The "Constantly Changing" Law of Locks


Dread Maintenance

Yeah the roots seem healthy and strong.

Not so much breakage, thinning, and shedding there.

The "Constantly Changing" Law of Locks


Dread Maintenance

So its been about two weeks longer and my problems still persist...I switched over to the Liquid dreadlocks shampoo and havnt noticed much of a change in the tightness, but it smells amazing.

But, my problems still persist and dont know what I else I can do...They keep shedding, thinning and breaking...Here are pictures of whats going on.

g^ The end is going to break off this one. (A few have have this happen)^ Little clumps of hair shedding.These two ends used to be twice as long.

^ Both of those are examples of my hair shedding. Groups of hair that was once knotted into the dread is now coming undone causing locks to be weak in parts due to thinning.

I dont know what to do :(

Do you have to wash the salt out or can you just rinse it out?

How often should I do a sea salt spray?

The "Constantly Changing" Law of Locks


Dread Maintenance

They dont feel damaged. They just feel loose.

My diet and stress levels are pretty well maintained. Mostly vegetarian and I live a pretty clear lifestyle with daily amounts of meditation and yoga.

Locks are almost 3 years old. I wear them down 95% of the time.

I dont think they are dry and brittle. They just feel loose. Like I could (but dont) pull the lock apart. Some like one I posted earlier are getting weak spots that are thinning and in turn cause for breaking. I honestly feel they just need to be locked tighter.

Ill try the liquid within the next week. But the sea salt should I add it to the liquid shampoo, or just do sprays in between washes?

The "Constantly Changing" Law of Locks

I wish I could define the issue more clearly. =/

For the record, im not pulling the ends apart. I was simply stating that to demonstrate how loose the once knotted up ends are, and are now coming undone, apart of my own doing.

All I know is, for awhile now, Ive been having ends come undone, loosing length, some breaking in half, and other shafts becoming weak and shedding. Whats causing it? Whats the issue? I have no idea, thats why im coming here and asking. Ive been supplementing with Biotin for the past two months and switched to the shampoo bars. Havnt noticed a improvement.

And yes, those two locks are the same. Just photographed 3 months apart to help demonstrate the damage. Should I go back to the Baking Soda? This was happening when I was doing the BS/ACV too, which is why I switched to the bars because people said I was frying my hair with the BS...

All my friends with backcombed dreads and even crocheted dreads have tigher, fuller locks that dont break, shred and come undone...I thought natural was supposed to be the healthiest and just dont know why mine are going through the ringer. :(

The "Constantly Changing" Law of Locks

I have a hard time believing its shrinking because my locks are going on 3 years old...You can clearly see the loops and knots that all came undone and shed in the two pictures over the course of the past 3 months.

Should I add anything to my regimen? Sea salt sprays maybe? I have a hard time believing my locks are not moisturized enough because these bars are really nourishing.

Just wish I knew what was causing it. Its like they arent locked tight enough or something. I can literally pull the hair at the ends apart. Its barely hanging in there.

Yeah some people have suggested it was the BS frying my hair, which is why I switched to the bars.

The problem persists. =/

So after using the bars for 3 months, I can say this is not solving my problem.

Locks are still breaking off, ends are coming undone, and shafts are continue to weaken...I dont understand what could be causing this?...

People with natural dreads: Did you encounter your locks changing this much? Ive lost some serious growth and am still continuing to.

3 months ago:

Now:

Spirals and loops are gone and I lost about 2 inches in length...Is this normal??? :(

Congo Coming Undone.


Help! Save My Dreads

I think we should make a thread all about congos which will encompass why or why not to force combine.

What category should it be in? Maintenance? Dreadlock Styles?
