    Default How do I wash with out retwisting?

    I want to wash my hair more often but i dont want to retwist. My goal is to retwist every 6 to 8 weeks, but i cant go that long with out washing. I want to wash once a week at least...but the problem is, if i dont retwist my roots grow togeether and it is horrible when i get ready to twist(painful). I see all these ppl with their clean looking loc and they have lots of new growth, i want that. i want to see my scalp all the time, plus i want the convience of wash and go. how do i get that? Tell me somebody please

    im not intersted in freeforming, im just curious how other ppl wash their hair and dont have to retwist right away, but when they do, its not like they have to do surgery by seperating the roots. Anybody know?

    Can you switch from twisting to latching?

    There's also lots of threads on latching here on NP.

    I only twist my hair every 6 to 8 weeks. My hair gets soaked daily, either with shampooing, co-washing or rinsing. There has been the odd time when I didn't rinse, and it's not something I like.

    While I do have a few locs that like to "hook up", for the most part I'm fairly lucky in that my locs stay separated.

    I think if you want to wash more often, you should, and then take the time to "pop" your locs. That would help to keep them separated until you are ready to retwist again.
