Jay Z Dreads- A Look Into His Freeform Locs

Spread the love

Jay Z is one of the biggest rappers in the game. I love to see black celebs embracing the freeform dreads culture. What makes Jay Z dreads so interesting? Is it instantly make him look younger, unique, and suits him?
Like J Cole, Jay Z dreads are freeform, and he does little to no maintenance to achieve his dreadlocks.

Now, just by looking at his hair, you can tell his hair type is 4B. Similarly, freeform dreads will always have a unique style to them.

He frequently wears headbands, and this pushes his dreads upwards, adding to the character of his locs. You can also see congos developing in his dreadlocks, which always add a cool factor to every dreads style.

How His Dreads Are Maintained

As I mention above, Jay Z dreads are freeform, so he does little to manipulation. His dreadlocks are growing and look healthy, so he regularly moisturizes his dreads.

The headbands encourage his locs to face upwards. I’m not sure if the headband is used to push his locs upwards deliberately or for style. Also, he is in an awkward stage in his dreads journey as you can see some of his dreads are lying down while others are pointing upwards.


Here’s a look into Jay Z dreads. We hope to see him with long dreads in the future.

Jay Z Dreadlocks Breakdown:

  • Freeform.
  • 4b hair type.
  • Probably moisturize with Coconut oil and Rosewater.
  • The technique for dreading- Leave it to dread on its own or dreads sponge.
