I would recommend not using any conditioners before you have your hair dreaded, and giving it a wash the day before the appointment. You could wash it in a natural soap (or if you want to be really thorough, a natural washing up liquid) when you do this as this cleans off anything like oil or conditioners that might be coating the hair that may prevent it from dreading up nicely..

Also try to plan ahead if you regularly dye your hair. I recommend not doing too much to disturb new locks, so it’s a good idea to do any dyeing before your appointment.
