I hope someone will be able to help with my question. I am in my 3rd year with my dreads and all is going well. Lately I have noticed that in there are a few dreads that have started healthy but have thin out to the point where it is hanging by a few strands.

Its mainly on the sides near my ears only. Should I be concerned and is there any way to prevent it from accruing?

Pictures would help.
what have u done to your dreads
this is common if u interlocked or root rubbed to death or twisted too much

11st tell us everything u did to your dreads and we'll figure out from there and yea pics will help too but ..history even more from how u started to all maintenance u did

and especialy did u ever use any so called dread tools
I have never used any dread tools. I see a Locktician very 2 months and I believe he uses the the interlock method. In between that time I don't do any extra twisting, i just leave my dreads until i see her again.

stop seeing her!! interlocking will cause yoiur dreads to fall off
locticions are a scam theres less then 1% in the world that arent destructive

ok you niow have severely weakened dreads..theres nothing to do about that but try to recover. that means ..zero maintenance for a gvood while well almost, dreads that arent thinned you can still seperate..nothing elsde, the thinned dreads though your only option to save em is to alow them to congo and combine with nearby dreads
once the roots are stronger u can resume seperating..but thats it

interlocking is 1 of the 2 worse things u can ever do to dreads (well going to a salon or loctition at all is up there in the top worse things u can do too)



were there products used too?

im sorry to tell ya the bad news but at least there is a wauy around it
a few congows and let the rest go and become healthy

im so glad u found us when u did

so every 2 months fir how long? just guessing at the level of weakkening it caused

be sure to thank your loctitian for screwing up your dreads and ..while your at it tell her interlockings the worse thing u can do to dreads.

suggestion the thinnest weakest dreads wrap embriodery thread round that 1 and next nearest 1 from roots to 1/2 inch to inch out u can leave it on till it falls apart or take off in a month or so
or i can add a bead that fits over 2
In fairness to my loctician, I really don't know what kind of method that he uses to do my dreads. I've done some reading on interlocking and I don't believe that is the process that used on me. The rest of my dreads are fine, I would say that I have 4 dreads that have thinned out.

Could other factors, such as diet,stress, etc,.. cause this? I should also add that the only time my dreads are washed is when I see my loctician
yikes well

wash your dreads ..dont go to a loctition..ever..theres no reason to

u shild be washing weekly at leasst

ok describe what he does to u in detail..did he tell u not to wash?
Continuing to see a loctician is at very least a waste of money..at most is destructive. If he's just washing and twisting I don't really see how that could cause the roots to be breaking unless you don't moisturize your hair.

Both diet and stress can cause your hair to start thinning along with pretty much anything else that causes hormonal changes.

over twisting certainly can cause it too
once a dreads formed theres no reason to go on twisting
hes seen a lictician every 2 months for 3 years,.. that im 99% sure is the cause

whatever the loctition does combined with not washing (clogged pones caked ion dandruff etc)

i think u should call the loctition and find out exactly what he does (after washing your hair)
if the loctition told u not to wsash ..thats enough reason to never trust him (possibly enough reason to sue his ass too)

Dreads are about freedom, let the "loctitcian" go, your dreads will thank you for it.
yea theres less then 1% of all loctitions in the world are worth going to....once... nit 1 is ever worth going back to after the 1st time

i can almost guarantee its the loctition causing the damage but u need to tell us exactly what was done to u
I know a girl who gets her locks shaved by a loctitian.
