How and When did Tyreek Hill Dreads Start?

Tyreek Hill Dreads journey

How: He first began his dreads with the Semi Freeform Method and then had them maintained at the root, we know this for a fact as he began to get styles done such as 2 strand twists. 

The semi freeform methods essentially is twisting hair either using a towel, sponge or other method which is afterwards left to form by itself.

When: Tyreek’s 1st set of locs were started in 2016 after being drafted to the Miami Dolphins. He has since cut them and reattached, more on this later.

2016 – 2019 (Starter Dreads)

The year is 2016, its NFL Draft time, round 5 and the sports world is introduced to Tyreek in a relatively short afro in which he will begin to start his dreads.

The most interesting thing is that his dreadlock journey runs in conjunction with the start of his football career, rookie player and starter dreads which is being recorded in real time.

Towards late 2017 and onwards we would begin to see the athlete style his hair in various different ways such as his 2 strand twists, barrel twists and twist outs.

2019 – 2022 (Dreads Cut and Dyed)

After 3 years of his loc journey Tyreek decided it was time for a change and that came about by having his hair shaved.

In addition to this he would have the ends of his hair dyed blonde to further stand out.

Blonde hair tends to be a style which has gained popularity amongst black men, for example Lil Durk Dreads continues to be dyed this colour which has influenced his musical peers and athletes.

Disclaimer: Applying any sort of chemical to your hair is a very risky job as this can lead to breakage or thinning if not done correctly, therefore we always recommend you use a professional.

2022 – Present (Reattachment)

Mid 2022 we saw him reattach his dreads for personal reasons and we can see them much thicker.

Dreads reattachment is also a popular option for those not wanting to go through the journey and process.

After he cut his locs he kept them and decided it was time to have them reinstalled by a professional.

Most people on the internet call these “fake dreads” however we don’t class them as such since they came from his scalp, that’s his hair being reattached.

Fetty Waps Dreads for example we would agree and call them fake since the hair is currently not his own.

We will continue to update our article to reflect any changes Tyreek makes to his hair in real time!

Do your research if you want similar Dreads!

Doing your research allows you to select your favourite parting system, size and best methods to maintain your hair.

As our editorial has demonstrated Tyreek started with traditional pencil size locs and today they are thicker having been merged together and reattached.

Determine the size and parting system you would like then to visit your local loctician.

Talk to a loctician and get a Consultation!

Talking to a loctician is our best advise! They are the professionals who live and breathe hair.

During the consultations locitians will be able to have a closer look at your hair type, discuss the starting process and hair products to use.

(Should you decide you want locks take it from us, less is more when it comes to product, no need to go overboard)

Ensure you save the images of your desired style to your loctician and explain what you’re looking for.
