Default Hook grip

I have hit a sticking point on my deadlift. I physically cannot pick up the weight and my grip isn't strong enough. I started adding grip work to my lifting day and was considering trying out the hook grip.
I have heard some people say that it is bad for your thumbs and some swear that it there are no downsides other than it hurts during the lift. If anyone has some experience with this please let me know.

Also what is the best grip work. Currently doing farmer carries, suitcase holds/shrugs, forearm roller (the wooden dor with a rope in the center that you hold out and roll up and down)
