Hey so i have seen some previous posts discussing and issue quite similar to mine just thought i would post to see if i could get more specific help. So i work in an ultra grease filled kitchen 5 days a week and i am planning on starting my dreads in about a month after nearly a year of debate i have decided it is time. My plan is have them sectioned off and back combed and then for an initial 1-3 months not wash them. I see great debate/controversy over how quickly and how often immature dreads are to be washed. My friend and my brother both have or had them and i felt as thought back combing combined with not washing for a couple months seemed to do them well. My issue is the fact that i will be working in this kitchen quite often and i was wondering what my best form of action would be. I've seen it posted to cover them with plastic then wrap them that makes alot of sense to me but even so it may not do the trick how long should I wait to wash my new dreads and from that point how often should i regularly wash factoring in that they will be exposed to extreme amounts of grease regularly. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies, this website is the shit haha.
