The 1 Dreadlock Step Most People
Forget To Do
We all know the importance of following through with the major dreadlocking steps, such as one of the many different dread starting methods, proper upkeep, and consistently using a good clarifying shampoo.
However, there is a quick, easy step that is far less often discussed but makes a big difference. I don’t recommend using it until your dreads are mature, but once you do, you’ll make your dreads look so much neater.
It’s as easy as taking a pair of scissors to your head, and trimming the fuzz. Yes, I said it.
Trim that fuzz.
For some people, they get a little fuzzy halo of loose hairs around their dreads that stubbornly doesn’t want to disappear. This is was my case, and I noticed it makes the difference between me looking slightly-unkempt and trendily cultured. It’s a matter of simply holding a pair of scissors close to – but not touching – your dreads and snip snipping away. Make sure you target those loose hairs that are poking up and not wanting to cooperate by intertwining into your dread.
