Welcome. Like Eagle said, the maintenance you are doing will only destroy your hair. Crocheting does nothing but rips your hair into smaller and smaller pieces. This makes the weak, overly tight, and stiff. Locks should never be hard, no matter how mature they are. Crocheting also leads to locks snapping off at places, even at the root leaving a bald spot.
Palm rolling randomly does nothing but make your locks look neat for a few hours. No lasting knots will form, ever. if you do it often enough, or hard enough to see knots form, you are on your way to irrevocably destroying your locks.
Root rubbing is just as damaging. It rips hairs out of your scalp. This makes your roots thinner and weaker. And as the new hair grows in, it never catches up to the spot where it was ripped out. So you end up with locks that are chock full of weak spots. A nice tug could rip right through one of those spots.
Welcome and Happy Dreading.

weelcome but u dshould nbot be crocheting palm riolling ort root rubbing
crochets tghe worse it brereaks hasirs into smaller and smaller peoices
root rubbing wil pulkl hair right out ofthre roots and 1/2 youir hairs wont be connected to the head
palm rolling does nothing
if you ddo it enough to do desomething it can be pretty harmful
all you should do is wash
nothing else at all
palm rollings pretty pointles do it a lil it does nothing well nothing that lasts more then a few hours or a day at most
do it enough to try to do something permenant and can cause permenant harm weakened roots friction/heat damage etc
all dreads require is wash9=ing and seperating and nothing else at all
Welcome. Latch hooking is only slightly better than crocheting (Which is the worst thing for locks). But any time you stick a needle/hook through your locks, it does tremendous amounts of damage. If you are trying to clean up your roots, stop. The loose frizzy hair at your roots needs to be there to help tangle with new growth and pull loose hairs into your locks. If you tighten that hair, it will thin out your locks and make them weaker and weaker
