deep clean dry dreadlocks Jan 13, 2017

I have here a question from Liz Marda on Instagram that asked me,

“How old should your dreadlocks be the first time you deep clean them?

And do you have any good advice on how to do that and how to dry them after washing?”

Well, a lot of dreadheads are really into deep cleaning their dreadlocks. It’s a really good thing if you are scared that there’s a lot of dust and scary things are stuck inside of your dreadlocks. To get a really good recipe on how to deep clean your dreadlocks, you should just Google around and see different types of recipes on how different people have made their deep cleans. If you want to buy a kit that is already made; you can buy them from Dollylocks has a kit that is finished with a shampoo and some powder that you can use.

You can find the Dollylocks deep clean kits in our shop here:

How to dry dreadlocks in a cold climate

dry dreadlocks Jan 10, 2017

Today, I’m going to answer you a question that I got from Instagram from Alfonso: “It’s fall wintertime and it’s getting pretty cold out. What’s the best thing to do to keep my dreads clean and dry up quickly?”

Well, when it’s winter out if you live in a really cold climate like here in Sweden, you really have to think about when you are washing your dreadlocks. So, just take a moment and figure out what day of the week is the best time to wash your hair. If you know that you’re maybe always home on a Saturday, or a Sunday or maybe you’re off on a Monday, plan on washing your dreadlocks during that day and do it in the morning. If you know that you’re going to stay inside all day, that’s a really, really good plan. But what you can do is wash your hair, make sure that you really, really squeeze out the excess water that is still in the dreadlocks when you’re in the tub or in the shower, and just like...

How to remove lice from dreads

lice Jan 01, 2017

Today, I have from Young Tel a Tzu. “What happens if I get lice? What happens if they appear on my head?”

This is an issue that I get a lot of phone calls from people that have children in school. They kind of freak out when their children get lice and they get these notes home from school saying that there is lice in their kids’ grade. Well, one thing to prevent getting lice is to buy tea tree oil and put it in water.

Use it in a spray bottle and spray yourself and your kids with this and the lice do not like tea tree oil. So, that’s a really good thing you can do to prevent them when you get this note home.

If you get lice into your dreadlocks, you don’t have to cut them off. You should go to the closest pharmacy and talk them about what type of anti-lice shampoo they have. There are different shampoos, gels and different things that you can use to put on your hair to get the lice to die.

What you should look for is – I know over here in Sweden...

How can I prepare my hair for dreadlocks?

Uncategorized Dec 03, 2016


Todays question came from:

The lady luna: “Any advice on preparing for dreads, like preparing your scalp if you are prone to dandruff? I’ve also been trying to find the perfect shampoo. I know everyone’s hair reacts differently, but what’s your favorite?

Well, what you should start to do if you know that you are getting dreadlocks done is to stop using conditioner in your hair. It’s really important because it will be easier for the dreadlock maker or yourself if you’re making the dreadlocks yourself, to actually do the dreadlocks on your hair if it’s not too fine and silky. You’re probably going to feel that it’s a bit weird in the beginning, but don’t worry, you will get it after a while. Also, try to not wash your hair as often because when you have dreadlocks, we recommend that you only wash it – your hair about once a week. So, trying to get into the rhythm of washing your hair once a week is a really...
