A dreadlck congo is a term describing when two or more dreadlocks merge into one dreadlock.
Congos are often a result of the neglect method. The roots of the dreadlocks grow into each other and merge into one dreadlock. This can happen to two dreadlocks or ALL of your dreadlocks. This is something that most people want to avoid as will not only look ridiculous but it may lead to headaches and scalp issues.
“I didn’t want my dreadlocks to congo so I pull them apart after every wash.”
