Hair Last Week
hmm well the crochet has made em look weird in a way they will recover
but crochet recovery takes a long long time
your hairs actualy very perfect for natural dreading as long as u keep it from becomming a dread helmet
i think either way u go they'll turn out fine
id recomend trying to loosen em up some so they can dread right instead of cutting and starting over
but in the end whatever u think u should do u shoulddo
I use the same cream/moisturizer I use after my bath on my hair. I also brush my dreads daily with a super soft brush. Good luck!
I woke up one day, a few years into having my dreads, and just wanted to brush my hair. I missed the stimulation to my scalp. At first I used a regular hair brush but noticed more hair than I wanted, ended up in the brush! So I treated myself to a silver backed super soft brush (with matching silver back mirror, of course!) and began to brush my dreads. I try not to brush toward the scalp if my scalp is dry because moisturizer keeps the hair close the scalp from breaking. I make my own moisturizer for hair and body and have eliminated both a dry scalp and dry skin (took a lot of experimenting to get it right). If I moisturize my scalp, it last about two days, if I don't wash my hair (by the way, I don't wash my dreads every day). I've had a lot of people ask about the moisturizer and can send a sample if you like, just need postage. Twice a year I cut my hair to even it out: in the Fall and Spring, never the dog days of August (old wives tale)!
