"ALOHA MAUI! If you are hoping for quality locs, braids, extensions etc, I would definately recommend TAZ at All Island Braids. She hooked me up with some beautiful dreads back in October and I hate that it has taken me so long to write this review, but better late than never. Its super easy to book with her... you can meet pretty much anywhere on the island and she comes prepared and ready to roll every time. I have come to see her and her husband at the booths in Lahaina on Sundays and she has also come to my place to do some maintenance as well. She is not playing games when it comes to hair and it shows. Taz and her husband are both super chill, down-to-earth and accommodating. I have so much gratitude towards them and look forward to catching Taz for another session soon. Mahalo!

Our Ohana services (services performed for walk-ups and confirmed appointments at one of our pop-up shops) are discounted due to the dynamics of the environment. There may be instances where the stylist has to pause to process payments or assist other product purchasing customers which may distract from a service. So, pop-up customers save $30.00 per hour for specified services. Our V.I.P. service is a one-on one experience focused on you and you alone.
Dreadlocks Maintenance at Pop-up Booth
You'll want to have a minimum of 4 inches of hair growth from the scalp before I can get you started with natural locks or dreadlock extensions. When your hair is this short, it's a little more work for the first few months to get your dreadlocks going. However, as you watch them grow, it's nice to know that one day you will be swinging your Aloha Locks saying "LONG HAIR DON'T CARE"! But do plan for a 4 - 5 month transition for the locks to start forming.
Note: At home maintenance requires you not washing the hair for 1-2 weeks. You MUST use a dreadlock safe shampoo and then palm roll after when you do wash. Be sure to separate the dreads to prevent unwanted large sections from forming. Or we can do the maintenance

Preparing Your Hair for Dreadlocks
-Its very important to let your hair get to its natural clean residue free state about1 MONTH BEFORE LOCKING. If you haven't booked that far in advance then at least a week of following these instructions is necessary to assist in reducing any chemical residue from the hair and to get your hair in a nice clean and dry (not oily) state. This is the best state for locking.
-STOP the use of all products which contain chemical ingredients (such as standard shampoos, hair gel, spray, wax etc.) AND all hair products which are conditioning including conditioner leave-in conditioner and oils.
wash your hair with 100% natural (preferably organic ) herbal shampoo for ideally a whole month before your appointment. We sell some here if you would like to purchase from us.
-Make sure your last wash is about 3-5 days before your scheduled appointment depending on your hair type. See below
**If you have an OILY hair type please wash it the maximum number of days BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT before it gets oily. Eg: If your hair gets oily 4 days after washing, wash it 3 days before your appointment and then leave it.
**If you have a NORMAL TO DRY hair type then wash your hair about 5 days before your appointment then leave it.
**If you swim in the ocean in the NO WASHING time before your appointment , just rinse your hair with water (do not shampoo again)
DON'T WASH YOUR HAIR RIGHT BEFORE AN APPOINTMENT IT WILL BE TOO SQUEAKY CLEAN AND HARDER TO LOCK!! WITH GROWING HAND AND HOOK METHOD WE CAN LOCK in hair type in any state, however locking is easiest (and therefore cheapest) when your hair is in the natural, clean residue free state and dry not oily.
