Can I go swimming with my new dreadlocks?

Yes! (as long as you know how to swim, that is)

Occasional swimming in chlorinated or salt water can be a benefit, helping to tighten your locks. Chlorine and salt water can dry out your skin and hair follicles, so be sure to rinse your scalp. Sun-drying can help also.

If you swim regularly for work or play, more attention may be needed. Newer dreads, particularly shorter ones, may need some extra back-combing and palm-rolling to help them get back on track.

But don't sweat it too much! (save that for the beach volleyball) No matter their length or age, palm roll while damp, then wax / gel again, once they're totally dry.
