so i recently got dreads via the crochet method, done by a professional not myself or friend. i am quite happy with the results. they were very tight at first but after a few days loosened up and after 3 weeks dont stick out much, just a little bit. i asked for whispy ends which i got ( a lil longer than i wanted about 3 inches of undreaded hair) anyway, the internet seems to be only full of how to videos or people saying they hate crochet method or love it but i have other questions:
although i, as some people would say cheated, will they if i get no more crocheting done lock up normally if left alone?
i am supposed to go in for a maintenance 1 month after getting them but i feel im being led down a path i dont really want.
i wanted to get them started then let them do their own thing not have a regular appointment so they would look immaculate. i dont want tight roots where you can see the sections, i like the slightly (scruffy) look, whilst still being tidy.
question is am i screwed do i have to start over or if left will they do their own thing and knot up by themselves, also, should i get her to crochet the 2-3 inches of undreaded hair or will that knot itself up too?
thanks for any replies, im really stressing!
