If You Ever Used the Crochet Method


Dreading Methods

You're being oversensitive, friend. No one can attack you over the magical interweb. Oh, and -- please -- learn proper grammar before being a supremacist. You're making yourself look childish to those who do understand the syntax of the English language.

Now, on the subject of crocheting, try to understand that with diversity comes differing opinions (e.g., not everyone who disagrees with you is attacking you). Soaring Eagle may come off as pushy to the meek, but all in all he is trying to help you. He's seen several cases of crocheting causing the breaking of hairs, which leads to further crocheting -- in most cases, due to the paranoia (or vanity) of the individual. I advise you consider that a few loose hairs will not make you a freak of society. No one will notice, or even care. If you feel so compelled to crochet your hair, then do so. No one is holding your hand, and no one will stop you. Remember: arguments are two-sided. If someone disagrees, you don't have to argue. Thank you.

Now, about the "poor little follicles" you so like to belittle, consider that others have different views (again, diversity). To many here, dreadlocks are spiritual, as is the journey. Let's try not to be guilty of what we lambaste (e.g., let's try not to attack others when we so strongly criticize the attacking). Let us also try to see through the eyes of those who might consider hair differently.

Call this post an attack if you will. I'm willing to be the bad guy "attacking" you over the internet if it might teach you something, as unlikely as that may be.

That's totally a personal attack. Saying that correct spelling and language are not important is pretty much the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard...but I'm going to allow you that opinion. I'm a big fan of Skill teacher, dude's a stud. Where's this video of falling off crocheted dreads? I'd really like to see it. There's one thing to remember here, about all this "damage" to hair talk...it's just hair. It doesn't feel pain and it grows back, so let's not get too wrapped up in what we're doing to our poor little follicles.

kinda wool beenie


Dreading Methods

I stopped wearing hats and bandannas four days ago and I've seen super-fast progress since. Letting it go free seems best for me, but I have super-curly hair that begged to dread before I even decided to.

Eseential oils, which do what?


Introduce Yourself

I would go with the company mountain rose herbs. They're one of the few (out of hundreds) that sell true 100% non-diluted essential oils. I suggest avoiding NOW brand oils out of all of them. They like to use imitation species of the plants and their supplier dilutes the oils so much that it's a joke. Might as well pay the shipping to get it from a company that gives you real plant oils, right?

We need a "My hair won't naturally dread" support group!


Dreading Methods

Er, neglect actually does work for everyone. There's no hair out there that undoes its own knots. Well, maybe there is magic hair like that :O. Tell me if you find some.

PS: Wait longer than weeks to expect dreads. For some, months is what it takes. For many, a year. For some, 2 years. I think 3 years is a safe bet for ANY hair (even magic).
