About 7 months or so I don't think I went over a year.  I'd have never got rid of them if it weren't for the wax, cut them all out... I really couldn't stand the smell of the wax I know that's awful as it was natural but I found it quite strong it was Knotty boy.  Probably used too much too it was before they had different colours & I remember having a hard time sometimes getting it to work in...  :/   Awful for sure... eekers....  I added a picture I'd love to hear whether you think I stand a half chance of it taking shape from here or if I should totally abandon & brush them out...   I'd rather leave them as my littley worked his little fingers off making beads & stuff & seemed really sad when I said I was going to start over...  owww...

Yes & of course like i've read 100 X or more in posts on here I too wish I'd just done them natural I honestly had  no idea that they could be so great in just a year ...  I was tempted to brush out today & start over but my son got upset & said I must leave them... so we will just see where I go from here.. I only found your site after washing lightly and them getting loose a bit so googled I was upset with all the time wasted backcombing only to find out I shouldn't have spent any time at all & just let them go on their own....  I have crochet hooks in the mail they will just go into my sewing drawer now...  so you still saved me!!!  Thank you to your site.

Thanks for the welcome!!
They weren't done too tight and started laying down after the first four days. I regret crocheting but my hair seems to be doing just fine at the moment, but we will see. As you know I have a long way to go!

Have a great day/night.

I just read your message to Dani about not palm rolling. I've had my dreads (crochet recovery) for four weeks and suddenly they're exploding all over with bumps.  Will they carry on getting irreversibly bumpier and bumpier or will it calm down at some stage.  Haven't done any palm rolling at all.  Thank you for helping.

I didn't realize that palm rolling could damage :/good to know I only do it after I wash the babies because they tighten up so much whats the best way to form them so I don't get beaver paddles ❓❔

Hey! I'm doing great! It's been a long time! We got rid of internet for a while. I will post an update on my dreads some time this week. How are you doing?!

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!
