Step 2: Separation of Dreadlocks

  • Tools:
    • Strong comb (pointed steel comb or dreadlock comb)
    • Spray bottle
    • Bamboo Towel
  • Action:
    • Carefully separate each dread from each other, starting from the bottom and working your way up. Use a pointed comb or the teeth at the end of a regular comb.

Step 3: Deep Cleansing with Shampoo Bar

  • Action:
    • Wash hair thoroughly with Deep Cleansing Shampoo Bar. Massage it into the hair, especially focusing on the lengths. Rinse the shampoo thoroughly.

Step 4: Conditioning Process

  • Action:
      • Carefully separate each dread from each other, starting from the bottom and working your way up. Use a pointed comb or the teeth at the end of a regular comb.
      • Massage the Conditioner Bar into each dreadlock. Alternatively, you can make a mixture of grated Conditioner Bar and warm water and let your dreads rest in this mixture. Save some of the mixture in a spray bottle for later use.

    Step 5: Removing Dreadlocks One at a Time

    • Action:
        • Grab the first dreadlock. Use a pointed comb or the comb teeth to loosen hair by hair and knot by knot. Spray the area with Conditioner Bar and warm water to facilitate the detangling process.

      Step 6: Thorough hair combing

      • Action:
          • Once a dread has been loosened, comb the hair thoroughly to remove old hair and knots. Repeat the process for each dread until the entire head is free of dreads.

        Step 7: Extra Round with RAW ROOT's Dreadlock Removal Kit

        • Action:
            • Apply an extra round of Dreadlock Removal Kit to deep clean and provide extra care to hair and scalp.

          Step 8: Finishing and Care

          • Action:
              • The hair will be porous and frizzy at first. Trim the tips to give it a healthier look. Use RAW ROOT's Dreadlock Hydrating Oil, conditioner, conditioner or shampoo to restore hair to its natural state.

            After this thorough removal process, you can enjoy the freedom of your hair and begin the journey back to its natural state. Remember to give your hair extra care and love after this intensive treatment.
