ACV - Removes Wax From Dreadlocks

by Dave
(Wales, United Kingdom)

French translation


I've had my dreads for about 4 years now and when I made them I was told to use wax to hold them together.. granted it will hold your dreads together.

But having wax in your dreads causes bits of fluff & dirt to get locked/develops mold in the middle of dreads: It's pretty gross I know..

I had been using various "branded" dreadlock shampoo's to try and remove the wax/mold but it just wouldn't budge.. Soaked them in apple cider vinegar and it broke down most of the wax first time, I do this quite often now and my dreads feel so much cleaner :)

I hate the stereotype that dreads are dirty :(

Dread title
by: Sandra

Yes in my opinion the Apple Cider is good for clarifying...
But the use of the term "dread" is stereotypical.

The problem is that many people who have locs even use the term...

Such is life...I know I've mistakenly used words in a way which was offensive and I welcome criticism. That is how we grow...

Loc stereotypes
by: Anonymous

I hate those stereotypes as well. Have you ever seen BSmith of Bsmith with style. Google her and do an image search. Her locs are beautiful. In fact I've started using the terminology "locs" because of the definition of the word "dread".
