  3. You dont have to buy any bs products or any specialist techniques to get dreads.

    Wax is for dirty people who only want nice looking dreads not healthy clean hair. Wax is a con.

    The best shampoo’s are Bicarbonate of soda and water. Then Apple cider vinegar rinse after with Tea tree oil and other essential oils like rosemary and peppermint.

  4. dread rott only happens when you use soap to wash your hair that leaves behind residu that atracts mildew…wax does nothing bad to your locks if you dont over wax. if you want to use it go ahead and if you dont thats fine…who really gives a crap

  5. well you know my locks are made with the comb and crochetted and believe me its much natural without wax and you dont have to care them too much like waxing them every day
    beside that you know if you wax yor dreads it can grow mildew inside them or you can have scalp problems

  6. I’m very dissapointed with you all on a dredlock website don’t you know that dredlocks occur naturally when you don’t brush your hair it just takes a while.Thats how mine were made and that was over 13 years ago.

    • If you are ok with not brushing your hair until it mats into random shaped locks, that is up to you. I’ll go with this method … haha I have a job!

      Pro’s; If you’re a lazy bastard you don’t have to do anything but wash it.
      Cons; It looks like shit and 90% of the time you’ll want to hack it off later.
