Confused  I have been growing my dreads for 6 months and they are coming along nicely.  I regularly have been going to a loctician to get it washed and twisted.  It's $65 a visit every two weeks or so and that's getting a little steep for me.  I would like to start maintaining my hair myself and I need help.  I would like to hear from some of you guys who take care of your dreads yourself.  Also regarding shampooing as in techniques and products.  Thank you so much for your help!

I started out washing my hair every 2 weeks followed by a retwist.  After about 9 months maybe I'm not sure, I started retwisting once a month and then just whenever I felt like it.  I have a loc album that describes my locing process better just click on the profile.  hope this helps.
