Mine are still shrinking even though I am well into my second year.
interlocking and crochet are extremely vbad u dont have dreads u have woven hair when u stop weaving them it will take 6 months to a year b4 they beghin to dread ..and whenu actualy dread they shrink
it is an extremely damaging method rthey are not healthy they are damaged by breaking hairs
i have felt very welcomed to this community. if you look around a little you will realize the entire site is devoted to natural dreads and is very anti-crochet hook and use of products. i will gladly take soaring eagles advice (21 years in the making) over someone whos dreads arent even mature yet. no disrespect intended towards you dear, but being rude to soaring eagle is a really bad idea. its his website.
just trying to help her not screw up hrr dreads with crochet i mean how many have suffered from crochet already?
how many started over?
but some ppl when u try to help em they get angry..i dont get it 99% say oh thank god finaly somebiody told me the truth.. 1% get angry
cant please em all
I'm not angry, I'm just surprised. Of course many have suffered from crochet. I am constantly finding information and videos about crochet use that are AWFUL and SCARY, don't understand why people would do that to their hair, obviously it will fall out. But if done correctly the result, in my opinion, is quite beautiful and healthy.
I'm also surprised that people need advice in order to 'do nothing.'
oh also when I said mine didn't shrink, I meant after I locked them up, they didn't shrink much, but initially my dreads were half the length of what my hair was before.
Mine were also made with crochet hook, didn't do anything withing 4 1/2 months (since i got them) and they have gone from halfway my back to above my shoulders. They also grow but they seem to shrink faster.
