retwisting locs or dreads is not necessary and not recomended whats worse is it comes with serius dangers that can cause permanent harm.
retwisting dreadlocks puts extreme tension on the roots which causes a slowly prof=gressing condition called traction alopecia
days ago a dread whos had dreadlocks 12 years joined and stated he twisted monthly and opalm rolled often (i cringed and knew what to expect but hoped to be wrong) (i wasnt) below is the photo
notice how twisting dreads and palm rolling (which i would also recomend he stop imediately) c=has caused thinning of dreads 4 or 5 dreads lost and a progressive thinning of the hair ariund each dread the tension on the scalp makes the hair no longer want to grow
the dreads become thinner and thinner as they get closer to the roots while the balding gaps between dreads becomes wider and wider
why is this?
salons..locticians they recomend this and other harmful root tightenings to give a "neet look" the neet look is defined by them they convince you there should be bald gaps between your dreasds
why? they make you believe dreads require lots of work by a lock tech=nician the reality is dreads are best when you do next to niothing to them
they want your money they charhe you monthly to twust your dreads till your dreads twuist off
i hopethese can be saved this is advanced but ive seen worse intrrlocking as an exam=pke can cause far more severe issues
solutions imediateky stop retwisting palm rolling and mesing with them
reduce tension on tyhe scalp wear them in atam or loosely tied up with as lil weight pulling on the scalp as u can
i am forwarding this to our most gifted hair experts for cunsultation as well
in some cases medical intervention eben implants are required but im hoping in this case its not that far yet
i dont tyhink so but only our experts can say fir sure
if your retwisting or interlocking dreads sto p right away!
the damage can be severe and permenant
