the truth about crocheting dreadlocks
Unfortunately, for many different reasons, some people are not able to go "the natural route" on their dreadlock journey and maintenance is required.People who crochet or sew in their loose hairs should not be frowned upon. Sure crocheting can be a little damaging - but its not that bad and there are alternatives to the good ole crochet hook.perhaps this forum could try to stop jamming the natural method down people's throats and maybe provide alternative suggestions for maintenance.Since joining this forum, I have noticed that not many people dont have the courage to get up and say - 'hey, i tried this way and for me it worked'. Are you all too scared to come out and tell it like it is?I know that deep down most people would jump at the chance to go natural, but it isnt always viable. And you still want to express who you are so you have to compromise a little and use different methods.And this whole forum needs to start looking at a new word too - "compromise". This forum is called dreadlock forums. Perhaps, this place needs a major overhaul and become a natural dreadlock forum, because lets face it - that is what it is all based on.
