Probably one of the most annoying questions a person without dreadlocks can ask a person with dreads is... "Do you wash your locks?"
You've probably had someone ask you that right? Or you've heard a friend being asked that question. Most dreadheads are usually very easy going, and just laugh it off and pay it no attention... but for some it can be quite a rude thing to be asked.
There seems to be a some unfounded myth in the general population that because you have a very different hairstyle to most - Dreadlocks are one way that Rastafarians distinguish themselves from non-Rastas - the immediate thought is that you take absolutely no care over your hair and your head whatsoever, and just leave your locs to their own devices.
But in this day and age... keeping your dreads and your scalp clean and fresh is not only a must, but it's also really easy, especially with the range of different cleansing products available for you today.
And because people with dreadlocks are commonly very environmentally friendly, choosing a soap or shampoo to wash both your dreads and your scalp with that meets those environmental needs, is also one of the major issues for choosing such a product.
Everybody is different, and everybody prefers their own way of cleaning their hair and scalp. Some like liquid dread shampoos, and others prefer the good old fashioned way of scrubbing... with an in-your-hand... good old scrub... dreadlock shampoo bar!
