Welcome. Hopefully you didn't use their wax or kit. But crocheting is actually worse than wax. The only thing worse than crocheting is felting.
All a crochet hook does is shreds your hair. With every pass of the hook, you rip your hairs into smaller and smaller pieces. This severely weakens your locks. Eventually they can get so weak that they can't support their own weight, and a slight tug can snap one in half.
Unfortunately, there is no "safe" way to crochet. Those hooks are just not designed for hair. That's why you don't see them sold at salons. They are sold at art supply stores near the yarn. Yarn is thick and strong. And you grab the entire piece with the hook. When you stick it into a lock, you don't grab every strand, you clip some of them, which rips them. And even the ones that you do grab aren't strong enough to take the tug of pulling the hook back out. So they rip, too.
In the end, even 1 session with a crochet hook delays progress by about 6 months. Multiple session can delay progress by up to a year. In a year, you don't want to be where you could have been in a few months by just going naturally
HI WELCOME TO DREADLOCKSSITE omg no knotty boy stuff! crocet o heading for disaster arn to ya haha im sure the well decades of experience curator SE has already informed these concerns peace an luv
welcome but the crochet hooks 1 of the worse things u can do to dreads
it causes extreme harm and use it just once and it delays progrss by 6 months use it more and it can take well over a year to recover
also...most dreads will recomend u boycott knottyboy since they profit from destroying dreads
they arent as evil as dreadheadhq2 but still they destroy tends of thousands of dreds with wax so till they stop they should be boycotted
Welcome. When you blow dry, make sure to only use the cool setting. The hot setting will cause heat damage to your hair and make it weak and brittle
