Why are dreadsocks bad?

When I first joined the forum I was told to stop wearing my dreadsock at night, but I'm curious to why? I've looked everywhere I could online but nothing comes up about cons to them. It makes it easier for me to sleep at night but I don't want to damage my dreads, it seems to be just as tight as my Tam so I don't understand why it would be an issue.

leaving them loose at night is when most dreading happens.  

how long are they just flip them up or use em as a pillow

They're about 12-15 inches, and the front rows always seems to want to be in front of my face, using them as a pillow makes my head face itch too because of the texture, i also have a silk like pillow I've been using for years so that's what I'm used to feeling.

They were last crocheted I think around the beginning of July and we're done once or twice before that as well. But right now they do not look crocheted at all, and they're super frizzy.

What do you mean by stiff? Like when I run my fingers through them they all bend and move, none of them stay straight, the texture is a bit scratchy in some places, but it feels about the same as it did when my hair would knot up before I dreaded it.

crochet dreads tend to be visibly stiff either way too straight, or curling forwards around the face (depends on who maintained them) they don't hang like normal hEchte_dreads_na_2_maandenzijkant.jpgair 

notice how stiff they are they don't hang normally

the scratchiness would be from the broken hairs making them feel like steel wool and itchy

I actually like dreads that look stiff, cause when doing different styles with them, like how trippie redd puts his hair up, it actually like sticks up and looks kinda like spikes, and that's about the style I wanted once they mature.
