Three Online Hot Spots for People with Dreads

online dread hubs

In the age of incredible technology, there are tons of spots online that offer great advice, tips, and inspiration for people with dreadlocks. This is one of the best and most clear forms of connectivity to people all over the globe to share their ideas and experiences that benefit you and anyone you know with dreadlocks too.


Reddit has become more and more popular and is the self-proclaimed “front page of the internet.” While it’s popularity has grown, maybe one of the best parts about Reddit is that you can be as specific as you want with what you’re looking for.

In your case, if you type ‘dreadlocks’ into the search bar, a subreddit called Dreddit exists with nearly ten thousand subscribers and readers. They pride themselves on being an open community where people can post questions, stories, transformations, tips and trick, and anything else you could think of related to dreadlocks.

Facebook Groups

Another huge outlet for small communities around the globe is through Facebook groups. Private or open groups all have huge numbers of people with dreadlocks that are sharing everything under the sun about their dreads and what it’s like to live with them.

Facebook groups like this one are quite a bit more active than Reddit forums. Facebook is basically a constant live chat through a Facebook feed on topics that you want. Plus, with Facebook, it’s easy to go from topic to topic either asking questions or sharing some advice on your own dreadlock journey. See more groups like this here.


The final technological hot spot online is YouTube. While this isn’t as open in communication terms as either Facebook or Reddit, there’s so much content on YouTube that will blow your time. First timers getting dreads in videos, pros walking through the entire process, and so many helpful videos on dreadlock maintenance are in the thousands to choose from.

YouTube is a great outlet for those of you who want to build some type of brand with your dreadlocks and be known as an educator and advocate for dreadlocks that are well-kept and look great. You could turn this into many different things from personal vlogs, how-to videos, or interviews with other people who have dreads.

The technology has made the read limitless. It’s been an opening into a black hole of information that you will have to sift through, but just know that the good quality content is there and it’s there in large numbers. People are sharing their stories, their advice, and their experiences with dreadlocks online for free and it’s the perfect free education for you no matter where you’re at in your own personal dreadlock journey.
