That is understandable. I don't crochet the way people assume, or that most people do. My hair was soft yet felt dry. I used one shampoo that really dried out my hair and it helped them thicken and loop a lot. I ran out however, and can't remember the name. My hair stopped changing after that. I really don't like baking soda or acv. Are there any shampoos online some place you would recommend?
thank you for the advice. I thought I did enough research before I started them.. I've recently stopped going to salon, and haven't done anything to them. besides washing them, of course. what do you recommend to wash them with? I wish I started them the natural way :/ I do have a lot of frizz, not only on my roots but the whole dread.. because of the crocheting as well. I've learned my lesson, I just hope it's not too late to save them, and make them as healthy as can be..
Oh nono! Not tight at all! Simply pulling the hair through once and leaving it. My family is known for strong hair and not going bald! And I did not know it could cause itching? That had not happened in my first set other than the first week (I had really bad sectioning in the first set of dreads.)
My hair is healthy and it makes ZERO sense for you to suggest otherwise when you have never even seen it. You also don't know what my loc maintenance process is or even my hair texture... so we will have to agree to disagree. I understand that the free form dreading works for you and your hair type and that is wonderful. I on the other hand want my dreads to be more uniform, my job requires that I have a more polished and professional look. I guess you would call my method semi freeform locs, I tighten them once every 3 or 4 months and have done so for almost 10 years and my hair is long, strong and healthy! I think it is in very bad taste that you criticize individuals because they choose to maintain their locs in a manner other than what you choose. Live and Let Live Man!
Thank you for the concern about a crochet hook, but I brushed out my old locks and my hair was perfect. I used it in the way you would use a latch hook. Pulled in loose hair in one move and left them to their fun. No harm done!
Thanks so much for the beautiful Welcome! <3 I have been silently reading this site for over a year now so I thought it was time to finally join. Thank you for this site and for the helpful information that you share with those of us that are newbies on this dread journey <3 Peace & Blessings, Dear One ~
thanks for the welcome, soaring eagle. I back combed the first six of my liddle guys but after that, I felt terrible. I wasn't letting my hair do what it needed to do, dread naturally. so ive started the twist n rip method on the rest of my hair three days ago and im already so in love with the natural texture and feel of my hair. thanks so much for the advice!
Thank you very much. I work in a corporate setting and the unraveling looks like I am having a bad hair day. But I am going to do as you say and just let time take its course. Thank you again. This is a real journey but I am going to see it through.
