Dreads Maintenance

Using Rubberbands To Hold DreadLocks

Rubberbands can be very useful when you are starting and maintaining dreadlocks. While putting rubberbands on too tight can hurt your dreads, wearing them snug, to gather the hair at the roots of your dreadlocks, can help your dreads tighten faster than they normally would. Rubberbands are also handy for keeping new dreadlocks separated. As a general rule, if you are not able to roll the rubber bands up and down the dread they are on too tight.
