crochet to natural
When your hair is loose and un-dreaded it leaves your scalp open to dirt and debris that's flying around in the air, it hits your scalp and clogs the pours, so your scalp produces more oil to attempt to push the gunk out and clear the pours.With dreaded hair your scalp is less open to that pesky debris so you produce less oil, meaning you literally don't have to wash as often.In addition, the cause of smelly dreads is mold, and mold can only start to grow if your hair is wet and not allowed to fully dry.So with washings, just wash when your hair is dirty. Whether that's once a month, 3 times a year, or once a week. And so long as you make sure they dry completely then you shouldn't have any odor problems.
