every four weeksPart of dreadlocks maintenance is re-twisting your hair periodically to keep the locks tight.

Can you get dreads wet everyday?

Yes, you can get your dreads wet every day, only for moisturizing purposes and it is just a little spritz. But soaking your hair with water after showering will not do your dreads any good. Wetting your dreads every day is not a good idea as you may train your hair to over-produce oils and dry out your hair strand.
