I've had my locs for 10 months and don't see the problem of going to get them done or twisting them yourself, NOONE ive ever know with locs has had hair loss. I have african american hair btw.

I feel like as  long as you dont twist too often  you should be ok. I only retwist once a month.

Why can't you grow skinny locks free-forming? I have some very thin free-form locks starting in my hair right now. Even the section is tiny. If they start skinny why can't you continue to separate them and keep them that way?

Not commenting on the video. Just asking about skinny freeform locks.

Thanks for the responses. Just wanting to continue learning about dreadlocks!

Just re-sharing this because her locs are such beautiful african locks without the twisting...anyone think they don't look taken care of?

holy shit.  From what I have read here in this tread, everything I was doing to my hair from about 1 year old was wrong!!  WTF?  lol.  So, maintaing dreads will cause breakages etc.  Shit, I know when I was younger and I had straight hair I had lots of hair stuck in my brush.  Damit, my I always knew mums know nothing!!!  haha.  can't stop laughing now. 

what have you been doing to them?
