Welcome to the community Jim. Wish you found this site sooner to save your dreads and pocketbook. Please listen to what the guys have told you, they will get you back on the right track. Looks like you have hard water where you live, if so, many dread shampoos and bars do not work well with that water type, including Dr.Bronners. They do not rinse out properly. What kind are you using, perhaps a buildup in your dreads made you want to take them out.....Peace
Welcome. Why did you go to crocheting? That's a major step backwards in your progress. And a major leap backwards in how long your locks will last for. Crocheting is one of the most destructive things that can be done to locks.
most ppl comb out crochet to go natural you did it all backwards u had the best dreads possible then took em out to get the worse u could get so..gotta ask why and well how long do u want them to last?
welcime but crochet was a hi]=orible idea its dread abuse and causes extreme harm and takes 6 months to recover from 1 single use why would u go from organic the nbest way to crochet1 of the worse/
There is a dread extensions group I started for members who have or want them. It's new and no one has put any tips on there yet, Perhaps you can be the first, as some members make postings wondering how to do it or maintain them. Would be great if you can share any knowledge, tips, & your pics about extensions, I don't have any myself, so am unable to contribute, but just made the group for others.....thanks & peace http://www.dreadlockssite.com/group/extenstions-group
