Introduce Yourself

I get all that spiritual stuff and stuff, I just don't see why the animosity between between people who don't do things the way you believe it should be done?

Free form or crochet, they're dreads. Everyone has different hair types so they're going to look different dependant on the person regardless of how their dreads are formed. Like I said the end result is the same,sectioned,rope-like hair.

It's not about "respecting real dreads" though is it. There's people out there who can't grow much hair be it genetic or after treatment so it gives them an option if they wanted it.

Definately won't be starting over. Just 13 hours over 3 days to start these off.

She's definitely good with the hook,even sells her own synths.

I'm not bothered about them being "protected", like I've said, I've just done them because I could.


I don't know why there's this toxicity between free-form and crochet, the end product is the same regardless.

They're not stiff at all, my friend is good with the hook. And she's not charging me.

The hairs might break but as long as the roots aren't damaged they'll grow, and my hair grows fast.

The hat is part of the uniform. Though your laws will be different to mine, not being from America.

Why do they have to have special meaning? It's only hair. I got them done because I could. And they are natural, it's my natural hair. Not using any synthetics.

You say the hook makes it messy by breaking hairs but then say to expect messiness in the first year, make your mind up.

They where crocheted to begone with. I'm not sure whether you've got the photos the right way around. When I said the last 3 were a week in, I meant that they were a week in after being maininted (2nd time with the crochet).

I know the hook can damage hair and stuff and I don't intend to use it religously.

Thanks for the link.

Hi there, I thought its about time I joined a forum.

I started my dread journey in July this year after a friend opened her own dread/braid business. We decided to keep the ends loose to try and get a whispy look, but as you can see in the photos below it looked quite messy.

I've just had them maintained and blunted off slightly, the last set of photos are where I'm currently at. Much neater but still frizzy and a lot less wild! I'll take the frizz as a mix of my hair type and some hairs being broken and falling out due to the crocheting. I've got naturally curly and oily hair

The first 3 photos are day one, the second 3 are before I had them maintained and the last 3 are roughly a week in. There's 4 months time difference between the first 3 and the last 3. (excuse the mask, covid and the workplace) 

Ive tried palm rolling to tone down the frizz but I never seem to have any luck. I know it's not a miracle worker but it just seems to create more frizz. Add that onto wearing a hat forwork and my dreads being young my hair jist explodes. 

Im currently using dolly locks shampoo and a salt spray, though I don't wear a sleep cap, I find them too uncomfortable. 

How do you people think they're looking?
