Your hair must be completely dry. Please wash them a day before your apointment!
Make sure, you get a good night of sleep before long apoinments!
Bring a hat, a scarf or some other form of headware, since freshly made dreads tend to stick out for a few days!
For longer appointments bring some snacks and entertainment with you!

Washing

The best foundation for dreadlocks is dry and damaged/rough hair. To optimize your hair before your appointment, you should consider the following instructions:
Stop using shampoo and other products that contain conditioner or silicone.
Use shower gel, baby shampoo and rhassoul.
Use curd soap. Foam up the soap in your hands not directly on your dreadlocks! Try to focus on the dreads, curd soap is not very friendly to your skin!
Siliceous earth can be used as a peeling for your hair. Mix it with a litle bit of water and let it stay on your hair for 15-20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly!
