Thou shalt not ignore moisture rituals

You natural hair need moisture to look and remain healthy moisturise your hair and scalp daily. Use a balanced moisture protein and oil based hydration spray on both your hair and scalp.

Thou shalt not re-twist/palm-roll and interlock thy hair dry

Grooming & manipulating your dry hair causes snapping & breaking of the hair at the root. As a result, you will continuously have fuzzy roots & broken hairs at the base of your loc. This also makes your loc thinner & less healthy.

Thou shalt wash thy hair thoroughly

Dreadlocks absorb products, dust, and smells, don’t be cheap about this a proper salon wash is vital to keep your hair clean and smell free. Also, dirty hair is difficult to moisturise.
Keep it clean.

Thou shalt not retighten your roots too often

Interlocking hair every two weeks or twisting your roots too tightly causes traction alopecia. It doesn’t matter how thick or strong your hair is. So, unless you wanna be bald, stop it.
Stop it now.

Thou shalt not have hair envy

If you’re going to have locs, you’ll need to embrace your own hair. Everyone’s hair is unique. Even more so, everyone’s dreadlocks are unique. Accept the dreadlocks that you have because it will never look liker “hers”.

Thou shalt not use wax or wax based products in your hair

Build-up can cause colour changes and strange scents in your hair when those things start to disintegrate inside of your loc. Wax based products only increase the likelihood of lint and build-up becoming a problem with your dreadlocks. Also, waxes are typically water-proof, so it will be hard for you to moisturise your dreads

Thou shalt protect thy hair from lint

Bits of that white towel, sweater, bed linen or just some random thread, can look very tacky & make your hair look dirty as well. Tie your hair or wear a satin bonnet up at night (whenever you are home). If your dreadlocks are very long, you can consider a lock sock or use an extra large satin cap.

Thou shalt not continuously prune thy locs lest thy locs fall off

Everything you are cutting on the outside is attached to the inside. Pruning locs weakens your loc. This is especially true if you have baby locs as the fuzz that you see is what helps to build the loc. Cutting off fuzz by “pruning” locs is usually a recipe for disaster.

Do not style too tightly

This is similar to #4. Many people, in an effort to get those parts and hairline looking slick and neat, over-tighten the hair while styling. Again, this can lead to traction alopecia.

Thou shalt not leave they hair wet for days

I understand. You want to be all natural and not use a dryer. However, especially if you have long locs, water can stay inside your locs for days and cause mould and other fungi to form in your hair. Please embrace the time spent on the overhead dryer or infrared dryer
