To reiterate, a dreadlock is a hardened, compacted collection of shed hair nothing more, nothing less. Dread maintenance gathers your loose new growth at the base which supports strong bases. Linear shape development is also facilitated by this form of maintenance.
Basic dreadlock maintenance is recommended every 8-12 weeks.
Maintain every 1-1.5 inches of new growth to ensure that all hair shed is captured in perpetuity. Regular maintenance results in a linear dreadlock formation.
