The frequency at which you should wash and retwist your dreadlocks can depend on several factors, including your hair type, the size of your locs, and your personal preferences. However, in general, it is recommended to wash your dreadlocks every 1-2 weeks to keep them clean and healthy.
When it comes to retwisting your dreadlocks, it is generally recommended to do it every 4-6 weeks to maintain the shape and tightness of your locs. However, it's important not to over-retwist your locs, as this can cause damage to the hair and scalp.
Ultimately, the best approach is to listen to your hair and adjust your routine as needed. If your locs feel dirty or oily, it may be time to wash them. If you notice your locs starting to lose their shape, it may be time for a retwist. Paying attention to your hair's needs and being gentle when caring for your locs can help keep them healthy and looking their best.
