Bummed out...thinning out in center/end of dreadlocks

My dreads are all natural, free-form dreadlocks, 5 years old. I'm bummed out because one of my locs is thinning out towards the bottom. The end is thick, and the roots are thick, but I've got about a four inch section that is really thin. I know the end will eventually fall off. Is this common? I am thinking that the cause is from using the dread to tie up other dreads. The root is behind my ear by the base if my scull. It has been a go to for tiring up other locs. I'm just wondering if others have had this problem.

I think it's normal for more mature dreads. Mine are natural about 4 years old, and I have the same thing going on with one of my favorite locks. A few of my ends have broken off small parts already, but I believe that is mainly from the sun drying them out.
