Should I palm roll for maintenance?

We recommend palm rolling for brand new dreadlocks, however established dreadlocks usually don’t need it.

Palm rolling has several benefits including reducing fuzziness, reducing the severity of wild loops, and helping to keep the dreadlocks cylindrical. When you palm roll we recommend doing so while your dreadlocks are still drying after a fresh wash. This will also help them dry faster. Palm rolling can be done at just about any time, but like anything we recommend not overdoing it. Anything done too excessively is often a bad thing when it comes to dreadlocks. We recommend only palm rolling in the time frame your dreadlocks are drying as an easy rule of thumb.
