Often people who want to make a hairdo in the form of dreadlocks, have to abandon their ideas because of the mass of prejudices surrounding it. Myths about dreadlocks go a lot, but gradually many of them manage to be destroyed. Many are frightened by the fact that dreadlocks are supposedly more harmful to hair than good. Skeptical people usually list the same list of common misconceptions, to each point of which there is a truthful answer. The most common myth is that fleas and lice are planted in dreadlocks. If you do not wash your hair and generally give up personal hygiene, then the parasites will be bald head. If you regularly wash your head and take care of yourself, no problems with lice should arise.
Pediculosis is a contagious disease, and its occurrence does not depend on the type of hair and hair.
Вторым мифом является утверждение о том, что дреды имеют неприятный запах. Скорее всего, связано это с непривычным видом такой прически – она кажется чем-то неряшливым, как следствие – ассоциируется с грязью и неприятными запахами. Волосы действительно хорошо впитывают all the flavors, and therefore, if after washing splashing на дреды perfumes or for a long time is in premises with strong smells – hair in dreadlocks, like any others, will be impregnated with these aromas until the next wash or a little longer. After washing your head with dreadlocks you need more time and attention to give hair drying, since without access to air rotting processes can begin, and then really dreadlocks will smell bad.
The third myth says that if you wash your hair with soap and do not comb it, dreadlocks will arise. But this is true only for hair of African type, and on them this process takes from one to three years, and at first hair does not look very beautiful. In the case of hair types that are common in the middle band, in the absence of a comb, uncombed hair will remain simply unkempt hair, and in a year they fall not into neat dreadlocks, but into one large tangle.
The appearance of dreadlocks is best entrusted to masters, especially since such a procedure is not too expensive, but it looks very stylish.
Another myth is that dreadlocks are very harmful to the hair. But in reality, their creation does not require any chemical or thermal impact, in the future, hair and scalp also have no effect. So if you compare with daily combing, and sometimes styling, which use varnishes, mousses, hair dryers and other not very harmless means, dreadlocks can be considered a rest for both hair and scalp. Use to create dreadlocks of wax is another myth, so not all types of dreads are done, and a method with wax is rarely used. If the client wants, the professional master can use the wax, but it will just as easily be done without it.
The fact that you can get rid of dreadlocks can only be shaved head nalyso, partly true statement, as to unravel the dreadlocks really can not. But you can grow unbonded hair for 3-4 cm, and this length after circumcision is quite enough for a good haircut. Therefore, лысая the head after the dreads is also a myth. Many people think that real dreadlocks can be weaved only from their hair, and so if the hair is small – it's better not to do it, because nothing good will come of it. But in reality, besides natural dreadlocks, there are safe ones – when one's hair is plaited in a pigtail and rolled around with artificial hair. Such dreadlocks create the right volume and a different color if desired, but they are not so durable as compared to natural dreadlocks.
The last misconception is that the dreadlocks do not need further adjustments. It is not needed if a person plans to cut dreadlocks. Otherwise, new ones are needed every few weeks, and the elongated part changes every six months. These procedures are not complicated, and if you compare them with the construction of a daily hairstyle on long hair, you can say that the time for care of dreadlocks does not take at all.
