Dread Maintenance

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.

Dread Maintenance

Ok, from what i gather from all the discussions the crochet method is not desirable, and its true, i hate maintaining my dreads and i can see the damage it does, but they are still in good condition and i dont think have too much damage. alot of people mention mature locks, how do i know if they are mature? Secondly i want to stop crocheting all together, what should i was my hair with? what do i need to know? what alternative methods are there? and how should i maintain my dreads? Thanks! One.
