There are several ways you can neatly store your dreads.

We have listed these here:

  • In your closet on a clothes hanger. There are clothes hangers that you can attach to each other by using rings, it will become a row of hangers hanging under each other, this will save you some space in your closet!

  • In a shoebox, easy and stackable!

  • In the original package or in the colored bag that you’ve received your dreads in.

  • In a plastic bag in your closet.

  • In a cloth bag.

  • Hang them on your own dread rack! At Dreadshop we have a beautiful rack on the wall on which we hang all our dreads! 

  • A jewelry hanger, there are special hangers with a lot of hooks on which you can hang your dreads! 

  • Hang them on your coat hanger, for example a wooden coat hanger with a lot of knobs or hooks close to each other ( if you’re creative you can do this yourself by using a wooden plank and attach knobs or hooks onto it, you can paint it and you’re done!)

How NOT to store your dreads!

  • Rolled up like a ball, then they will tangle up and they will become frizzy

  • Do NOT put them in the dryer, (more about this at our info page)

  • Do NOT store them unprotected (so always store them inside of something)

  • Do NOT store them on top of your closet.

  • If you have pets store them in a place that your pet can’t reach

  • Do NOT store them in a humid room (if you store them in a non humid room you will prevent your dreads from odors and deforming)
