Washing Dreadlocks


So I decided to finally film this video on washing dreadlocks, which is kind of the topic most mentioned in the comments and the topic I receive the most questions about. I'll be talking about how I changed my habits of washing, new dreadlocks, what I use to wash and how and waxing. I hope this answers some of all the questions I receive, but I'd like to note, that things change over time, and the content of this, might not be true in two years from now :)

Please try to keep a nice tone when commenting and note that this is only my personal opinion and experiences and that this is definitely not true for everybody - And that's perfectly alright. You should do exactly what suits you! :)

Thank you very much for watching! I hope you check by my blog www.galapril.com or my Instagram @galaprilcom

  1. I'm happy seeing your videos, thank you. I tried 2 times wax on my dreadlocks couple of years ago and I've still some residues in some dreadlocks. So I confirm, don't do that. You don't need to do that!

  2. I can tell from my personal experience that washing dreadlocks helps them lock up. But then it's really important to maintain them in some way. It actually works like wet felting : D.
    I've been a little jealous of your dreadlocks since I discovered your blog (more than 3 years ago I guess). I had dreads 3 times (once I made them using your tips) but somehow couldn't stand them for more than a year or so. I think I'm jealous even now, though I don't really think I'll turn my hair into dreads again.

  3. hi, I'd like to have same dreadlocks than you (I don't like too nice and too round) but I don't understand all your video in english... is it possible to write your method to begin that? I saw video with your sister but I don't know how much lines I have to do or how much time to keep elastic on the roots and the ends? and after, how keep it with new roots? thank you :)

  5. Thank you for making all your videos with nice instructions :) There is one question I wanted to ask for many years but I am always too bashful. Today I decided to try. Could you please make a video carefully showing us your roots and how they have formed? Also we can see in detail, the pattern you used when segmenting/partitioning hair, especially at the front and back. Sometimes dreadlock roots are thinner than the middle bits, I am sure lots of people would like to see how you tackle this issue. I understand if you don't have the time right now with school. Anna, you are brave to keep making these videos. When I read comments sometimes, they are not always nice. People do not choose their words carefully with kindness. And they ask silly questions which you have already answered. Thank You!
