Hi guys, 

I'm new to all this and at 43, old lol!! Anyway, I had human hair dreadlock extensions a few months ago and overall, I'm pretty pleased with them.  However, my question is, do I need to keep up with the maintenance?  My own hair was not dreadlocked before the extensions where crochet hooked into my own hair btw.  What is the worst scenario if I do nothing?

Thanks all Wink

crochet absolutely destroys dreads  stop the crochet its horible for drads..its drad abuse

alzso most people hate extensions and chop them off

crocht will make them dread way slower and be extremely stiff and damaged, recovery from crochet causes way more frizzz from all the broken hairs

 the worse thing that will happen is thy will not be more and mor e dammaged from the so called maintenance

by all means neer crochet again

Thanks @soaring-eagle :)

So, am I right in thinking that if I just leave them alone, they will still dread? :)

sure will

in fact if all you did was stopped combing they would have dreaded  but if the crochets tight they will dread very slowly thats why light conditioning to loosen them up is recommeded

however.. extensions are not  recommended on young dreads that are not mature enough to support them. if they are loose enough to dread the extensions might not stay on long

That's awesome! Thank you so much for your help. I'll continue to let them 'run free' and see what happens :) Thanks again :)  Btw, what shampoo do you recommend?

Use the liquid for dreads under 1 year.

Use the bar for mature dreads.

Gutted, you guys are in the US, I am in the UK and that means shipping is expensive :(

Do you have any other suggestions in terms of shampoo? :)
