How to Keep Dreadlocks Clean?

If you need to find out how to keep dreadlocks clean, you can use the handy advice book that has plenty of tips on keeping your dreadlocks clean and your scalp healthy at Ehow online, ehow.com. First of all, there are a few things that you will need to keep in mind when trying to wash your dreadlocks, which can be done, but you will need to wait at least two weeks before shampooing a set of new dreadlocks. Below are some handy tips from Ehow:

1. Use a low lather shampoo, and make sure the water is either tepid or cool so as not to melt any wax that you may have in your locks.
2. Use products that tend to your scalp. Dreadlocks make you prone to dandruff.
3. Don't use conditioner. It will loosen your locks.
4. If you want to use a nylon, slip it over your head before you wash your hair, because this will keep the locks in place, so as not to loosen them during washing.
5. Shake your head after washing. Don't use a towel to blot after squeezing the excess water out of your dreadlocks, because towels may leave fuzz in your hair. Use a bedsheet to blot the locks.
6. Let your hair dry completely; then begin wax and twist process again.
