How can i grow my dreadlocks from crochet to natural. Ive been crocheting for 3 weeks now, but not often. My dreads is about 2 months old. I have a straight hair before so i started my dreadlocks using a hook. Can you give me tips guys how will i grow my dreadlocks in the natural way. I havent use any wax or any on my locs. . i really need help cuz im worried my locs get worst. .im really new to this.

Read the FAQ (link at the top of the site)... all the info you need is in there.

"Separate" means gently ripping your dreads apart at the roots IF they are starting to growing together (forming congos).

Your hair will dread just fine once you stop crocheting. Straight hair (or any hair type) doesn't need "help" to dread by crocheting or waxing etc... just keep it clean and it will dread by itself.
im sorry but i didnt get this one. . I need to rip off the roots of my dreadlocks?

i got newer locks, but ive read alot on the forums, and blunted dreads is a matter of preference, so you dont have to do anything to them if you like the look. Some prefer unblunted so water will drain easierNew hair dont worry about, it will eventually attach itself to existing dreads or create their own.And they dread by simply moving around and making knots.

Just don't touch them. All that palm rolling nonsense is b/s.And don't rip off the roots lmao. I think you read that a little too quickly.You separate the dreadlocks AT the root when they start to pull into each other.
