View Full Version : A few maintenance questions

08-23-2010, 12:24 AM
- How often should I wash my tst given I am still in the starter phase? I got tst's installed a few days ago, and I figured that for now I wouldn't wash it until I got my first retwist in a month. Would that help the locking process or hinder it? I do want my locs to get thick.

- At what point can I begin a normal shampoo regimen? I normally wash once a week, but I don't want the twists to come out

- How long will I have to keep retwisting until the new growth goes directly into the loc? I wanted to go to a salon maybe about twice, then retwist on my own based on how my hair ended up looking

- Lastly, are there any threads/links that give more advice on maintenance? Thanks
