Advice given because I / we care
I just read a post by another member who ranted in part about the advice given on what not to do when growing dreadlocks. Through years of knowledge, members will share the dangers of certain methods. Why do we give a shit??? Because we care, because we want you to be able to grow your dreads for life if you so choose to. You don't have to take any advice given, make your own decision for your own journey.
I am 100% against crochet hooks, YET, I created a group for those of you who choose to do so. Some of you don't have the patience to wait, and that's okay, your hair...some of you only want to grow dreads for a couple of years or so and don't want to wait 1-2 years for them to mature, I totally understand. For those of you who crochet, share your pics, tips etc with others who share the same technique: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/group/crochet-group
I would never add extensions to my own hair (for spiritual reasons), YET, I also started a group for members to give each other how to tips, maintenance tips and for sharing their photos. I have no tips to give on these, but they were made with you in mind, so contribute if you can: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/group/extenstions-group
I guess I should end this now, but what I was trying to get at when I started was that I / we are not trying to be mean, or to insult, I / we only have your best interest at heart, we want you to make an educated decision before you do something or continue to do something. Maybe you did not know of any future problems, maybe you do, I / we don't know that. Just be thankful we care and make your own decisions.
