Q. If I use a blow drier will that help set up and dry out the dreads? What about going to a hairdresser and asking to sit under the hood dryer? Will that help the dreads set in?
A. Yes, if you use a natural dreadlock wax like Knotty Boy, heat really helps melt the wax into the dreads and stick ’em all together. Try it with a blow-dryer, or sitting in the sun, and if you can sit in the hood dryer chair, that’s an even faster way of doing it. This isn’t completely necessary for good locks, though, just another thing you can try to speed up the process.
