Need advice on how to add more dreads to my existing dreadlocks. I have 35 thin ones and want 45-50 more if possible

I know you hate crocheting...but it was so addicting for the first 4 months. I have currently stopped crocheting for about a month now :P No more I :gr_125 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_disable_anim_appear Style multiReplace" id="125" data-gr-id="125">promise :P

good and yea i have seen people get extremely addicted to it to the point of having to run their dreads through a sewing machine to sew the back together

hope you didn't over do it too much

but you can see how much space there is between dreads   those dreads will eventually thicken and new ones fill in the gaps

yea took a closer look at the  photo from the back you see how much bigger the sections are then the dreads? if you didn't crochet  the dreads would be about the section size once mature

I am pretty new to all this...are you able to expand further on :gr_56 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_disable_anim_appear Punctuation only-ins replaceWithoutSep" id="56" data-gr-id="56">that please? 

They were formed with backcombing, rip and twist and crochet

yes

i started out with about 75 most real thin 1 or 2 thick

over the years that  became closer to 200 (kept losing count)

when you separate you get loose hairs between dreads that become new dreads. they can either grow into existing dreads and be absorbed or kept separate

you can later let them combine and thicken as i stopped separating almost completely years ago i am likely back down to 50 or 40 even ..who knows maybe less

hard to say since new dreads pop up every few weeks

oh

you crocheted! crochet is extremely bad for dreads and makes them extra thin  because it makes them way too tight (and severely damaged)

unfortunately crochet recovery can take a rather long time! they will thicken up to probably 3 times the size they are now but that can take years

however if you just leave them alone  they will thicken and new dreads will appear all the time

you keep them from growing together by separating them(pull them apart after washing)  when you pull them apart  you get loose hairs between dreads that forms new dreads.

whatever hairs there that you'd be able to attach dreads to will just become dreads

but since you crocheted and likely maintained the roots theres just nothing there to attach anything to.

all the hairs that would become new dreads were forced into existing dreads.

since theres nothing to attach them to other then to the roots of existing dreads they would already be combined into thicker dreads

so i would just toss that hook in the trash and  give them tome to recover and new  baby dreads will appear over time

as you separate new dreads will form the numbers will change all the time

how were they started?

Listerine for cleaning dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

like i said in other threads, i used it once on my scalp then to prove how well it worked to a germaphobe friend drank the rinse water out of the dread (sucked it out) 4 feet down from my scalp and it tasted pure perfectly filtered and better then  the water in this house ever tasted (i only drink it filtered and usually add a lil touch  of something  to take the dirty taste out of the water) but after washing my scalp with it  the water in bmy dread 4 feet down tasted cleaner  then straight from the tap

so to me that says it works throighout
