|Stylish dredlocks, healthy and clean!|
Who wants to constantly smell like they need to be hosed down. Keep your locs fresh by applying essential oils like lavender, cedarwood and cornmint.
These essential oils have natural antibacterial properties to keep your scalp and hair smelling fresh.I see clients daily and some of them have really bad diets, you can smell what a person eats just by smelling there hair!
When you shampoo(especially if you have large loc) Heat the shampoo first to thin it out, then pour it into the hair. Heating allows the shampoo to penetrate into the loc instead of sitting on top of the locs and only going in just beneath the surface. Liquifying the shampoo will ensure that it reaches the dredlock's core to lift out product build up.
Any shampoo will work for this, even the cheap ones. If you really have build up beyond the scope of holistic methods then u may need to use dish washing liquid to pull the wax out of your hair. Dawn degreaser works well. Not very glam, but then again, hair that smells like horse poo isn't either!
