Coconut Water

Posted by kenchill. Categories Random

While I was attending the Junk Figure 8ight (or was ie Ei8ht? Hmm, that will be Project Ei8ht) event last year, I met Apit, a dreadlocked dude who was working at a local t-shirt shop. He shared some tips with me about dreadlocks and also his adventures in KL with his dreadlocks.

One thing he told me was that rinsing your dreadlocks with coconut water is good. Fresh coconut water from the coconut, no additives, etc. I haven’t tried it out yet, so if any of you tried it before, do drop me a comment on how it feels like after the rinse and the after effects yeah.

I do spray a mixture of lemon juice + salt + water on my dreadlocks every now and then to tighten them up and also make them smell nicer (heck). After the lemon spray dries, my dreadlocks feel lighter and a bit rougher (which I like).

And sea water helps a lot. Helps your dreadlocks tighten up real good. I’m definitely gonna dip my hair in the sea water everyday when I’m in Bali.

    Short ones? I am growing it longer. But then again, no wonder there’s cockroaches crawling in the kitchen everyday.
