Finally a Dreadhead or on the Way to it!
Hi Gjorgi, I'm Brandi and welcome to the best site for dreads! Soaring Eagle has set up a great place here for all of us dreadies to chat and ask questions. I looked at your pics and let me guess, they used a crochet hook? The worst and most damaging to the hair. If they had just bakcombed the sections and used no wax you'd be ok but with the hook it breaks the hair on the inside...and well outside too but makes the dreads very tight. They need to be loose in order to move freely and tangle and lock up naturally. Soaring Eagle will tell you I'm sure but using a hook also basically puts you behind in the process a minimum of 6 months. The size of your section shouldn't be too large neither, around 1 inch as the dread will get larger over time. If you are happy with them as they are now make sure to never use any wax and toss the crochet hook. Good luck to you and Happy Dreading!!!
