Cause of thinning dreadlocks?
Hate to come back here and write this but after my first post and until now, 5 more dreadlocks have thinned so badly that I pulled them out. And there's 6 MORE that are thinning at midpoint. At first I wasn't worried, but now more than before. All I can ask is why? So I came to a couple possible reasons:
1. All of the ones that are affected by this thinning are dreads that are fairly thin in the first place. But I'm sure that I'm not the only ones with thin dreads and that there's plenty of ya'll that have them and are doing just fine.
2. I do air dry, but before I step out the shower I use to grab them and squeeze them as hard as I can. But I mean SUPER hard. I'd grab a handful and and squeeze and turn them to get the water out. But I'm realizing that could be doing more harm than good because I'm thinking that as I'm grabbing them and turning and twisting them I could possibly be ripping or tearing the core of the dread. So I stopped doing that. Though I still squeeze them, but not like the Hulk I was before.
I did take the advice from SE and hemp thread and wrapped 3 of them last month.
