Hey guys, I joined the site to prepare for my natural locks and get advice. I took out my synthetic dreadlocks and my hair kinda well, was dreaded. Very loose at the roots but the rest is knotted up with loose tips. I washed my hair with dreadsoap and they've stayed in place!

Any advice on how to maintain my accidental dreadlocks?

Hey there Lady, does not matter what you call them, they are dreadlocks. So how do you maintain them? Just like Amanda said, wash 2-3 times a week and separate any sections trying to join onto each other. That's it, real easy huh? Your hair may shrink, loop & zig zag, just let them be when they do, that is how they mature. There is nothing else for you to do but enjoy your "accidental" dreads....peace

I think I'll go for "surprise dreads," lol.

That's all you need to do. From here on out, just wash a few times a week (1-3 times is normal. Don't wash them every day). Then, when they start to congo together, separate them. I have a video on my page showing how to separate locks. Mine are more mature, but the idea is the same. You don't want to separate them if they are only congoing at the roots. It's when the bodies of 2 locks tangle that you want to keep them apart.
