Well I have bleached my dreads and dyed them a few times and they seem to be fine but also about once or twice a week I was with dollylocks shampoo
Thats up to you man, personally i didnt wash mine for a week or so after i first started them possibly a lil longer just to insure they were holding.. but yeah whenever you feel comfortable washing them, getting them wet isnt too bad tho i tried to avoid it as much as possible just to be on the safe side
Ok quick question, so my dreads are almost a year old and i washed them the other day (BS/ACV) and noticed when i got out of the shower that a few of my dreads have wax in them... Mind you i put it in there when i first started them because i was i impatient and didnt know what i know now about wax and i really wanna get it out! So my question is Wax Be Gone should get the wax outta there right? even tho they are almost a year old and I AM NOT TRYING TO TAKE THEM OUT!! OR CUT THEM!!
ok all very good questions and concerns, first off im assuming that you didnt use wax, and basically their going to be loose, when you first start them, the best thing to do is forget you have hair..just wash and separate them. and i know it seems like "oh no there going to fall out, or my dreads are gonna suck" but trust me they will get better and when you first start them they do suck and get on your nerves..but best advice for you is to just let them do there thing
