How (often) do I wash my Dreadlocks?Marjolein
Wash your scalp/dreads once a week or every other week with a (natural) residue free Shampoo or Cleansing Spray.
Take a small amount of shampoo in your hands, then gently massage your scalp with the shampoo. Make sure you go all the way down to the tips of the Dreadlocks. It is very important to rinse the Dreads with water after shampooing.
And if you want to take a shower without washing your dreads, or only wash your bangs, you can use a Shower Cap.
