What bothers me is that how some people can support this when it's a non debatable fact that it causes permanent hair damage; Specially when these people claim knowledge in dreads.

I find it a completely stupid manner, growing hair for years, and then just like that break that hair into small broken hairs in short hours. Makes me very sad to see people damaging their hair in such way.

Ironically, I see this type of comments in a lot of places which claim that there's a proper way to do crocheting and damaging only happens if you're doing it wrong.

Anyway, crocheting dreads is pure evil, and I really wish to see this --sadly, recognized as a dreading method by a lot-- ending soon...

Thank you for your story. This site is the reason I binned my crochet needle. Now I know crochetting can lead to balding, I'm letting the dreads grow without crochetting. One upside of not crochetting any more is that the tension of the hair at the scalp lessens quickly and it should not be a concern of hair loss any more, or am I wrong?

My thought is now how to get rid of these dreads. Still exploring.

exploring/ and well if you have haor looss thats noticable it might take more then just stopping to reverse it but stoppings going to stop and reverse slight loss

severe loss might take massaging the scalp and vitamins

So @soaring eagle, you would recommend that it's better to start with loose dreads and allowing them to tighten on their own?

I have a few rows of hair that I twisted and ripped and not all of them went to the base of my head. After suggestions from you I've stopped that process and started letting my hair do its thing. But I'm concerned about the ones that are loose that I've manually started. i really don't want to rip them up and start over, so I'm hoping they will just tighten on their own.
