How to make a dreadlock using the Divine Hand & Hook Method

A 30 min tutorial on how to make a neat, tight dreadlock with a crochet hook. For personal use only!

This standalone professional HD video tutorial will teach you exactly how to create a stunning, neat, tight INSTANT DREAD (or instant loc) using the high quality Divine Hand & Hook Method (DH&H for short).

In the 30 minutes of professional tuition you'll learn exactly how to hold the hook correctly, how to set up your hair if you're making a dread extension, how to do correct backcombing to start with the perfect base, how to apply the DH&H method from root to tip, how to finish the dread & how to ensure not much length is lost.

It doesn't go into making a full head of dreads, however combined with the FREE eguide it will allow you to make a full head of dreads on YOURSELF (with some help from a friend).

The crochet method of dreadlocking originated in Thailand and Em taught herself how to do it after her first dreads were made in Thailand. She then personalised & innovated how to use the crochet to make low maintenance dreads that don't lose much length and perfected it over a 20 year period of dreadlocking ALL hair types around the world.

Essentially if your goal is to have neat, tight, well formed, all natural dreadlocks without the ongoing work then this is the best way to go.


  1. They're 100% natural. Uses only your hair & NO products
  2. They're instant locs - once they're made there is no more "work" on the dread to get it to lock up!
  3. No rolling, rubbing, twisting involved.
  4. Low maintenance 2-4 times a year is plenty.
  5. Environmentally friendly as there's no products needed & no chemicals used.


  • This tutorial is strictly for personal use only to create DIY dreads for YOURSELF.
  • It doesn't teach the in depth knowledge that is vital to offer a dread creation service to others.
  • If you wish to actually do dreads for more than one other person, the exchange of money or trade or start offering a dreadlocking service to others in general you'll need a LOT more skills.

Em has been working with dreadlocks since she began her first journey with them in Thailand in the year 2000. She taught herself how to do her own dread maintenance using a crochet hook and whatever she did worked so well that she began to get maintenance requests from other travellers who were amazed that no wax or rolling was involved. Because back then - nobody outside of Bangkok knew about the crochet method of doing instantly permanent dread work! It was all about backcomb, roll, twist, rip & roll or wax wax wax!

Em travelled the world over a continuous 6 year period creating & maintaining dreads for people in UK, Italy, Holland, Spain, Brasil and on her return to Australia in 2006 she discovered that there were no dreadlock services utilising the crochet hook method This was when she turned her travel hobby biz turned into a true part time business and Divine Dreadlocks was born.

Through word of mouth and rave reviews her reputation for high quality, friendly dreadlock work grew to an international standing which enabled her to be booked out 6 months in advance. This allowed her to stop working as a high school teacher (design & technology) & earn a decent wage in a 3 day working week, being at home as her babies were born and grew to school age.

Due to requests to teach others her skills and trade, she utilised her professional teaching knowledge to create a series of dreadlocking courses to help others learn how to do dreadlocks properly.

The Natural Dread Loctician Course series is aimed at empowering others to have all the skills and knowledge necessary to set up their own "lifestyle businesses" from home, studio or hair salon offering a high quality dreadlock service.

She wishes to empower as many people as possible to work in ways that allow them to:

1) Be their own boss,
2) Feel the freedom of choosing their own work days and hours,
3) Earn good money from home (up to $70/hr)
4) And gain financial stability or abundance with children.
