Gazzy Garcia, also known as Lil Pump, is an American rapper and songwriter who has very colourful dreadlocks. The method Lil Pump used to lock his hair looks like interlocking combined with crocheting.
Interlocking is a locking and maintenance technique where the end of the loc is pulled to the scalp. This is excellent for those who hair unravel easily.
When I examine his dreadlocks further, I notice sometimes his locs appeared thick and other times thin. This can only mean he occasionally uses human hair dreadlocks extensions.
Lil Pump always has these clean line-ups and tapered hairlines, sometimes his new growth is visible, while other times you’ll notice that he recently interlocked his hair, You can also tell he uses locking gel by the build-up of both the gel and dyes in his dreadlocks.
Bleaching And Dyes Damaged Lil pump Dreads
Lil pump dreadlocks are the perfect example of the dangers of bleaching dreads. According to Bustle, bleach attacks your hair pigment so it can become lighter. It strips your hair of its natural oils and breaks down the fatty acids from your hair shaft, in turn, leading to brittle hair.
Combine with the dyes which again attacks your hair pigment, lifting the colour and replacing it with the dye pigment. The longer the dye stays in your hair, the more damage it does. Similarly, these colours remain in your locs and in time, weakens your dreads.
Which brings me back to Lil Pump dreads- his hair is thinning, and after dyeing, I can see the build-up of the colours and it severely damages his hair. I will admit, I love his pink and blonde look that was the first time I actually paid attention to his locs. Then after his teal dye, his hair changed.
What I Have Learnt About Lil Pump Dreadlocks
Lil Pump constantly styles his hair in dreads cornrows and decorate them with dreads jewellery which I love because it adds character to your hair. He regularly interlocks and uses gel to maintain his hair and changes his hair colour often.
However, this doesn’t mean you can’t dye your dreads to those iconic colours. Visit a certified loctician to bleach your hair. Also, stick with the pink and blonde, don’t dye your dreads thirty times for the year. Lastly, he wears dreadlocks extensions to make his dreads appear thicker. If you want to use dreadlocks extensions, the Locsanity is made with 100% human hair and is very easy to install.
