Tips for Dreadlocks Care and Maintenance

    I have had dreadlocks for 8 years now and I just want to clear some things up. It is a common misconception that Rastafarian is a “style” but this is incorrect. Rastafarianism is a real recognized religion and should be respected thusly.. Having said that does not mean you must convert to have dreadlocks but you have to understand their history (which actually started in Asia) to completely and truly appreciate them. I have one other thing to say, and that is yes, upkeep of your dreads will make sure they are not messy but you must be able to endure the untamed nature of dreadlocks. Too frequent rolling for perfection and neatness will weaken your locks and possibly (strongly leaning towards possible) thin your hair especially along the edge (most especially the temples) so please take good care of them, and if possible go to a salon for your first twisting, it saves A LOT of pain later. 🙂

    This is the worst advice I have every heard for dreads. I’ve had them for 4 years. Here is my recipe for success with white hair. 1. section off and back-comb (rat) until you have puff balls. 2. Wash whenever the hell you want and however often you want, and you can use a towel (WTF?). 3. DO NOT USE WAX. It will never come out and it actually hinders the tangling (tightening) process. It’s like putting plaster on the outside. 4. In about 6 weeks, they should be pretty tight 5. Clean hair dreads better than greasy hair. 6. Loose bits can be pulled back in with a tiny crochet hook used for making lace. Like 1mm or smaller. 7. You can comb them out, too! Go to get_up_dread_up on livejournal group for positive energy and advice!

    Before I go further, i’m asking ONLY those who know how you can make them and take care of them, i’m not asking your opinion on them!

    How do you make your hair into dreadlocks and take care of them, keep them clean? What shampoos do you use?

    Does it matter what kind of hair you have to get them?

    Is it true that black widows and lice will get in them?! O_o
    Oh! And I am a girl! 🙂

    I’ve had dreadlocks since last April (2009).
    I LOVE my dreads and anyone who tells me to just let them grow out and get rid of them because they’re nasty and gross – you’ll get a thumbs down.
    I went to a salon and had them done professionally and she used the crochet method.
    Unfortunately, working 2 jobs and having her salon so far away, I have not gone back to have my roots redone. I’ve been looping them through the roots whenever my hair starts to grow out (about once a month or so).
    I’ve noticed that the bottom half of my dreads are dreading beautifully, but the top 2 inches that have grown out since I got them done look like braids and they’re not dreading!
    I’ve been trying to undo the roots, but since they’ve been looped for the last several months, I’m not having much luck getting them unlooped so I can properly dread them 🙁
    Is there a way of backcombing the looped part of my dreads to loosen some hairs and palm roll them around to cover up the roots?????

    Any help or tips is REALLY appreciated as I’m very very frustrated right now.

    Okay, so I’m thinking very strongly of getting dreadlocks, and I want them just like Sharon Bailey’s dreadlocks form the band ‘Amazulu’.
    If you don’t know who she is, she is the one in this video that bangs the pots on the house (not the lead singer, but the other Jamaican woman). This song is also SUUUUPER good, so you should take a look…

    Anyways, I want my dreads to look exactally like hers, but her hair looks extremely thick, and my hair is not thick, but not thin. Would the dreadlocks not look as full on me? Also, what size do they look like?

    I have two dreads in my hair. i will be putting more in when it gets longer. I plan on doin natural dreads. which simply means i will not use harsh chemicals or products to form them.

  7. Jeffery Carlson says:

    I’m going to a salon that does dreadlocks because I’m terrified of doing them myself. I want to get pretty thin/skinny ones. What are they going to do? What do I want to know about dreadlocks?
