I started my dreads and "maintained" them via the crochet method. I stopped crocheting them about 3 months ago. They are getting softer, albeit slowly...

However, now I have tons of stray hairs that stick out everywhere!! Please tell me they will start to dread on their own someday??

Yeah they will dread one day, thats for sure!

It's mostly part of the recovery process from crocheting!

Go on and everything will turn great!

I'm just where you are. Dreadlocks started with crotchet, maintained very rarely (fortunately, I'm lazy and didn't listen to the girl who crotcheted them) and now after a month of not crotcheting at all I have frizzies and strays. How often do you use BS or/and ACV? Is once a week enough or will it help them poor thingies if I do this more often?
