I didn't mean to attach you. I was just helping inform about the damages of crocheting. All that was said in your profile was that you used natural/crocheting methods, when I posted. It sounded like you were told that crocheting was natural.
I didn't realize that only part was crocheted, and the rest was natural. Glad to hear it.
I mean, everyone can do what they want with their locks. We're here to help people grow healthy locks, so we get enthusiastic about informing people about damaging methods. But no one is frowned upon for using other methods unless they start to push them on others. I don't even push the neglect method. I didn't use it for many of my locks, myself. Mine are a combination of TnR, back combing, interlocking, palm rolling, root rubbing, rubber band, etc...
You are more than welcome here.
Welcome. But crocheting isn't natural. In fact, crocheting is the most damaging thing that can be done to locks. It shreds your hair and makes locks weaker and weaker.
Every time you pass the hook through a lock, it breaks hairs into smaller pieces. This creates more frizzy hairs that create the illusion that you need to crochet more. If you leave them be, they'd get sucked into a lock soon enough.
and srry iut the misscommunication its just alotta salons tr=y to claim natural means anything that uses real (as aposed to synthetic) hair and/or anything thats not a dread perm (or some extend thattio include wax) so just was trying to make it ]clear cause too many dint understand that natural dreads form naturally at all..u know
and thats why ppl think they have to have em made by a technician
its the muddying up the concept that hurts the entire understanding of what dreads are
ah ok thats good..attack? trying to help isnt an attack
glad your on the right path now just wish u got her e sooner
2 weeks would have made alot of didfference
natural dreads are formed by nature like a seed falling in the woods sprouts a treee
crochets like taking a jackhammer to concrete to "plant" a tree made of steel and fiberglass
theres nothing natural about crochet
welcome but crochetsfar far from natural and is extremely bad for dreads throw the hook away and let them recover it will take 6 months to recover and they wont begin to dread till 6 months after u throw rthe hook away
Welcome and Happy Dreading..
