Creation and maintenance of premium natural dreadlocks

Dreads Expert, a goldsmith in the creation and maintenance of premium natural dreadlocks, unveils its world to you. On this site you will find the answers to all your questions about dreads. First, let me 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 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 have a hairdressing diploma as well as a master's degree in the creation and application of natural dreadlocks.

What do I do? The creation and maintenance of natural dreadlocks

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, teenagers and children. I am an expert in creating natural dreads for afro, fine and thinning hair, so your dream of wearing locks becomes a reality.

Why natural dreadlocks?

My passion for dreads came after discovering Lenny Kravitz on MTV. His locks fascinated me. I had only one obsession: to wear them! It was done when I was 12 years old.
In 2001, I created, as an amateur, my first dreadlocks. In order to improve my skills, I took courses in hair salons that are experts in natural dreads. This way, I was able to make beautiful natural locks for my friends.
In 2006, I became a hairdresser specialized in natural locks. I have worked in Sweden and the Netherlands.

My expertise? The creation and maintenance of natural crochet dreadlocks

To create dreads, I only use the hook. This object was originally used to create lace. It is the ideal tool to create beautiful locks and to maintain them well.
My experience and the training I have followed have enabled me to develop my own technique for creating and maintaining premium natural dreadlocks. I create your dreads gently and painlessly.
My artistic flair allows me to enhance your locks.

My work philosophy? Excellence

I position myself in the premium segment of natural dreads creation. Indeed, I aim for excellence in my art.
I am passionate about the beauty of natural dreads and the ways to enhance them. To highlight faces, eyes and wrinkles, without ever letting the locks take over, these are my daily challenges.
Each dreadlock creation requires time and commitment. I carefully analyse faces, hair types and colours 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 natural dreadlocks is located at 205, rue Isaac Newton, 83700 Saint Raphaël (Var).
Several parking lots are nearby.
I travel mainly for people with reduced mobility, pregnant women and/or women who have just given birth.
I receive only by appointment.

I found "Dreads expert" on the net, the best rated site for natural dreads extensions. So I made an appointment to talk about my project with Lisah, a beautiful Swedish woman with a very nice accent, who knows what she's talking about. Despite my already eccentric look, I needed to be reassured to pass the cape, and especially, that dreads are not a constraint!!!!Yesterday was the date to move to the realization of my project.I spent the day with Lisah, who loves "his passion", create dreads. This woman lives what she does, takes a lot of pleasure in seeing the hairstyle evolve. I spent the day with Lisah, who loves "her passion", creating dreads, and takes great pleasure in seeing the hair evolve... A work of high fashion, in the joy and relaxation... She takes care of her customers... Here I am with beautiful and feminine dreads!

Lisah is an expert who takes your project with enthusiasm, seriousness and great professional awareness... My project was specific and with a triple objective: on the one hand to get rid of a salt and pepper root effect with colored lengths, on the other hand to realize a dream of locks that I had for at least 25 years, as well as to give a boost to my transition to a more mature and affirmed age. Lisah was a great listener and a great teacher, not only in her professional and artistic competence but also in her patience and her will to give a 100% successful result (a whole day of dreading an extremely full head of hair.) A huge thank you Lisah, for this wonderful work, this beautiful day spent together. See you soon for the interview more

Since I was a little girl I dreamed of having nice dreads, but life prevented me from doing so for years. In. .. early 2022 I plan to quit my job and move 600 kilometers away. A change of life, surrounded by many trials. I then decided to launch myself into the dreadloks adventure, for this new book, this new adventure. I started by looking in Dordogne, where I was based to see if extensions were feasible, then in the south, towards my new place of life. I came across a strange site and while browsing other sites I came across Lisah's site. I realized that someone from Dordogne had stolen her photos to sell her own services. After looking at Lisah's site, I decided to go for it. And I have no regrets. I now have beautiful dreadloks extensions that I hope to keep as long as possible, Lisah is sweet and very pleasant, we talked, 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, I wanted my hair to be classy and bohemian to reflect my true personality. With my greying hair that frizzes out, I hadn't been able to do my hair for months. Plus I couldn't grow my hair out, it gets damaged too quickly. I have a rather nice face but I had lost confidence in my image. Thanks to Lisah, what a transformation! I can change my hair 10 times a day if I feel like it, it holds itself! I've never had so many compliments on my appearance. And yet I'm a consultant, so far from being a disadvantage, dreads affirm my style and my artistic side. And my husband's look? Rrrrrrrrr... Lisah you are sweet, empathetic, caring and above all really talented. If I had to do it again? I'd rather do it a thousand times than once. Thank you for everything. 😘plus

I did a dreadlocks maintenance service in her very nice salon, I was. .. welcomed like I've never been welcomed in a dread hairdresser's, Lisah knows how to make you feel at ease ☕🍫🤗 I thought my dreads were rather well maintained, and well I saw how wrong I was, I've never seen them in such a good shape!Between personalized advice, know-how, techniques, speed and efficiency, Lisah is, as her shop indicates, an expert in the field, quite simply. 💫I'm used to such expert Afro hairdressers, but there's a huge difference with Lisah.She knows exactly what you need from the nature of your hair, whether it is for the maintenance as the products to use.I came out all new with a real conduct to hold to have the most beautiful locs ✨ Beautiful conversations accompany the service, it is a very pleasant moment, perfect from beginning to end 😍 See you soon Lisah 😊more

I discovered Lisah more than 2 and a half years ago on the networks, because I was looking for someone to create dreads,... unfortunately I couldn't afford her services for my creation at thetime. I've been following her regularly since then, and I had the honour (yes really, I was very moved ☺️) to go under her hook and her golden hands yesterday, and she's really an extraordinary person, a warm welcome, a fast and incredible service! I've had the opportunity to do root retapes at other people's houses, much longer and much less well. Her Swedish touch and her gift really make her a person I would recommend, she is full of good advice, she shares what she knows, recommends great products. What more can I say, go for it! 👌✨✨✨✨✨ ❤️plus

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 maxplus

Thank you very much again! And see you soon for the interview!
