Dreadson MaLock: In 2 weeks, I will have had free form dreadlocks for 4 years, but a month ago, in a hurry I did not fully dry my hair and have clearly developed mold. I know this because the smell every time they are wet. However, I have used Rot Knot from dreadlockshampoo (still use it) and it hasnt gotten rid of the mold. I even emailed Vicki, to see if I was using it wrong, and per her instructions, it still isnt working. I really dont want to comb out or cut out 4 years of my journey. I'm honestly saddened by this experience and would appreciate any help or alternatives. Boiling, white vinegar, using the rest of the rot knot bottle at once, any of these things I am willing to try and more. I could really use any wise or experienced advice. Thank you for reading this.
heres what I do keeping in mind my hairs extremely long I use an entire bottle at once, after making sure the hairs good and wet, squeezing it in deep into all the dreads, especialy the thick ones.. I wait at least 10 minutes..longer if needed all the while still squeezing it in deep I make sure ty are saturated to the core
then rinse well (even a full bottle rinses out pretty easily) then wash with the shampoo and make sure I dry extra thouroughly..if I can I blow dry some then go sit in the sun ,,if I cant I blow dry all day and into the night (not constant I blow several minutes at a time concentrating on dampest parts always rearranging the dreads to allow air to get to the damper ones) I often hang em over a rack like you use for clothes to keep them spread out
this is a great way to spread out extra long dreads for drying
