Hey i have had dreads for about 4 years now and they are fully locked except for the tips.
anyway i had about 130 dreads when i first started and recently they started thinning out so i combined them.
after combining them the roots were just as thin as both the dreads separate if not thinner witch didnt make sense to me.
so ive cut off the extra dreads witch was about 20 of them and my dreads are still thinning.
is there any way to stop it? or is this just part of dreads getting longer?
i use tea tree oil apple cider vinegar and baking soda mix. i wash about once a week i used to every three days but it got tedious.
i noticed i rip my dreads apart more often now to keep em separate cause the longer they go together it seems the more hair that rips out of them.
