Crap, that post down below this one...was meant to be put in the...flat dreadlock thing you started. Ooops. i dont use computers too terribly much so this is the result. Sorry. But yeah. Keep rockin!
It's just part of it. I have one that is very flat, I call it my tape worm. Peoples faces when they hear me talk about checking the progress of my tape worm...fun.
It adds depth and character anyways, just learn to enjoy it and accept the insanity.
Welcome the crocheting is extremely destructive and you really should stop it immediately or really not going to last long.It's probably a love-hate relationship because you have to spend so much time working on them. It would be in love, love thing if you did nothing to them
Welcome. if you want to crochet them, then you want to crochet them. We can't come to your house and stop you. We are only here to let you know how damaging it is your your locks and how it really prevents them from forming right.
All a crochet hook does is break your hair into smaller and smaller pieces which weakens your locks and makes hem frizzier which makes you think you need more maintenance.
If you want dreadlocks for a fashion statement and plan on cutting them off in a few years, then you're on the right track. If you want them for a deeper reason and want them for life, then crocheting them is a bad call.
And yes, if you crochet them often, you will have to cut your hair when you get sick of locks, because with all of th breaking you are doing to your hair, if you tried to comb them out, you'd have a mess of uneven hair
