you don't need to maintain them. they maintain themselves. Get a residue free shampoo form Dreadlockshampo.com, or use Dr. Bronners, or the BS and ACV wash. throw out any combs, crochet hooks, or other tools. wash them 2-3 times a week. After a few months (Closer to a year), you can start washing 1-2 times a week.
maturity depends on your hair. some people it happens really fast, other like me it takes about a year. When you can wash them and they don't come undone or loosen up a lot, they are maturing. mature locks see no change when you wash them except for a few frizzies here and there, but as soon as they dry, those frizzies go away.
To recover from the hook, just stop using it or anything else. Just let them fix themselves.
