HELP?!? Dreads fell out!
Help! Save My Dreads
I agree with SE, its the overtwisting. everyone that I knew that had locs that were either too thin or overtwisted or a combination of both went bald and lost their hair. i have very kinky hair with no curl pattern (i am of african descent as well) and i do not retwist at all. now mind you im only 5 weeks in but within those 5 weeks my hair is already locked (had confirmation from a few loc veterans in RL), very strong, and I freeform.
Retwisting and palm rolling is not necessary for our hair to loc. Start with that first, soon as you said that your loc was hanging from a strand of hair I instantly flash backed to the bouts of the fallen locs that ive seen from others. I believe that the years and years of twisting built up to what causes your locs to be weak today. I hope this helps. Please send me a message if you need any support.
