Dollylocks Dreadlock Shampoo

Dollylocks Dreadlock Shampoo

Dollylocks is one of the best known brands when it comes to care products for Dreadlocks. In this blog I would like to give you more information about Dollylocks shampoo products.

Liquid Shampoo and Shampoo Bars

Dollylocks has liquid shampoos and shampoo bars in its range in different scents. These shampoos are residue free, they are hypoallergenic and pH balanced.
You can use both the Liquid shampoo and the Shampoo Bars for new Dreadlocks, but we advise you to use a Shampoo Bar first with new Dreadlocks. The Shampoo Bars have a number of extra ingredients such as Hawaiian sea salt which helps to get your Dreadlocks stiffer and tighter so that your Dreadlocks will get mature sooner.

Rosemary Peppermint Shampoo For Dreadlocks

The Liquid shampoo and the Shampoo Bar in the scent Rosemary Peppermint contains a lot of rosemary, which is very good for colored hair. The rosemary ensures that the color remains longer.

The Rosemary Peppermint shampoo is also perfect for a sensitive scalp or a scalp with flakes. The peppermint provides a calming effect, making the scalp less sensitive.

Mesh bag for the Shampoo Bar

If you prefer to use a Shampoo Bar, it is nice to purchase a Mesh Bag. With this Mesh Bag you can hold your shampoo bar much better and you can easily massage the shampoo on your scalp with the Mesh Bag.

You can also use the Mesh Bag to soak your body.

How can you wash your Real Dreads? Step-by-step:

  1. First wet your scalp and your Dreads well

  2. Use a shampoo bar to spread and massage the shampoo over your scalp. Spread the shampoo all over your scalp. When using a Mesh Bag, wet it first and then rub the Mesh bag with the shampoo bar in it over your scalp. If you don't feel comfortable going over your scalp with the Shampoo Bar, rub the Shampoo Bar between your hands so that you apply the shampoo to your hands and then massage your scalp. Do this for a few minutes.

  3. Then rinse your scalp and your Dreadlocks clean with water.

  4. Then use the Liquid shampoo, pump about 4-5 pumps of shampoo on your hands. Apply the Liquid shampoo to your Dreadlocks, so not to your scalp, only to your dreadlocks. Rub the shampoo in with your fingers by using your fingers like a comb and sliding it through your dreadlocks. Then squeeze your dreadlocks out a bit.

  5. Rinse your scalp and dreadlocks again with water. By rinsing your scalp again, you ensure that no shampoo residue remains in the roots of your Dreadlocks.

  6. Squeeze your Dreadlocks as much as possible.

  7. Then let your Dreads air dry or wrap your Dreads in a towel so that the towel can remove a lot of moisture from your Dreads.

  8. If you wish, you can then use the Dollylocks Tightening Gel on slightly damp dreadlocks to 'stick' all the loose hair back to your dreads. This way you will have beautiful, tight Dreadlocks after your wash.

You can give your Dreadlocks a Detox about 3-4 times a year.
