Can I wash my dreads?
The answer to this is a big YES. Your scalp needs to be washed very 6-9 days to remove excess oil, dead skin, and everyday dirt and debris. I also recommend doing a full dreadlock deep cleanse once a month or so. The 2 big things to remember about washing is rinsing and drying. Make sure you are thoroughly rinsing out ALL the shampoo/cleanser from your locks, and make sure they are 100% dry before you put them up or sleep on them.tying up or sleeping on wet/damp dreads can lead to that dirty gym locker smell. Below is a list of tried and true shampoos/cleansers for your locks.
