Wow, just looked at your photos and thought to myself I can't wait until my dreadies look like hers. When I started my dreads my hair was the same mid-back.
Welcome. Palm rolling only does 1 of 2 things, though. It will either do nothing because you aren't doing it enough, and you won't see any lasting knots. Or, if you do see lasting knots, you are doing it too much, and you will be destroying your roots, probably beyond repair. Check out my video to see what only 2 weeks of palm rolling did. 6 years later, I am still trying to fix the damage
welcome but dont bother palm rolling
it does nothing
but if u do it alot it can be quirte harmful
Welcome. Dreadlocks can't be "made". They have to be grown. It takes months and years to grow healthy mature, locks. Not hours.
Crochet hooks do nothing but destroy locks. It breaks hairs into smaller and smaller pieces, which weakens locks and makes them prone to snapping off at places,and even falling out at the roots.
Plus, people with locks shouldn't look like they are going bald in between their locks. If you can see scalp showing between locks, that's a sing of Traction Alpoecia: a condition that leads directly to baldness if you don't stop pulling hairs too tightly
