Wool has a good resistance against stains and odors, it is antibacterial and antimicrobial, so you don’t have to clean it too often.
If you used to wash your hair several times a week, you don’t need to change this habit. Wash as often as necessary, or whenever you feel itchiness. But remember. It’s enough to wash only your scalp!
You can dive into both natural waters and swimming pools with chlorine, but it’s important, that you rinse your dreads thoroughly with fresh water afterward, to remove all harmful substances.
Obviously, wool dreadlocks also need some maintenance, which in addition to cleaning, means the handling of fuzziness.
Wool dreadlocks become fuzzy due to normal use and rubbing, while you sleep. The pills can be easily removed by hand. Do it routinely once or twice a week in front of a mirror, it only takes a few minutes. Wet your hands and then pull them along each dread slightly more vigorously. You can easily remove smaller pills with this method, but make sure your hands are wet so that the wool pills will stick better. If there are one or two stubborn balls, feel free to simply tear them off.
Remember! If you maintain your wool dreads with these techniques, you can avoid the formation of larger fuzzy balls, and your set will always look neat and perfect.
