really? no physical evidence? how about the fact that 100% of the time when i ask "were they crocheted in the past" up to 3 years after being crocheted only 1 they say yes
now if you can clearly see the signs they were crocheted once..3 years after that is physical evidence of how long it takes to recover. its as much physical evidence as if you asked someone missing an eye "did you lose an eye in the past" ..it is completely obvious
I will have to qualify that with "if done tight' very loose extremely minimal crocheting does not always leave signs for 3 years
in fact extremely minimal use might luck out with only a few thousand broken hairs and the only visible sign being a drastic increase in frizz
there is no point at which it is no longer damaged ..a severed arm is severed forever a broken hairs broken forever
the damage is 100% permenant and irreversible the recovery I speak of is 6 months (typically) before any dreading can even begin, and 3 years to lose the stiffness that makes them hang weird and look so unnatural (not only from an organic point of view, but simply in how they don't hang and move the way natural hair would)
theres 2 ways to spot this 1 they curl inward around the face presumably because of how they are held while crocheting or 2 they are bone straight to the point that you never even see 2 dreads cross over eachother almost like you took a comb with teeth a dreads width apart and perfectly combed them every hour to keep every 1 in its place. they don't move or hang naturally
that is the only recovery possible its cosmetic it allows the hair to dread fine without constant work..the damage is done and cannot be undone
heres physical proof take a single hair make a loop pinch the 2 loose ends use the hook to try to pull it from your grasp.. 9 times out of 10 it breaks
Panterra caraway on here has been a true expert in the hair care industry (who i turn to when maintenance harms extreme and maybe beyond my ability to help) shes got 36 or more years experience in hair care..in the 70s they did tip frosting differently then they do now
a small tuft of hair would be pulled through small holes in a form with a crochet hook.. the reason it is no longer done, the gentle process of pulling hairs through a open hole broke too many hairs
point 2 a hair is 0.01mm the hook 100 times thicker then a hair and in a dread theres no room for a single hair to simply slide between any other hairs (or youd see light through them yes not even a proton can penetrate through without a hair being in the way) the hairs cannot simply move out of the way
and who spends 20 grand on dreads MOST PEOPLE WHO WANT MAINTAINED DREADS so you say 'theres a right way that's safe" AND YOU ALONE CAN DO IT? so you decide your more skilled then the so called pros who ARE WELL KNOWN TO DO EXTREME HARM?
people who go to salons because they think its safer then doing it themselves spend 20-40 grand before ending up bald.. the poor woman in that photo for instance must have spent 40 grand to get that severely screwed up
PHYSICS LESSON in order for a 1 mm hook to penetrate the dread 'carefully" without doing harm well.. try putting a 1 mm hook through your brain a few thousand times every couple months without fiber optics and even tinier devices that can move nerves and capillaries out of the way ..and be flexible enough to weave in and out of spaces to avoid damaging certain areas..now poking hairs breaks them that is established palm rolling does what? causes internal friction rubbing broken hairs against broken hairs ..many people say when they squeeze crocheted reads theres almost a 'squeaky feeling" (how they described it) you can feel the broken hairs grinding against each other in dreads never crocheted you don't get that, only soft sponginess. now THE FINAL PROOF OF THE DAMAGE YOUR DOING IS THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE if the hairs were pulled in why are they not staying in? you are just pulling in the hairs you broke the last time you did it..so a guy walks into a doctors office and says doctor eveeytime i push a needle through my arm it bleeds why am i losing so much blood when i push a needle through my arm everytime i get a scab?
THAT EXTRA FRIZZ YOU ARE TRYING TO CONTROL BY FORCE ALSO TAKES 3 YEARS TO RETURN TO NORMAL
YOUR NOT BIASED? you come on here being extremely aggressive and insulting calling everyone with REAL DREADS ugly cunts? YOU ACT LIKR YOUR WAY IS THE ONLY WAY cause everyone who didn't get fake looking poser dreads is an ugly cunt and disgusting? THIS IS REALLY YOUR DEFENCE?
THE ONLY REASON I AM LETTING YOU CONTINUE THIS IS SO YOUR FUTURE PATIENTS KNOW WHAT KIND OF PERSON YOU ARE
ok now this point is sooo fucking funny you made it for me.. you a dread virgin with 3 years experience doing things wrongt are here to tell me ..someone who not only had dreads since you were fucking born but lost my virginity while you were wearing diapers (maybe you losing your virginity while wearing diapers might explain why your so hate filled)
for longer then you been alive i had dreads for longer then you been in school i have helped an estimated 17 million people recover from the things you are doing wrong 20 hours a day i spend helping multiple people at a time ..i will be on the phone while typing and get 20 replies behind just when i stop to eat
its 6 fucking am and i'm already busy and helping people with dreads usually has me up till 5 every night.. AND 90% OF WHAT I NOW KNOW I LEARNED FROM SEEING PEOPLE LIKE YOU DO HORIBLE THINGS TO THEIR DREADS OVER AND OVER
however there is that 1 in 1000 rule ..the cognitive dissonance factor .. the factor that causes some special angry delusional retards like you to claim gravity is a lie and the earth is flat BECAUSE IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER TO IGNORE REALITY AND BELIEVE IN IRRATIONAL DELUSIONS
fourthly do you understand the word metaphor? a person being handed a phd without earning it is the same as someone buying dreads without taking the time to earn them.. the result being a piece of shit angry violent skinhead with dreads.. or the equivalent of a person with an iq of 7 who has a phd
you clearly are not intelligent enough to be a dr if such a simple metaphor hurts your head
where is your dedication your years of earning your dreads or did you walk into a shop and just get handed them?
NO DREADLOCKS ARE THE NATURAL STATE OF HAIR WHAT HAIR IS MEANT TO BE IN THE ABSENCE OF FORCING IT TO BE A HAIRSTYLE.
DREADLOCKS ARE NOT A HAIRSTYLE THEY ARE A LIFESTYLE until you understand that ..even on a very mundane level then you will not understand dreads and therefore do not deserve to walk around imitating something you clearly do not understand nor do you have even the slightest bit of respect for. every last person with dreads is now looking at you as a joke, and an insult and i can guarantee that if even 1 of them suffers from your anger and personality disorders they for sure would shave your head if they ever saw you on the street..millions of people use this site so its a real good thing that your ashamed of your dreads enough to not have shown your face (admin note: forceful cutting of dreads is assault by law, while I fully understand your overwhelming desire to shave this frauds head I cannot support any such actions)
GUESS AGAIN PSYCHO many of the members have met me ..my life is very public unfortunately.. i have WAY TOO MANY FRIENDS TO COUNT
when you search dreadlocks in most image searches my dreads come up more then once and often 1st
this photo taken at 18 years is so well known around the world i was temporarily removed from a fb group cause "this is a fake account that photo is all over google" she assumed I wasn't me cause my dreads were too well known
its funny you question if i even have dreads yet my dreads were the default profile picture which you must have known since you changed yours to 1 we havn't used in about 3 or 4 years
this is probably most recent photo
they are about 26 years old there I would guess that's older then you? you sure act like a alcoholic asshole kid ..probly daddy is paying for your school where you say your going to be a dr to please daddy while just being a drunk fool and trying to look cool with imitation dreads huh/
Who knows if I even have dreads? everyone I ever met, everyone who knows me. Which I am 100000000000000000000000000000000% certain is thousands of times more people then you ever met.
I know a few politicians and CEO''s know I have dreads.. In a funny way the fact you don't know I have dreads is profound proof of how little you know about dreads!
Again you missed a simple metaphor about cheating cutting corners not putting in the time needed to do things properly.
And you are damn right that is your last message. In fact if you weren't going to leave willingly I was going to remove ya.. Actually I am going to so you cannot delete this. Your ignorance and disrespect is now part of your permanent record.
27 years growing dreadlocks the natural way
My dreads are over 9 feet long
