Welcome. We can definitely help you. The first thing to know is not to crochet again, as you've already heard. Crocheting will only damage your hair and prevent locking from actually happening. if you leave them alone, they will mature much faster and healthier
welcome but the crochet hooks 1 of the worse things u can do to dreads it causes extreme damage and 1 use will delay any dreading by 6 months and can take a year to lose the harsh crocheted look
throw away the hook so your never tempted to use it again if your cousins a hooker (not prostitute crochet hooker lol) convince him/her to throw it away b4 his/her dreads breakoff
its really horible dread abuse
Sorry, meant to say if left alone, within those 6 months they will be sucked back into the dread and tidy up
Welcome to the community Yamaira and greetings to Puerto Rico! I see that you started yours with the crochet method. That gives you instant dreads, but if you keep maintaining them that way, they will not last for years and years. Each time the hook is used, it breaks the hairs into many many pieces, the the strength of the dread is lost. If it is just a style for now, then go with it. If you want your dreads for a lifetime or many years to come, then don't crochet any more. If you decide to stop, the repair will take about 6 months to happen, then they will start to mature all on their own. You will see broken hairs start to poke out the your dreads, but if left along, within those 6 months they will be sucked into the dread and tidy up.
So now how do you maintain them? Wash 2-3 times a week, dreads love clean hair and scalp. Separate any sections by hand that are trying to join onto one another....and that is all, nothing else required...
Did you use any wax at all??
They do look lovely on you, welcome to dreadlocks.....peace
