Even our wooden beads age gracefully when consistently exposed to water. This natural aging process adds character to the beads without compromising the health of your dreadlocks. 

One thing to be aware of though is to ensure the hair beneath your beads dries properly after your dreadlocks get wet to avoid any issues. Moving the beads around a little as your hair is drying will help the hair underneath to dry.

Choosing Mountain Dreads means choosing quality. We pride ourselves on being a trustworthy source for premium dreadlock beads. Our collection is wide-ranging, with an array of sizes, designs, and materials, ensuring there's something for everyone. From our vibrant gemstone beads to our intricately designed stainless steel ones, each bead is crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail.
