To get straight to it, there are a few dos and don’ts for maintaining your dreadlocks. These simple tips are low on time and easy to do. Go on, read them for yourself and never regret getting your dread on!
Who doesn’t love a good massage? With dreadlocks on, it’s very important to gently massage your scalp for atleast 5 minutes every night. This will not only keep your scalp stimulated but also promote hair growth. Need we also mention how thoroughly relaxing this can be? Take a look at the benefits of jojoba oil for afro hair.
2. No Re-Twisting
We love keeping those re-twists fresh, but too much re-twisting can cause hair breakage and eventually thinning of your hair at the root. Ain’t nobody got time for that! So instead, try out new hairstyles in between re-twists and fall in love with your dreads all over again.
3. The Night Wrap
Part of maintaining your dreadlocks is investing in a silk scarf to wrap around your hair at night. Say goodbye to breakage and keep your hair from getting all tangled up. You can thank us later! Check out these cool ways to tie a head scarf.
4. Patience Is key
Locking can be a time-consuming process, so stay calm. Hair locks faster for some people and can take forever for the others. Locking takes especially long for thicker hair, so nourish and care for your hair to make it stay strong and grow long.
5. Keep Moisturizing
Be careful about the products you use on your dreadlocks. Extremely heavy hair products will create excess build up on the scalp. So choose lighter natural oils and jelly products like the ProfectiV Mega Growth Daily Leave-In Strenghtener for ‘em locks.
