new dread locking gel from dreadlockshampoo.com
Did she TnR that section of hair in the photos or was it just kind of loose hair that she covered in gel and knotted up on it's own?
okay, i've been curious about crocheting (as i assume many other ppl with messy new dreads have been) and i'm one of those people who likes to try something before i decide how i feel about it and after reading as much as i could and watching videos etc. i finally got up the courage to buy a hook and have a go. i decided to approach it by being as gentle and slow as i could and hopefully do as little damage as possible. also i decided to only do one dread, one time and then see how it responded. the result?? there is absolutely no way in hell i would let anyone near me with one of those things EVER. every little bit of motion was mangling and breaking hairs no matter how slow or careful i was. sure there were less loose hairs at the end but man it was like putting my baby in a straight jacket. i got half way through one dread, threw the damn thing in the bin and started praying for forgiveness. ill take fuzzy, healthy, happy baby dreads over hard packed prisoners any day! hope this helps those who are on the fence...
