Why are the Raw Roots products especially good for dreadlocks?

Hvorfor er Raw Roots produkterne især gode til dreadlocks?

Raw Root's hair and dreadlock products are water-based and rinse off easily with water.

This means that they do not leave residue on the hair.

So regardless of whether you have dreadlocks or not, your hair will not be weighed down by the products and your dreadlocks will not contain fats or silicones that cannot be cleaned out.


A little about residue

Residues are care substances that are not absorbed by the hair, but instead lie like a membrane on the outside of the hair shaft and overtime the hair becomes dull and heavy.

If you have dreadlocks, this gets trapped inside your dreadlocks and it becomes difficult to dry, this in the worst case gives fungus or a bad smell.

With repeated use, more and more accumulates and it will become difficult, if not impossible, to remove again.

Residue on the scalp and hair is also the main culprit for scalp problems and hair loss as accumulations on the scalp will stop fire and air and thereby the hair roots die.



A shampoo should wash clean and then you can add conditioners. Conditioners that are not rinsed out with water should NOT be an ingredient in shampoo as the hair will never be clean and free of build-up.


If you are in doubt as to whether your hair is free of build-up or would you like to do a deep cleanse, I have developed a detox kit which effectively removes residue and cleanses the hair of impurities. It can be used both for dreadlocks and non-dreaded hair.
