Dreadlocks site's servers are partialy funded by mining BTC on hashflare any additional profits are donated to Fredoms Wings International Soaring for people with disabilities
well we will do our best and yes this sites your best hope.. but "in no time' is a bit much to expect. it can take awhile.
i think.. i hope.. it will be a full recovery.. but how long a full recovery takes is anyones guess.
we can place bets (id say 6-8 months) but it could be 4 or 14 or 24
the better you care for health of hair and scalp the better the chances are
so this week will be soaring in a competition
this is the pre start gaggle
could be 20-40 gliders circling in tight circles in a invisible column of rising air
then use a combo of thermals (rising columns of heated air) and ridge running (maybe even wave) if conditions permit to fly long distances around the course.
finally getting on final glide and a high speed race to the finish
theres also a possibility of an off field landing
also tell us what you have been doing for maintenance
stopping what your doing to cause it ofcourse is mot important
finally, i'll have our best expert check in on this later today
your issue is moderately severe. we have seen worse recover.. but all hairs different.. can't make any guarantees. but i believe you will recover
it will take some time though
how do you typically wear them?
sure looks like it
1 stop any form of maintenance (retwisting interlocking)
2 wash a bit more often then you are now (weekly is a good minimum)
3 massage the scalp deeply every day, several minutes a least. massage it like your kneeding dough, like your trying to loosen the scalp from the skull. in fact it should feel looser after
4 biotin is a vitamin, either take it internally(10,000-15,000 mcg a day) or a biotin infused shampoo
5 stop using any gels
what are you currently washing with?
