      Anyone trying to grow, twist and train dreadlocks will have different results from anyone else, because no two people have the same hair.  

      Stay away from chemicals if you can that may stress your hair and damage your dreadlocks. Unless you happen to be unusually active, washing your hair once a week is good dreadlock maintenance.  

      Also avoid wax on the hair as this can lead to buildup in the long run. Many dreadlock wearers have regretted adding wax to their dreads in the beginning.  

      The right shampoo for your locs depends on your hair’s natural texture. Is it dry, oily or normal?  

      If dry...

      Try Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Herbal Shampoo  

      If oily...

      Try Carol’s Daughter Clarity Herbal Shampoo

      If normal...

      You‘re lucky enough to use whichever one you think suits you best.  

      Carol’s Daughter Tui Herbal Shampoo
      Carol’s Daughter Khoret Amen Herbal Shampoo  

      For each of the above suggestions, the basic idea is to stay away from overly creamy shampoos as you don’t want any chance of leaving residue in your locs.

      Loc Butter is great Carols Daughter hair product that will quickly freshen up your locs before a night out on the town or that interview where you need to look ultra-presentable. A little Loc Butter goes a long way!

      Carol Daughter Products are sold at your local Sephora store or

          I’ve also found that plain castille liquid soap works WONDERS for the gentlest washing and ridding of residue.  Every once in a while I’ll use Dove conditioning shampoo to keep the sheen and up the condition, but other than that just rosemary infused un-petroleum jelly to keep them from drying out.

        • Sephora is a little less expensive than CD site.
