If I get dreadlocks and I don't like them will I have to shave my hair?
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
fastest way to remove the dreadlocks.
2. Cut the deadlocks until they are about 3 inches long and then soak
the rest of
the dreadlocks in VO5 conditioner and comb them out.
This will leave you
with about 4 or 5 inches of hair.
3. You love your hair and want to keep it. Just soak the dreadlocks in
conditioner 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.

How long until the dreadlocks look like dreadlocks?
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.
I wash my dreadlocks?
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.
often should I wash my dreadlocks?
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.
I have to stop washing my hair for a long time before I make dreadlocks?
No, actually you should wash your hair with residue free shampoo right before you make the dreadlocks
and let you hair air dry.
Do I have to use a different shampoo when I have
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.
Is wax good for dreadlocks?
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.
Is Aloe good for dreadlocks?
Aloe is a good dread conditioner, but only use it
as a dread conditioner, it can't hold new knots together at all.
