welcome ..good thing you stopped flippin the roots thats just really bad for em
Welcome. What gels was used? Unfortunately, most gels, even those marketed for locks, are actually bad for them. They leave too many residues, and tend to condition your hair when you wash them out.
And retwisting locks actually causes a condition called Traction Alopecia, which leads directly to baldness.
welcome 1st off never retwist or repeat the comb coils and most gels should be avoidsed
