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