has anyone seen this video? (crazy salt lady and Johnny clean cut & exchange dreads)


Dread Products

At the risk of getting flamed, I have to admit, I really do like their locks - irrespective of how they were "made" haha. That tattoo is a bit full on, though.... Each to their own I suppose.

Used crochet method... what should I do now?


Introduce Yourself

Hey, I started with the crochet method aswell. You have only crocheted the once, so I wouldn't get too worried about it haha. There may be some damage to the hair, but given your minimal usage of the hook, it shouldn't be too noticeable or a long-term problem. Based on your description and my own experiences, I would say that the main thing you should prepare yourself for are the 'frizzies' which will become apparent while you're waiting for your dreads to "naturalize". Leave them be! Other than that, you shouldn't have too many other set-backs. Just sit and wait, and let your hair do its own thing.If you like the look of them now, stress less is my main piece of advice, because chances are you will like them even more once they start to fatten up and lock properly :-D As for washing, I wouldn't advise waiting two weeks unless that's when you usually wash your hair. Besides the obvious aesthetic disadvantages, hair generally locks a lot better when it is clean.Don't get too worried about some of the horror stories you read on here. Definitely take them into consideration, but at the end of the day, if it works for you, then it's the right thing to do. In saying that, I would advise you to stop crocheting altogether now. I found that it was very good for setting the "foundation" for my dreads (just like tnr or backcombing), but at the cost of damage to my hair. Ultimately only time will create dreads. I hope that helps :-)

Why is this conversation even still going? Micah wants crocheted dreadlocks, you do not. In the same tenet as "if you dont like gay marriage, dont marry a gay person", if you don't like crocheted dreads, DON'T HAVE THEM! Simple as that. Now leave it be.

Disagreeing with you automatically means I have an attitude..."Crochet dreads idiots on youtube" - he's an idiot because he doesn't follow your methods?... Starting to see a pattern emerge here ;-)I think it's fragrantly clear that the guy realises that damage can occur... And I'm commenting because a) it's a public forum and b) I think it's sad that you would broadcast a stranger across said public forum purely to disparage him. It's bullying under the guise of education, and I honestly think it's just awful.

dude im so sick of your attitude whos forcing him to do anything/ im just telling him the truth
that ther crochet is extremely dammaging and that if he wanted thin dreads he shouldnt have made thick sections

and why are u even commenting here? your being an asshole just causing a fight to get your drama fix
it has nothing to do with u so why are u continuing to push the issue?

I am so sick of reading your shit where you try and dictate who and who can't have dreadlocks. If he wants them to fit in, who are you to say he can't? And if he wants to use a crochet hook, who are you to say he can't? It's HIS hair! For some people dreading isn't a "spiritual journey"; it's a hairstyle. Why is that a problem?I'm all for education, don't get me wrong. I think everyone has a right to know the pro's and con's about each method... but then it's up to them to decide. Don't try and force it down their throats, because that just creates unnecessary hostility and undermines what could be a good point.

soaringeagle said:
very well said plus its all scammy sites pushing wax and crochet making u believe that dread wig look is the only acceptible look and natural healthy dreads are undesuirable so most dreads these days have zero personality


btw micah ..watched your other vids and it is pretty clear that you are dreading just to fit in and seem cool


for opl who \didnt see it his other vids all about how he wasnt sure if he was dreading just to fit in to his hippie dready community or if he actualy wanted to dread cause he wanted to dread

if u gotta ask the question then the answers odvios
and if u dread with the attitude that u want dreads as long as they dont look like real dreads then well your dreads wont last long at all

"straightening hair soesnt break hair"A 240 degree straightener applied to hair for 30 minutes a day, 7 days a week... trust me, it does! But that was my choice- I am not saying you HAVE to do it. If someone wanted to know how I straightened my hair, of course I'd show them. That doesn't mean I should have my face posted on a website just to tear me down, though. It's really up to the viewer to filter through the bullshit and form their own opinions.I honestly fail to see how i'm being an asshole lol. I'm as cool as a cucumber at the moment.
