How long do dreadlocks last? - Dreadlocks FAQ's
If you take care of your dreadlocks they will stay healthy and tight and you can keep them as long as you like. As the hair continues to grow you'll help new knots form with clockwise rubbing. You'll always have to fix loose hair here and there, but for the most part you just have to keep them clean and free of soap residue. You'll also need to moisturize them from time to time with Dread Butta so they don't get too dry. In dreads the natural oils released by the scalp are not pulled through the hair. This is why it's important to keep them moisturized to prevent dryness and breakage.
