Each lock does tell a story. but crocheting cuts that story short. Crocheting, even a little, destroys locks. It breaks each hair into smaller and smaller pieces. This weakens your locks and makes them more likely to actually snap in places and fall off.
Even one session with a crochet needle takes months to recover. But there is a point at which they can't recover.
And Definitely wash. You should be washing 2-3 times a week. Dirty hair won't lock well. And just because hair doesn't smell or feel dirty, doesn't make it clean.
What shampoo are you using?
