i can't believe I haven't commented on here yet! (or did I miss it??) Really awesome! And they've come a long way in a year+! And this is a good timeline to follow too. I also have the thin dreads. The certainly do thicken up, but I'll be curious to see if mine get quite as thick as yours. Have you done any congos?? I have two dreads right now that I am contemplating let grow together. Maybe it's not a congo in the traditional sense (two mature dreads joining at the root), but they are still significant enough to be considered two distinguished dreads matting together. Anyhoo, Really cool! :)

Should I be worried?


Help! Save My Dreads

logged in just to post on this thread. Those loops and bumps ARE awesome!!! I've finally got some of those going. Someone told me yesterday I could palmroll them out. Whaaat??!!! I wasn't even asking. I'm telling them that I really like the character too and have waited a year to see this happen! :D

So yeah, nice set! I wouldn't do a thing! :)

Introduce Yourself

I was mostly just making a bad joke about splitting hairs. get it?? yeah, it kind of flopped! :P

ok, seriously now. That was well stated. and I'm like 99.9% with ya. In most cases, I would say absolutely do not use the hook. It DOES ruin dreads and should not be used to "fix" dreads (I had an issue with a strand of hair I needed to go into one dread and not the other and I just pulled that through. Actually, I didn't even use the hook for that, i used a needle! but i suppose that might do similar damage? i don't know. ). Anyway, I'll just leave it at that. no more "splitting hairs" ;) (was that better?? :D)  Take care, SE!

p.s. I just re-read the home page, so ok. I respect that.

for every loose strand you tuck in you break  enough hairs to cause a new loose strand to pop out..just never let a crochet hook touch your dreads..ever

I really, absolutely, don't want to make trouble here or confuse fireboltrider...so the following here is just me being, as the Brits say, cheeky, but also my HUMBLE, but personal observations.

So I mean, don't you break hairs every time you separate dreads as well?? To me, it seems the occasional tucking in is not as detrimental as some make it sound. I mean, some folks do this maintenance quite often, right! Yes, they might be stiff, but they aren't ruined necessarily. <-that's the cheeky part. We're just "splitting hairs" here SE! And I know you have waaaaay more experience than me. So no disrespect!

Because I do agree, avoiding the hook is best. And I can attest to those broken hairs popping out of mine (like a beard stubble, though they are softening finally). I did however, loosen my crocheted dreads (not completely remove though and this is referring to fireboltrider's profile post/question) because I didn't want to wait for them to loosen/lose the stiffness, and i gotta say, I am happy with mine. Did lose a lot of hair, even with just taking out the ends and the loosening, but there is still significant hair left. 

Ohh, I'm probably all wrong, but it seemed like mine were getting harder/stiffer...oh, and I had residue, so I guess I had no choice! 

So yes, if they can be left alone, leave em be. And just the occasional tuck (like if a hair is sticking out sideways. in my experience, I only felt I ONCE needed a tuck!), then hook is ok. BUT Generally, leave the hook and go natural. It's nature's work of art!
