them! I did it when I was 12.
In 2001, I created my 1st dreadlocks as an amateur. To perfect my technique, I took courses in hair salons that were experts in natural dreads. This enabled me to create beautiful natural locks for my friends.
In 2006, I became a natural dreadlocks hairdresser. I worked in Sweden and the Netherlands in hair salons specializing in dreads.

My expertise? The creation and maintenance of premium natural crochet dreads

To create dreads, I only use crochet hooks. This object was originally used to create lace. It's the ideal tool for creating and maintaining beautiful locks.
My experience and training have enabled me to develop my own technique for creating and maintaining premium natural dreads. I create your dreads gently and painlessly.
My artistic flair allows me to sublimate your locks.

My work philosophy? Excellence in the creation and maintenance of premium natural dreads.

I position myself in the premium segment of natural dread creation and maintenance. Indeed, I aim for excellence in my art.
I'm passionate about the beauty of natural dreadlocks and how to enhance them. Highlighting faces, eyes and wrinkles, without ever letting the locks take over, these are my daily challenges.
Every dreadlock project requires time and commitment. I carefully analyze faces, hair types and colors to create natural dreads that reflect the soul of each individual.

The dreadlocks extensions I use are made by myself with great care. The hair I use to make them is of the highest quality.

My aim is twofold: to create high quality, aesthetically pleasing locks and to make my clients proud to wear them.

Where to find me? The Dreads Expert workshop

My hair salon dedicated to the creation and maintenance of premium natural dreads is located at 205, rue Isaac Newton, 83700 Saint Raphaël (Var).
Several parking lots are nearby.
I mainly cater for people with reduced mobility, pregnant women and/or women who have just given birth.

I found "Dreads expert" on the net, the best-rated site for natural dread extensions. So I made an appointment to discuss my project with Lisah, a pretty Swedish woman with a beautiful accent who knows what she's talking about. Despite my already eccentric look, I needed to be reassured that dreads wouldn't be a constraint!!!!Yesterday was the date to move on to the realization of my project.I spent the day with Lisah, who loves "her passion", creating dreads. This woman lives what she does, and takes great pleasure in seeing her hair evolve. Lisah, thank you for being who you are, and thank you for the quality of your workreadmore

Lisah is an expert who takes on your project with enthusiasm, seriousness and great conscientiousness.. . professional.My project was specific and had a triple objective:firstly to get rid of a salt-and-pepper root effect with colored lengths, secondly to realize a locks dream I'd had for at least 25 years, as well as to give a boost to my transition to a more mature and assertive age. Lisah was a great listener and a great teacher, not only in her professional and artistic skills, but also in her patience and her determination to achieve a 100% successful result (a whole day of tireless dreading of an extremely full head of hair).

Ever since I was a little girl, I've dreamed of having pretty dreads, but life got in the way for years. In. .. early 2022, I plan to quit my job and move 600 kilometers away. A change of life, surrounded by many trials and tribulations. I then decided to embark on the dreadloks adventure, for this new book, this new adventure. I started by looking in the Dordogne, where I was based, to see if extensions were feasible, then in the south, towards my new home. I came across a rather strange site, and while browsing other sites I came across Lisah's site. I realized that someone in the Dordogne had stolen her photos to sell her own services. After taking a good look at Lisah's site, I took the plunge. And I have no regrets. I now have pretty dreadlok extensions that I hope to keep as long as possible. Lisah is gentle and very pleasant, we chatted and laughed. Thanks again Lisah for this day, and see you soon for the maintenance of my locks ????more

A month ago, I didn't hesitate for a second to fly from Alsace to have my dreads created by Lisah.... I'm almost 40, and I wanted my hairstyle to be classy and bohemian to reflect my true personality. With my graying, frizzy hair, I hadn't been able to do my hair for months. What's more, I couldn't get my hair to grow, as it damaged too quickly. I've got a pretty nice face, but I'd lost confidence in my image. Thanks to Lisah, what a transformation! I can change my hairstyle 10 times a day if I feel like it, and it stands up on its own! I've never had so many compliments on my appearance. And yet I'm a consultant, so far from doing me any disservice, dreads are an affirmation of my style and my artistic side. And the look on my husband's face? Rrrrrrrrr... Lisah, you're sweet, empathetic, thoughtful and, above all, really talented. If I had to do it all over again? I'd rather do it 1,000 times than once. Thank you for everything. ????readmore

I did a dreadlock maintenance service in her very pretty salon, and I was. .. welcomed like I've never been welcomed by a dread hairdresser, Lisah knows how to make you feel at ease ☕????????I thought my dreads were pretty well maintained, but I saw how wrong I was, I've never seen them in such great shape!With her personalized advice, know-how, techniques, speed and efficiency, Lisah is, as her boutique indicates, an expert in her field. ????I'm used to Afro hairdressers who are just as expert, but there's a huge difference with Lisah. Gentle and attentive, she knows exactly what you need for the nature of your hair, whether it's for maintenance or the products to use.I came out looking brand new with a real guideline for having the most beautiful locs ✨Beautiful conversations accompany the service, it's a very pleasant moment, perfect from start to finish ????See you soon Lisah ????readmore

I discovered Lisah over 2 and a half years ago on the networks, as I was looking for someone to create dreads for me,... unfortunately I couldn't afford her services for my creation at the time. I've been following her regularly ever since, and I had the honor (yes, really, I was very moved ☺️) of going under her hook and golden hands yesterday, and she's really an extraordinary person, with a warm welcome, a fast and incredible service! I've had the opportunity to do root retapes at other people's homes, much longer and much less well. She's full of good advice, shares what she knows and recommends great products. What more can I say? Go for it!????✨✨✨✨✨❤️read more

Lisah is very professional and calm and has a knowledge and passion that makes her look great. I've always had dreadsin my head.. . through my choice of characters in video games and especially through reggae. When I was trying to get started I came across Dread Expert and then at two gigs he was also recommended to me so I got in touch a few months ago. We talked by phone/email with pictures and I went there. We saw from my face what would be the best match. Having seen people with Lisah's dreads I told her I trust you to do what you think. Today was a very busy day with this magnificent creation that Lisah did for me. Haircut, dread extension creation (before) + fitting on the day with great advice. I don't regret my choice at all, thanks Lisah! The place is soothing and calm and everything is great. Recommend to maxreadmore
