rubbing dreadlocks clockwise or counterclockwise rubbing

rubbing dreadlocks clockwise or counterclockwise

when talking about rubbing dreadlocks many sites say they need to be rubbed in only 1 direction. lets examine the logic behind this illogical myth.

hair swirl direction

hair does grow from the scalp in a swirl around the crown

in most this is a clockwise swirl as seen above, but like left handedness a percentage of people have hair that swirls in the opposite direction.

when is a swirl not a swirl?-placing a flat palm directly on the crown the hair under the palm indeed does swirl in 1 direction only, now move that palm to the side of the head, and any clockwise movement rubs nearly 1/2 the hair against the grain., no longer are you rubbing a swirl, but a curve, 1/2 with the grain, 1/2 against.

to rub or not to rub

rubbing to create knots also creates friction and damage. rubbing with a towel to dry hair creates knots that are the beginnings of dreads. more rubbing means more damage over time, so once you have some knots started, no more need to rub, ever.
