I ‘detoxed’ my boyfriend’s dreadlocks for the first time in SIX YEARS – the results were so satisfying
A woman has shared what happened when she ‘detoxed’ her boyfriend’s dreadlocks for the first time in six years – and viewers were shocked at the results.
Alessandra Sophia, 20, originally from Austria, took to her TikTok account to reveal the grueling process behind ‘detoxing’ her partner’s hair.
The mechanic revealed that the intricate wash used a combination of baking soda, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar.
Detoxing is a tested method for deep cleaning dreadlocks, which allows the hair to rid itself of the buildup of products, oils and dirt that have accumulated over time.
During the how-to video, viewers were invited to watch as she washed and rinsed his hair out a total of three times.
However, people were left confused at the TikToker’s video and questioned if it was just a regular wash.

Although the mechanic enjoyed the process, she remarked the grueling three-round wash made her hands feel ‘numb’
She wrote: ‘Detoxing my boyfriend’s six-year-old dreads for the first time. His hair is so long.’
Alessandria filled a bucket with warm water form the shower and used it to wet her boyfriend’s hair.
She was then seen adding baking soda, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar to the mixture.
The concoction slowly began to foam and eventually transformed into a muddy brown color as the dirt seeped away from her partner’s dreadlocks.
She repeated the process twice more before unveiling a fresher, cleaner and healthier set of dreadlocks as seen in a second video.
She explained that her hands were ‘numb’ afterwards, and even remarked ‘wowwww’ at the amazing transformation.
However, viewers didn’t share her sentiment, with one asking why she even did it. They wrote: ‘I’m just curious, what does it mean to detox dreads?? And why do you do it???’

Another added: ‘Unpopular opinion: you’re not doing much because as soon as you add the vinegar to the baking soda, the solution is neutralized.’
‘I have so many questions’ said a third.
Someone else asked: ‘Detoxing it’s equal to a wash? Or it’s a different process and he still has been taking care of his scalp and hair?’
Another added: ‘How does it not smell if he hasn’t washed it for so long? Not trying to be rude I’m just curious’.
To which Alessandra responded: ‘Because he’s washed it regularly.’
One more asked: ‘His hair don’t get itchy?’
‘As someone from Asia who is not familiar with this, I’m curious why people do this?? Is this for fashion or what?’ asked another.
The video has since gone viral and has racked up over 7 million views.
