I have had dreads for over 20 years, but just started to notice the tension alopecia a few years ago.. I had been hooking weekly, after washing.
I know the picture looks bad, but before it was SHINY and bald.. so now after almost two years of not twisting, my hair is slowly starting to grow back.I stopped using conditioner and only use coconut and jojoba oil, sometimes cinnamon or other essential oils and that has stopped my dreads from thinning too. I will try to update every few weeks now that I am using this non-natural product. Profectiv Mega Growth daily leave in. I only use it a couple of times a week, because I know it will leave build-up It seems to make my hair fuller, and seems to be helping with the growth, even though I am not completely sure about this... . It's heart breaking. but just be patient. I don't want to cut my dreads either. I will be follwing you to see what kind of progress you make!
