Just my curiosity, after browsing members' pictures...who on here really truly uses NO maintenance other than washing and separating?

I don't think beads count. I am at almost five months from backcombing, and have lots of great locking going on. I have what looks like to me more fuzz and loose hair than lots of folks in similar stages, and just wondered if there is more maintenance going on than what gets talked about, know what I mean?

ME!!!! But in the first two years I tried crocetting and tucking loose hairs in.. but personally now, I love the messy look and I embrace anything my hair wants to do. :)

Me as well! I didn't have a choice when it came to dreading, my little hairs did it themselves!

if you used wax or any harsher methods in the beginning it can take a little while to catch up in the maturity of your dreads. :o)

It depends what your definition of what maintenance is I suppose. Everyone has their own idea about that. Maintenance to me is just keeping an eye on them, knowing when they want to be washed, drying them well and knowing when they require a bit of oil to be added to the soda or vinegar solution.I also sleep on a woolen jumper which could be called maintenance I suppose because the aim is to keep them looking their best..although it is being done with natural methods, it is still maintenance.
