Stimulating your hair follicles can be as easy as massaging it with your fingertips or using a hair pick. This can be done while you are relaxing in-front of the TV or listening to some good music. That’s how simple it is. It only takes a few minutes each day to encourage your dreads to grow.
Miss the Feeling of a Comb?
If you miss the feeling of the teeth of a comb on your scalp, you can still achieve that with the use of a hair pick. Keep in mind that you have to buy the ones with the silver teeth, not the plastic teeth.
Using a Hair Pick for Dreadlocks Growth
The hair pick comb has been around forever. I remember seeing people using them to comb their Afro. I was doing some research, when I learned that it is also great for people with locs.
Not only is the hair pick great for stimulating your scalp, but also to relieve yourself from itchy scalp, especially if you just styled your dreads and don’t want to mess them up.
The Correct Way to Use the Hair Pick
In order to get the best results from using your hair pick comb for your locs, you have to learn how to use it correctly. This is not like combing regular natural hair.
You have to slide the teeth of the comb under your roots. Try slanting the comb when doing this, and it should slide through your roots effortlessly, especially if you have new growth.
Stimulating Your Scalp – Fingertips Technique
Another way to stimulate your follicles to promote the growth of your dreads, is to massage your scalp with your fingertips. This is also an easy method that can be done anytime.
Hair growth isn’t the only benefit that you will get from this. You can also prevent a buildup of dead skin cells, as well as eliminating dry, itchy scalp, or dandruff. I massage my scalp every day after spritzing it with my water and oil mixture.
Shampoo Brush for Dreadlocks
Keeping your scalp healthy is an important step towards getting your locs to your desired length. Use the specially designed dreadlocks shampoo brush for a thorough wash and massage.
Using this regularly to clean your scalp, can remove buildup caused by dead skin cells, dirt, and grease, as well as promote locs growth.
