So i went and got crocheted before doing my research :( Only since finding these pages have i become aware of the mistake i've made. I thought i was doing the right thing by using no chemicals or wax. Anyway, My question now is what can i do to recover, or just do nothing ? Let them be and see what happens ? They are only a week old (see my pics) and have been washed once with Tea Tree shampoo, Is there a better shampoo that will help them lock up ? At the moment they are really soft and fluffy, frizzy with loose ends. Thanks in advance :)

what teatree shampoo? just cause itsd got teartree dont mean its any goodf for dxreads

your in luck they dont look crochetted to hell  they arent too tight tho the extra fuzziness is from broken hairs from crochet

sinde they arent so extremely tight like crochet dreads can be no need to condition to speed recovery just wash and seperate and thats it

u can use the baking soda dr bronners or soaps  or theres alotta other options but  chances are what your usings not that great
