I wash my dreads every day, but they smell terrible!


It's possible to have too much of a good thing. We can all agree that washing your hair is a really great idea - but your dreads likely smell funky for a very simple reason: they aren't getting dry.

Shampooing regularly is great, but they must as regularly get 100% dry, all the way to the middle, preferably before sleeping, and definitely before covering with a hat or a wrap.

This is especially important if you are still applying wax, which can trap moisture inside the lock, leaving you with a mildewy smell. Yuck! To get rid of the smell, wash one more time with the KB Dread Shampoo and then blow-dry or sit out in the sun. Normally you can simply air dry your locks, but it's key to get yours as dry as possible as quick as possible. From here on out, try to stick to a once-weekly washing schedule, paying special attention to drying.
