When washing your hair stray away from white towels and use a scarf at bedtime. If you are suffering from linty dreadies you can always pick them out with a small tooth comb. At times, lint can get deeply lodged in your lock because unlike free flowing hair it is not combed and buildup is not able to fall off as easily.
Shampooing alone is not going to get the lint out! If it’s inside your lock you have to remove it. You may have to reshape your lock after picking but it’s way better than having lint infested dreadlocks. Tired of your linty locks pick away, with care.
Wash your hair really good and use a clarifying shampoo or castile soap to knock off the buildup. Follow up with a conditioner, gently remove visible lint with a small tooth comb, and then style as desired.
Tip: When you pick your loc always pick from the bottom of the loc and work your way up if your goal is to remove it and then restart the loc.
