Dreadlocks are matted hair.
Your hair should be at least three inches long to start dreadlocks.
Your hair will grow when you have dreadlocks, ” it will seem like your hair is growing slower, but it isn’t. The reason it seems like your hair is growing slower is because the hair is growing zig zag and dreadlocking.
You do not have to shave your head when you want to t o out the dreadlocks you don’t even have to cut your hair. Here are the ways to take dreadlocks out:
- You can cut or shave your head if you don’t care about your hair, this is the fastest way to remove the dreadlocks.
- Cut the deadlocks until they are about 3 inches long and then soak the rest of the dreadlocks in Dread Removal Cream and comb them out. This will leave you with about 4 or 5 inches of hair.
- You love your hair and want to keep it. Just soak the dreadlocks in Dread Removal Cream and comb them out, it may take a couple hours but you will get to keep your hair. Don’t worry if you lose a lot of hair while you are combing
the dreadlocks out, this is hair that would have fallen out in the day-to-day hair removal cycle. The only reason you still have it is because you had dreadlocks and dreadlocks keep the hair all knotted together.
You can dreadlock your hair yourself using the backcombing, twist & rip, twist & pin, twisting, brush rubbing, dread braiding, and neglect methods.
Natural dreadlocks are dreadlocks made without the use of harsh chemicals.
Twist and Rip
Twist and Pin
The dreads will look like dreadlocks after you make them if you use the backcombing, twist and rip, twist and pin, twisting, or brush rubbing method. It will take about 3-6 months for the dreads to lock up completely with these methods. The dreads will look like dreads in about a year with the dread braiding and neglect method, and they will lock up at about the same time.
Yes, you can wash your dreadlocks. You should wash your dreadlocks at least once a week, but most people wash every three days. Make sure you use a residue free shampoo when you wash your dreads, it’s the most important product you can use on your dreads. I recommend DreadHead residue free shampoo.
You should get in the habit of washing your dreadlocks every three days, your dreadlocks will lock up fast and they will look and smell good at the same time. As long as you wash your dreads once a week you should be fine.
No, actually you should wash your hair with residue free shampoo right before you make the dreadlocks and let you hair air dry.
Yes, you need to use a shampoo that leaves no residues behind in your hair and removes residues that are in your hair. The reason using this kind of shampoo is so important when you have dreadlocks is because dreadlocks like to hold stuff. When you have normal hair the residues are free to fall out and fall out while you are brushing your hair, but when you have dreadlocks you don’t brush your hair, and the hair isn’t free to let the residues fall out. So the residues begin to build up, and after a while they can cause the dreadlocks to mold. The residues also lubricate the hair, so the knots can’t tighten as much as they could if there were no residues there. I recommend DreadHead residue free shampoo.
Wax is great for dreadlocks, it helps moisturize them while holding together while they are new, and it is a great conditioner for older dreadlocks. I recommend DreadHead Wax.
Aloe is a good dread conditioner, but only use it as a dread conditioner, it can’t hold new knots together at all.
