Because its the end of your real hair I think you could crochet it and not cause a terrible amount of damage but if you are worried maybe you could wrap it.

just wrap it where it's separating, that way you aren't compromising with the hook

What would be a good "material" to wrap it with?

embroidery thread or hemp hemp lasts longest

theres many ways to wrap

if its not to be decorative then the criss cross wrap works best on young dreads

but if u want decrrative a speed wraps fastest but will fall apart in weeks (just wrap wrap wrap)

a way prettier more decerative way is macreme like knotting google chinese staircase freindshop bracelets for 1 of the knots u can use in embroidry thread these can last months even a year or 2 in hemp they can last many years

Awesome! I heard a simple wool thread would be good too, since wool is strong. Is this true? And if so, would it be recommended?

wool probly will leave wool fibers ..fuzz in your dreads i would think anyway

it seems fine for tams but tightly wrapping id worry alot of the fibers would get sucked into them

Depending on how long your natural hair is... you might want to consider taking the extensions out.

I can understand how attached you can become to the length (being someone who waited five years to grow my hair past my waist...which ended up shrinking up above my shoulders when it locked, hah).

I just have a couple reasons for you to consider...

One is that by crocheting or reattaching the hair at the base, you're only causing more damage to the ends. It will take longer for your hair to "dread" at the ends once you DO decide to take the extensions out. Why not kill two birds with one stone? Allow your hair to grow, tighten and heal all at once, instead of prolonging the process (I guess that's three birds).

The other (more important) reason is that in the long run, I think you'll be happier and more PROUD of your naturally locked hair.

Whatever you chose, take some time think about it before making a move you might regret :)

Love and Peace
