I have a whole head of loops. My dreads are only about 3 months old and so I have gently pulled a few of the bigger ones back on itself with the use of a crochet hook but only gently making sure that no hair breaks. and am using peyotestitches in some others but for the most part my dreads are super loopy and crazy.

u cant make sure no hair breaks cause if u use rthe hook..hair breaks theres no physu[=ical way to avoid it u shouldnt ever those p[]loops will go away on thie r own harmlessly

if you hear hair breaking your breaking at least 15-20 at a time for it to be audu[ible a single hair breaking or even 5 or 6 u cant hear

every single time the crochet hook passes through a dread..hairs aee broken theres just no way it can pass through harmlessly

you really dont need to control them but if u must a wrap or bead or sleeves harmles

a hook isnt

Okay. I didn't know that. I thought if I wasn't hearing hair breaking I wasn't doing any damage. I will stopimmediately. I actually just saw a pic of another person who said their's looked the same way early on and you can't even tell now that it is mature. That is all I really want because I was worried they would look like that forever if I didn't do something about it now.

stop interlocking ofcourse they are splitting and doing weird things cause you are splitting them and doing weird things to them

almost every dread problem is fixed by stopping doing what your doing

they will absolutely dread without interlocking idf u stop using salin brand shampoos made to make hair "managable" wich is code for keeps you from having dreadlocks its funny how much efforts put into making hair managable when dreads are nmanagable by doing literaly nothing

we'll set u up with a great dread soap and wash routine and then u just give em time ti o heal and dread

Mine are almost at a year now, and I'm actually kind of sad because a lot of the loops and zig zags are going away as they become mature. :( I loved the loopy stage!

exactly what i tell everyone who tries to force loops to go away...your gonna miss them when they are gone

mature is overrated wild and crazy teen stages are so much fun

Hello i'mShannon

so i have been dreading up since September 2012 and i'm about 4 months in so far. my dreads are getting very loopy and many zig zags. I have been reading this is a good sign so i'm just letting my dreads do what they want and I love them. I'll add some pics of my dreads and I'd love to know what people think of them and if they are moving in the right direction. The roots are still little looser then then the middle but i heard the takes time same with the tips right??
