In search of the Perfect Dreadlock I traveled to China at the beginning of 2019, to create a Dreadlock for you that you have never worn before. I succeeded; meet Renate’s Locks of Love!
Renate’s Locks of Love is a Dreadlock of high quality, unrivaled good. Because of the material used, but also because of the method with which the dreadlock is made. The colors used are unique in their kind and all composed by me. No single dread consists of one hair color, but is a mix of different color shades to create a Dreadlock that is as natural as possible. The Ombré colors also consist of uniquely mixed color tones.
The loose ends provide the most natural look. Renate’s Locks of Love are lightweight, making the wearing comfort extra high. Despite that, they have a nice volume. These Dreads can be reused countless times and will last a lifetime. The unique length of 28 inches / 70 centimeters is a special addition to the Dreadshop range. And because I want to do my bit for a better environment, Renate's Locks of Love are delivered to you without plastic packaging.
I wanted to see up close how the Dreads are made and under what circumstances this happens, in order to get the Perfect Dreadlock that I had in mind. For that reason I was closely involved in the creation of Renate’s Locks of Love on location from A to Z. I dare say that you will not find Dreads like Renate's Locks of Love anywhere else. The question beforehand was; what requirements should a Perfect Dreadlock meet? You just read the answer.
- A pack/bundle Dreads contains 8DE or 12SE Dreads
- For a full head you need 4 bundles of Dreads
- The Dreads are 0.3-0.4 inch / 0.8-1 cm thick
- The difference between Single Ended and Double Ended Dreads
- Your hair must be at least 3 inch / 8 cm long
Dreads for your hair
We recommend using 2 bundles of Single Ended Dreads and two bundles of Double ended Dreads for a full head with these Renate’s Locks of Love. A combination of both types of Dreadlocks gives the perfect volume.
Do you want less volume or do you have thin hair? Choose three bundles of Single Ended Dreads and one bundle of Double Ended Dreads.
Do you want more volume? Choose three bundles of Double Ended Dreads and one bundle of Single Ended Dreads.

Delivery from €20
We have set a minimum order amount of €20 EUR (excluding shipping costs) on our website. This means that you can only complete the checkout after having a minimum €20 worth of products in the cart.
Why does Dreadshop do this?
Due to rising shipping and logistics costs, we are forced to apply this change.
We use comparatively big amounts of cardboard for small orders and also the same transport costs as for slightly larger orders. This has a major impact on the sustainability of our shipping process and does not fit into our vision. Dreadshop has always tried and will continue to ship as sustainably as possible.
