Creation of Natural Dreadlocks

Dreads Expert, hairdresser goldsmith of the creation of premium natural dreadlocks, unveils his world to you. You will find on this site the answers to all your questions about dreads. Allow me, first of all, to introduce myself in a few lines.

Who am I?

My name is Lisah Sandström, creator of natural locks, founder of Dreads Expert and the website

I live in Saint Raphael (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, a small town in Laplandlocated in the north of Sweden. I am trilingual Swedish, French and English.

I have a dual education. I have a bachelor's degree in tourism (Uppsala University) and a Master Hairdresser's Diploma (Björn Axén Institute of Stockholm).


My business? The creation of natural dreadlocks

I am more exactly a hairdresser specializing in natural dreads. I create, therefore, only authentic locks as well as extensions made of real hair.

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

I realize dreadlocks for men, women, teenagers and children. Expert in the creation of natural dreads for afro hair, fine hair and sparseyour dream of wearing locks becomes, then, a reality.

My know-how? The creation of natural crochet dreads

To create and shape dreads, I only use crochet. This object was originally used to create lace. It is, in my opinion, the ideal tool to design beautiful locks and to maintain them well.

My experience and the training courses I have followed have allowed me to develop my own technique for creating natural crochet dreadlocks. I create, thus, your dreads with softness and without pain.

My artistic fibre and the agility of my hands allow me to sublimate your locks.


My work philosophy? Excellence

I am positioning myself in the premium segment of natural dread creation. Indeed, I aim for excellence in my art.

I am passionate about the beauty of natural dreads and how to sublimate them. Enhancing skin, eyes, complexion, wrinkles, without ever letting the locks take over, these are my daily challenges.

Every dreadlocks project requires time and commitment. I meticulously analyze faces, hair type and colors to create natural dreads that reflect the soul of each individual.

The dreadlocks extensions that I apply are made by myself with great care and attention to detail. The hair that I use to make them is of very high quality.

My goal is twofold: to create high quality locks that look great and to make my clients proud to wear them.
