too maintained looks horifying but unmaintained look beautiful
theres a softer look less harsh with hair on the head
like a mane
that was at 18 years
granted the greying hairs dont dread as short anymore
Thank you for welcoming me!
I wear uniform in my job and I personally don't like it when your hair at the top looks like you have normal loose hair and the rest is dreads. I use the crochet needle to put new grown hair in the dreads. I don't crochet the lengths of the dreads themself, no need to because they are mature enough.
So technically I crochet my dreads every few cm one single time.
dreads completely unmentained don't look appealing to me -as well as dreads too mentained.
but NEVER CROCHET!!!!! crochet causes extreme damage
1 use causes them to be visibly stiff for 3 years
1 use increases the ammount of frizz by 10 times due to all the thousands of broken hairs
you become a slave to fixing the damage you caused the last time
dreads dont need to be 'neat" especialy for jobs neatening them actualy eliminates your 1 and only legal defense

doing it only 2x a year at least is rational and sane but still very counterproductive and just less damaging and destructive then doing it more often
