We know you're rocking that new style with confidence and expression, but sometimes that excitement can come with a few little bumps in the road – literally. We're talking about those pesky tension bumps that can pop up around your hairline or wherever your dreads are a bit tighter!

What are Tension Bumps?

Tension bumps are tiny red bumps that show up when your hair follicles get a little irritated. It's like your scalp is saying, "Hey, this pulling is a bit much!" They can become red, swollen and can honestly get really uncomfortable.


So what can you do?


Calming the bumps!

Here are some tips to help those bumps heal faster and keep your scalp feeling happy:

  1. Preventing Them: Tension bumps will mostly happen all around the edges of your hairline, because you have a lot of baby hair there, so do what I do and make sure you leave some of your baby hair out when you first install your set of dreadlocks, let those bad boys breathe!

  2. Loosen Up: This might seem obvious, but sometimes the simplest solution is the best. Talk to whoever is helping you do your hair about loosening up the dreads a bit, especially around the edges. Remember, comfort and style can go hand-in-hand!

  3. Scalp TLC: Pamper your scalp with something that will soothe it. Start with a simple head massage as this will help improve circulation and encourages those bumps to fade away and then go ahead and reach out for our Rescue Anti Blemish Serum- Skin Tone Balancer, Spot Treatment – Wildcrafted Beauty Give it a little roll wherever those pesky bumps are popping up and you'll likely see the inflammation and redness go down in the matter of just a couple days.
