How to take care of your dreadlocks

Unlike other natural hair styles,maintaining dreadlocks is very different. They don’t need to be brushed nor  require regular trimming but need to be kept clean.

While other natural hair styles require combing to put stray hairs back in place, dreadlocks need to have stray hairs tucked back into the dread so they can dread up and lock with the rest of the hair. You’ll also notice that dreadlocks look better and better over time and as they continue to mature they become tighter and smoother and they require less maintenance. Your maintenance routine will vary depending on the age of your dreads and the method you used to start them.


Here are a few tips on how to care and maintain for your dreadlocks:


Locks tend to pick up lint and other fuzz’s, this is usually a big problem especially when you sleep, tying a scarf on your head will help keep lint and pillow feathers out of your hair.You could also opt for pillow cases and sheets that are lint free.


Whenever you wash your dreadlocks make sure you get them as dry as possible and avoid covering them in a way that they cannot dry, trust us, you really do not want to have your hair smelling like a dump towel.
When washing squeeze as much water as you can out of them, then proceed to drying with a dry towel or opt to blow dry them.


In order to ensure that your dreads are healthy and presentable, always try making regular visits the salon and consulting with your stylists. They are best placed to advice you and what maybe causing your locks to break, turn color and recommend on treatments and products that can be used to curb the problem.

    The master of  North Sudan still killing civilians, and does not surrender to ICC? Sudan government they are playing with ICC, or they do not care about this Issue is commit war crime against human rights. If ICC will bring one of them, and then they will know how many on the  record? Bashir, and Haroun, and Mohamed, and more thanks.

    That’s the correct way to go about it Bwana AG, not some bellicose statements by Wetangula and others implying they would ignore the court order. Whatever happens, be prepared to carry out the eventual court order after exhausting the appeal process.

    Just like the odm/pnu coalition, the executive, the judiciary and the legislature ‘coalition’ is quite a queasy one

    In Security Council Resolution 1593, the Council implied that Article 98(1) doesn’t limit the ICC’s ability to arrest—even though Sudan is not a party to the Rome Statute. Thus, the Security Council implied that these officials do not have personal immunities under international law for the ICC-Darfur matter because the Security Council had removed them.
    The Security Council confirmed its removal of government officials’ personal immunities for the ICC-Darfur matter because, in Resolution 1593, it implied that these officials do not have personal immunities for Article 98(1). In Security Council Resolution 1593, the Council stated that Article 98(2) limited the ICC’s ability to arrest because the “[international] agreements referred to in Article 98-2 of the Rome Statute [existed].”114 However, the Security Council did not state that Article 98(1) limited the ICC’s ability to arrest.115 Since the Security Council noted the existence of international agreements that triggered Article 98(2) and didn’t note the existence of personal immunities under international law that would trigger Article 98(1), the Security Council implied that it overrode customary international law and removed government officials’ personal immunities for the ICC-Darfur matter.
    The ICC can legally indict, arrest and prosecute President Al Bashir because the Security Council implicitly removed his personal immunity when it referred the Darfur conflict to the ICC. This removal of immunity is implied from the Security Council’s invoking its Chapter VII powers under the UN Charter to grant jurisdiction to the ICC to adjudicate the serious violations of international humanitarian law in the Darfur conflict. Furthermore, this removal of immunity is confirmed by the Security Council’s indicating that Al Bashir does not have personal immunity under international law for Article 98 of the Rome Statute. Additionally, it’s also confirmed by the Security Council’s subsequent actions and statements.
    However, even though President Al Bashir does not have personal immunity before the ICC, current heads of state generally have inviolate personal immunity under customary international law because the Rome Statute lacks sufficient acceptance to establish a new customary international law that removes personal immunities. Thus, until the Rome Statute gains greater acceptance, the only way an international tribunal can indict, arrest or prosecute the current head of a state that is not party to the Rome Statute is if the Security Council removes her personal immunity.

    Why is it so necessary to embrace this fellow Bashir, when countriel like Brazil and South Africa have already done the right thing and indicated their intention ot arrest him. If the State Law Offfice ‘evaluated and found itself satisfied’ that the judgement was in error, what then is the purpose of the Judiciary and filing the Appeal? The Vienna Convention has been overtaken by the activities of people like Slobodan Milosevic, Charles Taylor and the instigators of the Rwanda Genocide, and it is to curtail such that an International Criminal regime now pertains.
    Again I say that for too long Government of Kenya officials have acted as if their internal meetings and memos constitute Due Process, and they must be shown by the Honourable Chief Justice THAT THESE TIMES ARE WELL AND TRULY BEHIND US.
    Mr Githu Muigai, please tell your clients to simply not invite Mr Bashir to Kenya, very simple, really.
