5 things most people wish they knew about dreadlocks before starting the journey

You already have your glorious locs and they are beautiful. However, it was not always this fairytale. You made some mistakes on the way and there are things you wish someone had told you.

Let’s delve into them and reminisce, shall we?

1. Going to a professional is always better

You probably had that aunty that said she could do it for you and that it was not a big deal or a friend who had locked her hair and said she could replicate it. Now, you know that it would have turned out better if you had visited a professional.

2. Less chemicals is better

You should be conscious of everything you use on your hair. All hair products should be natural as this will strengthen your hair. 

3. You still have to oil your hair

Despite the fact that the hair looks different, it should still be oiled. Oil the roots, scalp and even the hair itself so your locs can glow.

4. The budding stage is no joke 

There are five stages that your locs will go through before they ‘mature’. But when it is just budding, your hair might not look so attractive and will be difficult to style. For some, it may be just 2 months but for other people, it can span 6 months or even more. 

5. People may make negative assumptions about you

You know how society assumes that those with locs and tattoos are all irresponsible weed smokers with no life ambitions? You might get a lot of that once you transition.

6. Dreadlocks are not restrictive

Before most people start their locs, they assume that the hair can only be worn in one or two styles but that is not true. It is only when they finally join the gang that they learn differently.
