Hi, I'm Jennifer Hyde. I'm here today to talk to you a little bit about how to seal your dreadlocks. Dreadlocks are a tightly, intricately woven pattern within the hair that causes hair from a certain section on the head shape to all fade into one space and to actually tie itself in knots, and stay that way, pretty much forever, or until you decide you don't want them anymore. So, a lot of people go about attempting to seal in those little hairs because maybe their knots were not tied quite as tightly as they needed to be, for the lock to stay solid all by itself. So, someone might wanna reach for different topical products to put over their lock in order to create a seal. If you're seeing someone, professionally, to start your locks, they're probably going to be able to start those locks for you without any products whatsoever by simply binding the hair with itself, and that is how the lock stays sealed. Things that you want to do to coheres the hair to stay in that position would have to do with not creating a situation where you're over manipulating the hair and causing it to pull loose, and that you're also using the right kind of products on the hair so that you're not creating a situation where the hair gets too slippery and wants to slip out and pull out of those locks. So, sealing the locks could be as simple as using a proper conditioning rinse like apple cider vinegar and water over the locks after you've cleansed them, in order to seal the cuticle back, closed, therefore solidifying those locks in place, however it is that they are strategically in the hair. So, if you're looking for ways to really tighten up your locks, I encourage you to stay away from as many topical agents as you possibly can and really find ways to just push those hairs to the inside of your lock shaping and then get them to stay there by cleansing properly and conditioning properly. That is how to best seal your dreadlocks.
