Hello guys, I'm new to the forum. I've been lurking for a while and just decided to join, cool site. But I have a question. I started my journey two years ago and my hair still hasn't locked at the roots fully. Naturally my hair is very textured and soft, I've always thought that might have been the reason. Excuse me if I sound naive, I'm not really up on dread lingo lol nor do I do my hair myself.

considering that u interlocked they look damn good much healthier then expected

they look just the way they should look

what is it that u thinks wrong

because you dont look like your going bald like most imnterlockers? cause u do nnt see more scalp then hair?

I guess its the fuzziness and the fact that I don't see my scalp often. Plus my head itches quite a bit. I interlocked for like the first, I want to say, 7 months. And they used oils no wax, I've never used wax. But I have used shea butter and now I am using gel.

how often are u washing u should nedver see the scalp thats traction alopecia and why most interlockers are gonna end up bald

be glad u dont see scalp

the scalpy looks not a good look anyway..and its a medical condition that salons try to sell you as preferable

its the reason why 40% of all african americAnsd get traction alopecia at 1 oiint oranother..its extremedly unhealthy and u should be damn proud to not see scalp

Since your hair grows out starting at the roots, your roots won't lock.
