crocheting almost destroyed my dreads
I must disagree with you about palm rolling though. Palm rolling may be ineffective for most types of hair, but for negroids hair, and other certain types of hair it is simply the best method. My hair is very thick, but soft and strong so it holds a lot of water, and is perfectly straight submerged, but when it dries it curls up completely. So my locks are really nothing but my fro separated. But without a Monthly twist, they would merge at my scalp. It takes 45 minutes to twist, 45 minutes to dry(preferably), and because I easily have over 150 locks, I can the most creative style the stylist can think of. So with the palm roll, all that is needed is the tip of a rattail comb to rip and twirl, aloe gel, and maybe some locking creme or w@% at the beginning. My locks are pretty mature, but if I never got twisted again, 150 locks would probably turn to 50 in a year. They would eat each other. But now that I have a crochet, I dont have to worry about that anymore.
