Dreads "killed" by crocheting - how to save them?
Help! Save My Dreads
Hi to everyone,
At first I have to mention that my English isn't that good....
It's wonderful that I found this site - but I think it is nearly too late^^.10 days ago someone made me dreads with the backcombing and crocheting method. I haven't known it would ruin my hair...
My dreads feel very stiff now and I'm worried about the coming locking process. Will my crocheted dreads will lock one day if I leave them by now?
Or should I comb them out and make a new beginning?
I wouldn't like to restart them :/ I hope time will fix my dreads.... I promised them that I never would use a crochet hook or comb again
So my question is:
Will they recover by leaving them? (Just washing with baking soda and apple vinegar and let them rest in peace...)
The photos are day 10 (after washing with baking soda) Before washing they were much more stiff....Now they feel a bit more natural^^
And this is a photo of an older dread (2 years) .It's stiff as steel. But has never seen a crochet hook...Do you have an idea how to get it softer?
I just want some beautiful and natural looking dreads in the future and I hope they will recover by itself....with the help of time.
