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.
