Dreadlock How To

Dreadlocks have both advantages and disadvantages.  One key advantage is that they are relatively low maintenance requiring regular cleansing but minimal styling time.  The disadvantage is that they are not considered appropriate for some professional career settings.  Also, once dreadlocks have been firmly established the only way to easily remove them is to cut them at the roots.

While it used to take a long time to grow and develop dreadlocks, today there are many ways to speed up the process including the following options:

Contrary to popular opinion dreadlocked hair, which is considered different then African American locked hair, requires consistent and regular washing.  Many people think dreadlocks are not washed.  This is incorrect and if dreadlocks aren't washed it can cause all sorts of issues with the scalp and the locked hair.

Dreadlocks don't necessary need to be washed with shampoo, but can be cleansed with a variety or formulations and methods.   In fact, many dreadlock experts will advise against utilizing any cleansing products or shampoos that may leave a residue.

To keep dreadlocks well formed the consistent use of dreadlock wax is recommended.  The best wax products for dreadlocks do not contain petroleum.
