I have acquired some traction alocopia frombad lockitician maintainence practices:(
I went to a dodgy loctician for root maintenance around 8 months ago.During a consultation she said she could crochet my dreadlocks but come the day of the appointment she began to wrap threadtightly around my roots instead. When I insisted she crochet my roots she backcombed my roots with a comb and then proceeded to crochet the roots repeatively stabbing my scalp. After my complaining about the pain several times she stated that the pain was unavoidable and asked me how I could have put up with this "unavoidable" pain from locticians before.I wish I would of walked out of the appointment right then and there. Afterwards I complained to herin writing, despite getting a rude reply I got part of my money back.
The thread was in myroots for about 2 monthsuntil I found another loctician to remove it.(The thread was too tightly threaded for me to remove it myself) . I also had some synthetic dread extensions installed thta turned out to be heavy about 4 months ago, that were causing my dreads to twist.To my horror I discovered mycentre part had widened and a few balding spots. I had them taken out one month ago.
I did ask a doctor about the hair loss. He said hair will most probably grow back but he can't guarantee it. Has anyone on the forum recovered their hair back after experiencing alocopia? I being very careful now to keep the roots loose and no more synthetic extensions.
