It's not worth palm rolling. If you don't do it a lot and often, you won't see any lasting progress. if you do it a lot, it destroys locks. I posted a vid on my page about what only 2 weeks of palm rolling will do to locks
jojobas the closest thing to natural skin and haitr oils aloe vera is also very good but you want food fgrade straight from the plant or sold as a drink/food additive from healthy food stores even if it sauys 100% pure read the ingredients there should be absolutely nothing but aloe in it if theres more then 1 ingredient dont use it
to add to what baba said african hair does require more moisy=turizu[ing so aloe or jojoba should be used to moidsturize only thats all any dreads need caucasian dreads should be dryer african lil moistened (to prevent it from getting briyttle)
no gels no waxes no anything that holds pr builds up a great dread soap is www.dreadlockshampoo.com they also have a wax remover and the only gel thatsd worthwhile too
if you have to rinse or i=use soap to get theproducts off your hands then its guaranteed to build up in dreads
Really, there shouldn't be any product going into your hair. All you should be using is a non residue shampoo and, if you want, some essential oils.
Most products leave residue in your hair which weighs them down and makes the uncomfortable when they are long. It can also lead to mold if you don't clarify your hair periodically.
Did you mean you do or don'e palm roll?
Welcome. But most things taught are damaging for dreadlocks. Shampoos should be residue-free. Not "clarifying", nor "anti-residue".
Methods taught are also usually damaging. The best, and healthiest way to grow locks is to leave them alone and wash 2-3 times a week with a dreadlock-friendly soap.
Wax and gels should NEVER be used. They destroy locks. Crocheting is the top worst thing that can be done to locks. It rips hairs into little pieces that weakens locks and shortens their longevity. Interlocking should never be used, either.
What methods do you use, and we can help you out
welcome what do u use now chances are its the worse thing you can use
what methods and products and maintenances when it comes to dreads almost all salons do it wrong and extremely harmfully
so i hope you can learn to do it the least harmful ways
