a comment on my youtube got me thinkingwhat is the purpose of maintenance?when you take a car in for maintenance the goal is to keep it running good for as long as you cana tune up break check and oilchange can add years to the cars lifebut in dreads the maintenance many recomend are purely cosmetic and do great harm to the dreadits like a car thats rusting and falling apart you constantly repaint over the rust sealing in moisture to accelerate rust.maintaining dreads should follow the same philosophy as maintaining a car, doing whats healthy for the dreads so they lastolder dreads can use frequent oil changes (add some jojoba to keep em from being too dry)deep cleanses to keep them free from buildup and grungeofcourse detailing to make them look nice isnt going to make em run longer but wont hurtso beads are like pinstriping or custom paint jobs or mag wheels or a spoilernobody in theyre right minds would pour honey in theyre gas tanks or replace theyre oil with waxor take a pick axe and poke holes in the hood (well homer simpson did )but these are the kind of things we do to dreads to maintain themother sites might use maintenance as a term for doing crazy things that harm dreads but i think we should use it just for doing things that extend the life of dreads and keep them healthy

I did some maintenance last weekend, swimming in the ocean & building sandcastles in the wind. My dreads are running like a race car now!
