I put my dreads in a week ago (started with twist & rip, man I have zero patience). So now, I leave them be, right? Lol I am simply unsure of maintenance! I'm a bit paranoid of my messy root sections crossing. Please tell me to just leave them alone! It is my nature to pick (and that is part of why I am doing this).
I do have to say, there is a tremendous freedom in this process, especially from a female perspective. It's messy-- so what? It's frizzy-- it will be. It is what is is. I love it. But I do also want to be sure I am taking the best care of my hair, my dreads, as I possibly can.
So, just wash it, let it dry, & leave it alone? How often is it recommended I go through & separate things out? And is that about all I need to do? I'm not going for perfect, just healthy Thanks in advance!
