My dreads are smelling – what can I do?

Because dreadlocks are composed of densely matted hair, they will never dry in the same way as normal hair. As a result, they may retain water, resulting in the mustiness you smell.

When you’re done washing, squeeze the dreads as gently as possible with your hands. Use a microfiber towel to catch as much moisture as possible. Replace the wet towel with a dry one and keep going until no more water can be extracted from them.

The ideal thing to do is let your dreadlocks dry in the open air and sunshine. This will help prevent mold and mildew from growing within and will renew them. If you can’t do that, run your dryer on a low or cold setting to keep them fresh.
