you should have stuck around you would have known crochet is 1 of the absolute worse ways to start dreads

never ever recroichet or letthat hook touch your hair

use light conditioning to loosen them in a huirry if they are very tight and stiff

and its highly likely that you will hate the extendsions and cut them off relatively soon

really wosh you stuck around and researched more 1st

Question about soap


Dread Maintenance

castile soaps generaly cause residue  inhard water areas

thats why we recommende dreadlockshampoo.com cause its made for all water types and is 100% organic 

but castile soaps like bronners might work in water thats not very hard  but the harder the water the  worse the result ranging from just feeling oily to having a severe  waxy like buidup

the bronners gbar tolerates slightly harder water then the liquid cause its superfatted  (the liquid)

thats called a congo

i purposely have dozens that are 6 joined as 1 they are fine as long as the 1 combined is not too thick..  

cutting can result in  unevenly cutting so 1 dreads hanging on by only a few hairs.. or lost entirely  only cut if the combined dreads too big and theres no way to separate otherwise 

follow these steps in this order if your sure u must separate

1 while wet just try ripping them apart  even if its hard

2 if they wont come apart try adding a little olive oil to the connected parts to make it more slippery and try to pull apart

3 try wiggling a finger or knotting needle (not crochet hook) or even the prongs of a fork under just the  outermost few hairs and pull then outward

4 go back to step 1 after releasing a few of those hairs

5 as a very last resort  do this with surgical precision, like a brain surgeon,  maybe have help.. pull the dreads away from eachother  putting tension on the joint with a razorblade or exacto knife slice very carefully only a millimeter or 2  straight towards the scalp. go backi to step 1 and try to rip  

if they are joined but not over an inch thick.. just let them be joined

no interlocking is the name of a terrible technique they pull the entire dread through a gap in the roots

if they are joining together at the roots  while wet pull them apart dont snip anything they will 'pop" apart if you waited too long it will be more like a ripping apart 

while wets easiest and most pain free especialy if done often

only let them join together once mature and you know how thick the joined dreads will be

most cases we see are from retwisting and interlocking many are way way way worse

these are mine though 30 years 10 or 12 feet  53 years old and hardly anyt thinning 

the tightness from the loctician probly did more then the length ever would
