Sixth Update (17 july 2017)
I've done it for a year before but I cut my hair.. it was a mistake but things happen for some reason I guess.... either way I'm back to free form!
I'm either 3 or 4 months in, my pictures are not labeled by months :\ and I did not take pictures in the beginning...
but they're like 1 to 2 weeks apart from eachother
Here I was probably 1 month in or maybe less

Don't go to her, what she said makes no sense, making them smaller at the top? she over crocheted your hair and filled your hair with rubber bands, charged you 100$... let your hair rest and don't go to her she's just going to stress you even more... also when you told her if she can twist it instead I'm sure she's going to twist and wax instead of twist &rip, meaning she'll be twisting your hair to the max and waxing it... don't go to her, that's my advice
take the rubbers out as they're making it harder for the hair to be well, since they're maintaining it in the same place.. also your hair was very short, she just wanted your money, if you paid I guess, either way she treated you bad, she did the dreads knowing your hair was very short to maintain a method and filled it with rubber bands to keep it together.... again i really recommend to take the rubber bands out and undo the "dreads" or let them stay idk, wait for souring eagle opinion on that, but me , I'd undo them and let them go natural, or if you're very inclined, i'd wait for full recovery (no pain!! no itching and a while after that...) and do t&r gently by myself or a friend after showing him what to do...
crochet is really bad for your hair as soaring eagle said, take the rubber bands off and let the hair rest! either leave them like that , no maintenace no nothing, just let them do their thing or try to undo them and go natural or after full recovery t&r when your hair is longer, but natural just makes the best dreads in my opinion, and crochet makes the worst fake looking dreads... especially when maintainedd, either way, did she use wax too? i'd defenitely undo them and wash well, and let recovery do it's thing, but let's wait for soaring eagle input I'm sure he's way more experiencied if she used wax, like in terms of knowing what to do
