Well, I have had my dreads for over a month already and today I went in to the parlor and got them tightened up.
So far the experience had been pretty good. At first I was using an acceleration salt spray to speed up the tightening process, but I couldn’t stand it. My scalp was constantly itching. Not using it makes the maturing process longer, but so be it.
From here on out, instead of doing maintenance once I month I will likely just start doing it once every three months while just giving my hair time to mature and do it’s own thing.
