FAQs about maintenance and care for dreadlocks

Q: Do I need to take apart and redo my dreadlocks when new hair grows out?

A: It's not that complicated. You just need to incorporate the new growth into the existing dreadlocks and continue from there.


Q: How long does new hair typically grow before needing to be redone, and what is the usual maintenance cycle?

A: It depends on how fast your hair grows. Generally, if it grows quickly, you might need to redo it about once a month. If it grows slowly, you might go without redoing them for your entire life, but this will lead to the locks becoming intertwined with each other because of how disorderly the hair has grown into a solid mass. Additionally, the frequency with which you wash your hair also contributes to the mess in the hair, after all, intertwined hair isn't easy.


Q: Are the maintenance methods the same for natural dreadlocks and extensions?

A: No, they are different. Natural dreadlocks can be maintained by directly crocheting or weaving them. Extensions, however, require different treatment depending on the situation, usually involving managing them with synthetic hair wrapping.


Q: Can I maintain my own dreadlocks?

A: Generally, it's not advisable. First, you need to know how to crochet dreadlocks unless you've specifically learned this technique for self-maintenance. Another issue is that it's difficult to see the top of your head clearly. Even if you can see it, working in reverse with your hands can quickly become tiring.


Q: Will dreadlocks deform or change over time?

A: Generally, they won't. If they bend, you can straighten them out yourself or use some maintenance products.


Q: Will long new hair make the dreadlocks look unattractive?

A: No, it won't. If your dreadlocks grow long and you prefer the clean, shorter look they originally had, you can simply trim the length of the dreadlocks.


Q: Are there any recommended maintenance methods?

A: Each morning, comb through each dreadlock to prevent them from tangling. Also, gently roll each dreadlock back and forth between your hands to help them maintain a round and full shape.
