Don't Use Dawn Dish Detergent NEW
by: Loc'd 4LIFE

Please don't use Dawn dish detergent to shampoo your hair. Dawn's too harsh for hair. Use a residue free shampoo and be gentle.

I've started my own dreads (short) and I found that while washing frequently, they'd unravel so an Island friend with locs told me to not wash for a few weeks so that they can loc naturally and then wash them gently.

I started locking my hair about 4 months ago. I have very fine hair and since it hasn't actually locked yet I wash it about once every 3 weeks. However you have to take into account the fact that it's winter weather now so I'm not sweating in my head and I use a pomegranite moisturizer on my hair when I feel it needs it. I also use a mixture of jojoba oil and peppermint about twice a week. So far I'm getting good results and my hair looks healthy. My biggest aid is a good friend with blessed hands who touches me up every one to two weeks. I've found that you have to use common sense and do what's best for you and your hair type.

I've had my dreads for almost 4 years. They were short when I started due to me cutting my hair. Wash your dreads once a week and don't use a lots of chemicals. They started off an inch long now my hair is past my shoulders. Hopefully this helps.
