Welcome. The first time going natural probably turned out like that because you didn't separate enough. That'll do it.
As for crocheting... It's worse than wax. Eagle's right. Crocheting breaks hairs into smaller and smaller pieces every time it passes through your lock. It weakens your locks and can cause them to snap off in places, and even at the root leaving a bald spot.
Welcome and Happy Dreading.
u gotta stop everything yoiur doing crochets just destroying them
lock peppa is dirt yoiur paying to add dirt and flakes to your hair
just wash use wax b gone and leave em alone no more crochet it will take 6 months to wellover a year to recover from the crochet u did already
welcvome but crochets worse then wax and lock peppa does nothuing at all
jamaican gel is for african hair only definately dont use it
its up to u wether or not you go natural tnr or backcomb but ill say naturals the best way tnr next best backcomb barely makes it out of the never recomended category its damaging but nowhere near as bad as say crochet or felting
the best way is to just ler t them dread but nit everyones willing to do that so tnr is a good compromise
its gentle enough and work swell
i guarantee you wont fail this time
Welcome. I hope you learned from those tries that wax doesn't work. The gel's not even necessary. The only one we've found that doesn't damage locks is from dreadlockshampoo.com. It washes out in plain water and doesn't leave any residue that other gels leave. I hope this set lasts longer than the others. Out of curiosity, why did you start over so many times?
Welcome, Please read the Dreaducation section and happy dreading.
srry didnt mean to come off as a jerk just seeing all those waxes in sa row and not a set lasting over 2 or 3 years oh wait 1 might have lasted 5.. but wax dreads rarely last past that 3 or 4 years ..wax is the number 1 dread killer its a scam really
yoir hair dreads best with nothing at all in it
wax actualy prevents dreading it only glues it together to look like dreds (stiff sticky dreads) they dread way bettger and faster by just washing and nothing else
last a lifetime too
stop using the gel (unless its from www.dreadlockshampoo.com onoy gel worthwhile..but..u most likely dont need it)
use nothing..no backcombing eother
let them dread
wow welcome but um why didnt you learn your lesson that wax is a dread killer after 5 sets>/
why would u use wax in natural dreads? that dont make sence
what gel did u use?
dont ya know u need nothing? and nothing is the best thingto use...and do?
u coulda had dreads like these if u avoided all products
