Q. My hair is thick as a beast…is this good or bad for starting dreads? What about Asian hair?
A. Thick hair is always good for dreads, makes them really nice and heavy but takes a bit more maintenance to lock up, just cuz it’s not as manageable as thin, fine hair.
Don’t let that scare you, though, especially if you’re locking up with a good wax like Knotty Boy – the wax helps all kinds hair types dread more easily and quickly by binding it all together and giving it a good head start.
