Does getting your hair wet everyday slow down neglect dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

haha you are funny dude, it's ok it's just one of the dreads I tested on. No need to do any de-waxing.

Does getting your hair wet everyday slow down neglect dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

I think a daily rinse actually helps them lock up faster for many people, I have a feeling that getting them wet (rinsing) and getting them dry really fast with sun drying really helps them lock up. My hair is so smooth that no matter what I do the dreads are always frizzy, it will take a really long time for all the frizzy hairs sticking out of my dreads to break and fall off, specially due to the fact that I keep my hair really healthy with daily rinsing and moisturizing. I have 45 dreads on my head and I did 2 tests on 2 of them, on one I put dread wax, it didn't help at all with the frizzy hairs and that dread soaks up a shitload of water and takes longer to dry after rinsing. On another dread I tried burning all the frizzyness with a lighter, after 1 week it became frizzy again. So I just have to live with frizzy dreads for now :)

Yes I rinse daily in the shower and also use grape seed oil to moisturize when my hair gets dry.

dreadlocks and hobbies


dready interests

I guess I would say my #1 hobby is journal writing, I have piles of notebooks with daily entries and I start most of my days with a cup of coffee and a pen and open notebook in front of me, I write down my thoughts and feelings and get into a positive meditative state with the universe and a higher power of my understanding. I also enjoy zen style meditation where I try to be in a meditative state for as long as I can no matter what I happen to be doing throughout the day. My other hobbies are regular Babylonian things I guess, just watching netflix and chilling. I always enjoy black coffee, we have really good black coffee in Israel!

Sea salt spray


Dread Products

Sea Salt Spray probably helps things lock because the salt sucks up moisture, making your hair extra dry, in the short term it will help because extra dry, non oily hair will lock up faster because it will be less slippery and more rigid, but on the other hand extra dry hair will become unhealthy, and easier to break and you don't want your dreads breaking apart / breaking off. So I would say that it could help with the locking up for freeform / neglect but just be aware that if your hairs start to look unhealthy / breaking, you might need to oil your hair or rinse more often to keep the hair healthy and not breaking. Exrtra dry hair and scalp will also cause more itchyness and dandruff in some people. 

A better and healthier way to get your hair to be more dry and rigid and lock up faster is actually by rinsing every day in the shower with warm water for a few minutes, just letting the water clean your hair. This will rinse out most of the natural oils on your scalp and hair on a daily basis, making the hair lock up faster because it is dryer and less greasy and at the same time your hair and scalp will be soaking in moisture from the rinsing on a daily basis and stay healthy. Also your dreads will never get stinky and your scalp won't have dandruff / itchyness.

Retwisting Locs What They Don't Tell You


Dread Maintenance

I agree, thanks so much for writing this post for us brother you rock!

Keeping dread lock roots too tight will make it hard to sleep at night because of the pain an will cause baldness. Also, over tightening will always leave lots of scalp visible, which is undesired in my opinion. If you want to keep your dreads super tidy because you like the tidy look better, you can do so without tightening or twisting the roots, you can get them really tidy all the way up to the root, and leave an inch or half an inch of normal hair growth, and they will not only look super tidy, but also the scalp wont be visible and you won't get traction alopecia baldness. I like my dreads super neat and tidy and healthy looking but also think they look a lot better with at least half and inch or more of regular growth at the root.

How do you wash freeform/neglect dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

AquaGuy:

When I wash my hair, I rub my hair all over and my scalp (like everyone does) , but now that I have started neglect-freeforming dreadlocks I don’t know whether there’s a better way to wash them to avoid unknotting any knots that may have formed. 

My hair is very curly, 3C hair, so can knot up very quickly when left to its own devices, but can also equally as quickly unknot itself when having a shower.

Also, I have another question - is itchy hair normal when neglect-freeforming dreadlocks? I’ve never had itchy hair in 23 years, and now that I have started to neglect-freeform dreadlocks my hair is insanely itchy even though I am washing my hair as frequently as I have done for years.

Thanks. Peace.

Try rubbing some grape seed oil on your scalp every morning, it might help with the itching, like it did for me.
