Nothing last forever, not even locks! People think that when you decide to wear locks, you’re stuck with them forever, until you decide to shave them all off. Well, that’s not the case.
Dreadlocks is a very old hairstyle consisting of matted hair. It is worn by many naturals, women and men, and is not dedicated to Rastafarian ONLY.
You can achieve this hairstyle, in many different ways, but not washing your tresses for days is not one of them. The only thing you’re going to achieve is having unhealthy and smelly hair…
The techniques to create this hairstyle include: backcombing, comb coils, interlocking… Depending on your hair type, length and texture, the method should be adapted to get the best results.
If you want to remove your locks and avoid the clippers, check out these few tips.
What you will need:
– Water (use a spray bottle with a lot of water)
– Conditioner (optional)
– Something sharp, a needle, a rat-tail comb.. I have even seen people use forks. Hey if it works go for it!!
Wet one lock, then apply a generous amount of conditioner. Although, the conditioner is optional, some say it works better. It also moisturise and condition your hair at the same time.
Finally, with your chosen accessory, start combing the lock from tips to top. Do it bit by bit, as you want to retain as much hair as possible.
I won’t lie, it’s a LONGGG process, and there will be a lot of shredded hair but if you don’t want to cut off everything, it’s a good solution.
