1 week in, question about scalp
that's entirely typical of salon dreads
1 of 2 things can happen
1: you go back to the salon over and over and that gets worse and worse the tightening by force causes traction alopecia and balding
2; you leave them alone except to wash and separate..in weeks they get looser and less scalp showing..
eventually new growth covers the scalp and they dread on their own
do not retwist!
27 years growing dreadlocks the natural way
My dreads are over 9 feet long
