misconception for dreads (and i don't care what your hair type is, this is true)

you don't wash them regularly.
FALSE: some people may need to wash them more often then they did before they were dreaded. dirt and sweat stays in the hair and is harder to get out. while the locking process is beginning the less contact with water the better but hair should always be washed.

backcombing is the only way to get dreads.
FALSE: one strand twists, two strand twists, braiding, palm rolling or just not combing it are all wonderful ways to get dread.

to get rid of dreads you have to cut your hair out.
FALSE: you can steam them out or comb them out. there will be a lot of hair shedding but this is hair you would have lost simply by combing and brushing it.

dreads profile you as a trouble maker.
FALSE: while some people label other by their dreads, the style is fast becoming main stream for people of all races.

all locks look the same.
FALSE: even your locks will constantly change the longer you keep them. no one's hair is the same so if you wish to have your locks looka certain way, make sure your hair can do that.
