A lot people are STILL sleeping on a cotton pillowcase they don't know the benefits of a silk and satin pillowcase:
Condition your scalp with a light all natural oil 2-3 times a week. Use conditioning braid spray with anti-itch formulation on your braids daily to keep your scalp happy and the hair underneath the braids healthy.
Don't be late. If you're more than a few minutes late, don't be offended if you get short shrift or if you lose your appointment altogether. Being late happens, but take responsibility when it's your blunder. Just as you would hope the stylist or salon would call you if they are running behind, it's always OK to call the salon to let them know you're going to be late.
Make sure to wash the hair and do a conditioning treatment on the hair before a weave application. This will help to keep the natural hair strong and healthy. Make sure to rest the scalp for a week between weaves application, and do a moisturizing treatment during this week for great, healthy hair!
So you're now rocking your new set of dreads but what's next? Dreadlocks take time to tighten and mature but a good maintenance routine will get them there faster.
1. YOUR FIRST WEEK:
If your dreads are brand new you won't need to wash them for around a week. With the extra bulk the dreadlocks give, you may find that your regular shower cap won't fit but Amazon offers extra large shower caps and for that matter, swim caps big enough to accommodate dreadlocks. Dreads are usually nice and tight immediately after installation but it is normal for them to then become a little messy and untidy as the maturing process is only just beginning. Wearing a Dread Sock to bed can help minimize this. Palm Rolling as often as possible is also a good idea to help shape the dreads in the first week.
