Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is it good to crochet dreadlocks?

Re-dreading new growth is a normal part of dreadlock maintenance. As your hair grows it is not locked up and so regular use of a crochet hook for dreading this new growth is a good idea. This can be as frequent as you want.

When can you wash crochet dreads?

Just be sure to give your dreadlocks enough time to fully dry between washes. If you wash once every 3 or 4 days you’ll be perfectly fine! However, once a week is perfectly acceptable as well.

Are crochet locs heavy?

They are also extremely lightweight. I found this style to just be overall easy to maintain. It didn’t feel heavy and I received so many compliments from people while out and about.

What’s the difference between crochet locs and faux locs?

For faux locs you need to wrap the hair from the roots until the end of the hair. But for the crochet locs you will only need to wrap from the roots to where your natural hair ends. Wrapping the roots of your crochet locs to just where your hair ends means a quicker install than traditional faux locs.

Can dreadlocks be washed?

As your dreads mature, you don’t have to worry about lots of fluffing and re-dreading, so feel free to wash your dreads as frequently as you wish. No matter the age of your dreads, it’s important not to go longer than about a week without washing.

What’s the difference between locs and dreads?

Locs are cultivated, but dreadlocks aren’t. Dreadlocks also often stem from Rastafarian beliefs, which use the style to separate believers from the rest of society. As for physical differences, locs have a well-kept and tidier look to them compared to dreadlocks, which have a more natural appearance.

Can you undo dreadlocks?

Well, I’m here to tell you, yes, dreadlocks can be combed out, especially ones that have been properly cared for during their life, including regular shampooing and conditioning. This is very important! If you decide to comb out your ‘locks, it’s critical that you approach the process with much patience.

Now it’s your turn

Now that you have various styles to choose from, you can go ahead and explore them. Most of them you can DIY, but for a professional stylish look, it’s best to see your stylist. 

Remember, you can wear your crochet dreadlocks stylishly for any occasion.
