HiI went to a loctician and they crocheted/backombed my hair and added some extensions. They told me to come back in every 6 month for maintenance. Since ididnt't like the idea to go for a routine maintenance i wanted to ask you what can i do myslf at home instead of going to a locticianI am pam rolling and clockwise rubbing thats all. I have very thin roots.

stop everything your doing palm rolling and clockwise rubbing are both bad for the dreads especially the rubbing

but the crochet was the worse mistake well no the loctician was the worse mistaker

u need to recover from a bad start

wash with a dread shampoo every few days

do nothing at all except seperate if they try to grow together

it will take 6 months to even start to dread because of the crochet mistake never ever hgo back

it will take up to 3 years to lose the crocheted look and stiffness
the circular rubbing will pull most of the hair right out of the scaklp

post pics so we can see what was done and advice from there especialy of the roots

Read the dreaducation page. It will tell you everything you need to know. Whatever method you choose, you should know the jigh risks and also the benefits of going natural. You've already started with a method that poses many risks and alot of damage. So read read read is my advice to you
