crochet recovery experiences
crochet and dread tools recovery
1. A LOT. I crocheted extensions onto each of my 42 dreads. It required A LOT of crocheting to get the extension tight enough on my Twist and Ripped dread so it wouldn't fall out.
2. I crocheted my entire head all over probably 7-8 times over the course of 2.5 months. Although when the stupid extensions would fall out I would have to crochet them back in.
3. all over sessions: 8 crocheting of extensions onto my tips? Sheesh: 40 times??
4. At about the three month mark, I was sick of my extensions and the fake-ness. They kept falling out and were so generic looking.
5. My hair started looping overnight. I have really curly hair and the loops were unbelievable. I was in love!
6. My dreads were never tight from being crocheted, they were however weighed down from the weight of the extensions, so when I took the extensions out, my hair was free to twirl and dread on its own, which happened rather fast. My roots even dread really quickly because of my hair type. Its quite phenomenal actually.
7. They were so fuzzy!!!!! I hated it! But after 2 months or so, the fuzz calmed down and my hair was on its way to healthy healing\
8. I never really had a "woven" look
9. within 1 week the roots were dreading naturally without effort
10. My dreads lost the manufactured look slowly over probably 1 month. Each month they keep getting better and better. It really is a phenomenal process. I am so happy I threw out my crochet hook!!! and my fake extensions.
I had to use olive oil on the tips of my hair to help with the split ends from all my crocheting.
