Fight with traction alopecia. I need a help.
Help! Save My Dreads
good that you have stopped crocheting! Your hair needs to grow out at the roots. The longer and looser your hair get at the roots the less the sections will be seen. Let your hair grow and maybe wear it mostly open all the time? Pulling a ponytair very tight could also break hair and can also cause traction alopecia. Maybe wear a tam or something like that if you don't want to wear them down, but at least stop pulling them tight.
Recovery from crochet takes very long but i guess it's never too late doing it! Best wishes!
