My dreads are only about 6 days old so maybe this is somewhat normal at this stage but they are very stiff. I think it's because I got them crocheted and now they are so tight they can't move naturally. Is there anything I can do?

Here's a pic from the day they were done. They still stick up like that. Oh, and FYI, I didn't use any wax so that is not the culprit.

its all crochet and yea thats a huge reason not to crochet
just leave em to naturalize it will take time
wash lil extra often to loosen em
use aloe or jojoba or cocoa butter or something (even olive oil) to soften and loosen em
spank whoever recomended or did crochet
and warn others not to crochet
especialy silly youtubers

it can take awhile to recover from crochet
and they can fuzz out to an extreme in the process
just resist the urge to fix em they'll get better in time
from here on out u should try to go as natural as can be
I've been making a point of shakin' em out and sleeping with them down to try to loosen them out.

I was considering doing a rosemary wash to prevent any bad itching as well. Should I also use the aloe or jojoba?

Just stop everything, I had the same problem. Just wash and separate, I promise they'll loosen up after a month or 2.
I'm definitely going to need to read that a few times over the next few months! Right now I'm just trying to sort through 48 dreads for all the string. Then I'm going to have a relaxing rosemary bath to help my dreads chill out :-)
