Used crochet method... what should I do now?
First of all, hey everyone
This looks like a really nice dreadhead community, hope to get some help from you guys!So here goes my story...I got dreads with a mix of the backcombing and the crochet method on Saturday 4th, just 3 days ago. Mostly crochet was used. They looked fairly nice to me at the beggining, but I found this website today and read so many bad comments on those methods that now I'm concerned about how my dreads will turn out...I always aimed for a natural approach to dreadlocks, I mean, I didnt want wax or anything else on my hair. I had the idea that if it was natural then it was gonna turn out good. And "natural" just meant to me "no products involved", thats why I went with the crochet. "Neglect" seemed like a long time to wait, or at least thats the idea I got from the stuff I read on the internet.Well, so I already have my "crocheted dreads". I dont wanna cut them off or anything, but I would like to go natural from now on. What should I do? Just let them be from now on? Any special advice?My most urgent concern right now is... itchy!!! The guy that made the crochet job told me not to wash my hair in at least 2 weeks. But just 3 days after, Im looking at some dandruff on my scalp and really can't stand the itchyness no longer. So, should I wash them? No no, wait. Im TOTALLY washing them. The question is: How should I wash them not to ruin my newly crocheted dreads?Hope to get some support from this wonderful site. Thank y'all!
