Best answer: Do crochet dreads shrink?

How long do crochet dreads take to mature?

If you’ve been on top of the maintenance your dreads may feel locked and quite mature already at 3-4 months. Many people find that all but maybe a few oft heir dreads feel tight and they no longer need Dread Wax after the third month.

Are dreads supposed to shrink?

The amount of shrinkage varies from about 10-30%. It occurs over time as your hair is growing, so very often it will seem that your dreads are not growing longer at all.

How many times should I crochet my dreads?

On average, I personally crochet dreadlocks every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain a tidy look. However, some people may prefer the look that comes with having some hair growth and may, therefore, prefer to wait a little longer between dreadlock maintenance periods.

How often should I oil my locs?

Once your locs are mature, we recommend you deep condition every 1-2 weeks to keep your locs healthy, strong, and moisturized.
