I wash my dreads every day, but they smell terrible! What am I doing wrong?
I think we can all agree that washing your hair is a really great idea - but you, my friend, have a case of "too much of a good thing"! Your dreads smell funky for a very simple reason: they aren't getting dry.
YES, you should totally wash your locks BUT they must get 100% dry, all the way to the middle, before you wet them again. This is especially important if you are still applying wax, as it will trap present 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 (with it's anti-fungal, antibacterial oils) and then blow dry it (on a low heat setting) 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.
