interlocking root flipping dreadlocks
interlocking or root flipping dreadlocksinterlocking or root flipping are the same basic thing, its done by pulling the dread through the looser roots either by hand or with a tool, in an attempt to tighten the roots further then it naturally should be tightened.
interlocking is never recommended, here is why:
when you pull the dreadlocks through the root you are weakening the dreads at that point, you will be left with split roots with the dread holding the roots apart.
in addition to the weakness you create gaps between dreads that leave exposed scalp to sunburn . tightening the dreads too tightly to the scalp can cause other issues as well, uneven pulling which can be painful a permanent braided look to the interlocked areas. and can possibly lead to breakage.
This is what healthy dreads should look like!
