InventHelp Inventor Develops New Dreadlock/Wick Hairstyling Tool (PLB-252)

PITTSBURGH, May 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — “I wanted to create a more effective and timesaving method of twisting or locking hair for dreadlocks/wicks,” said an inventor, from Philadelphia, Pa., “so I invented the INSTANT WICK CROCHET. My design increases control and flexibility, and it could provide more attractive and professional results.”

The patent-pending invention provides an easier means of interlocking hair for dreadlocks/wicks. In doing so, it offers an alternative to traditional dreadlock tools such as crochet needles. As a result, it saves time and effort, and it helps prevent snags or too much tension. The invention features an efficient design that is easy to use so it is ideal for consumers, beauty salons and barbershops. Additionally, it is producible in design variations.

The original design was submitted to the Philadelphia sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
