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.

once a month is too often

it causes traction alopecia and in fact most likely everry single 1 u know had early stage traction akloppecia its an epidemic among african al=]mericans   u see it every single day on the streets

it gets worse the longter u ignore u[]it

do you see scalp showing/ thats traction alopecia setting in kids as young as 6 i see with it

19 year old as are getting transplants in record numbers

salonds aee ripping you off doing extreme j=harm

and

2/3 that have twisted only 4 times a year have had dreads lost thuinning roots and issues

your at 10 mi][onths thats nothing

if you keep twisting they wioll thin out

this is what can happen tyo you

http://www.dreadlockssite.com/video/retwisting-interlocking-tighten...

not to mention they never need tightening or maintaining..period its pointless unnecessary and harmful

why waste your money

well i like how my hair looks when its maintained. I still  doubt this is common because i have yet to meet someone it has happened to. I do plan space out twisting as my length increases.  Im actually gonna try the method in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6N5zmTr5F0&feature=plcp&con...

as a college student i need to have a level of  neatness  anyway to better increase my chances of getting job in my field. I may keep them a little bit past shoulder length. 

Also where are u getting these statistics?

now compare that to my dreads that  are twice as old and never had a single thohg done to thenm ever..zero maintenance  and they are thick strong healthy no balding no expence easy to care for

now if u see dreads that are 20-30-40 years old i gurantee every 1 of them is 100% natural unmaintained

by maintaining them you are shorttyening the lifespan thining the roots and risking dread loss

im gettuing the statistics from here and from ppln the street i see every day

and that vid shows some sings of it too not too mad but look at the thinness of the dreads and around the dreads the hairs thinning cant yoiu see thsat virewew fulk screen

look at tractionalopecia.org too  thats where i got the stats on transplants

look at evertyone ui see with tight braids and corn roews

see the baldness between?

that can become permenant

salons are destroying african americans hair

now if you want a job u have 1 guranteed wat to keep your dreads..keep them unmaintained then you can say thety have spiritual or religios meaning and they cannot under any circumstances say anythinbgft about thenm

but if u mnaintain you have no rights at all and they can say to cut them

your salons scare you into giving y]up ypur rights..ajnd your money

i havge had no issues with jobs and my dreads and never did a thihng to tghenm

I just dont believe that im GURANTEED  to go bald by keeping my locs maintained. Im aware of the dangers of hair loss but  i honestly  feel that if do lose hair, it would be due to  genetics from my dad than  from twisting my locs.  If i notice any thining ill combine.

i can tell just from twisting my beard that is going to start dreading in about another half inch, that twisting has thinned and broken many many hairs. i would never twist the hair on my head in the same/similar fashion. not unless i intentionally wanted to destroy them.

if u twist monthly its guranteed if u twist every 4 months its most likely if u twist yearly your probly ok

but

theres nio o point in twisting ever at all


those are natural unmaintained  and strong and heaklthy

look at virtualy every  twist or interlock vid on youtuv=be and i can point oi=ut the problems it causes

its more then common

irs the look that salons tell you is tidy..the scalp showing im going balfd look

its what they actively try to create! but its unhealthy and it causesthinning weakness gbewreakange and if you ignore it too long..permenant baldness

and theres absolutely no point in it at all excvept that salons shame you into thinking you need it u have to pay them or else your never going to get a  job

at my drs office theres a woman with locks (if u can call them that still) over the years ive watched them they were 1/2 inch thick she started f=going to a salon

now the roots are 1 mm thick painfully pi=ulled in si tight theres bumps on her scalp areas with no hair at all almost 1.2 inch riuhnd each "dread" the salonthen twisted 20 dreads togetger even more painfully to make 1/2 inch dreads again but  with tiny tint dreadlings feeding into it

i cringe when i see that

how many dreasds u see with scalp showing? how many braids?

how many cornrows

if left that way traction alopecia sets in..it recovers  if u let it..if u ignore it u need a transplant

but no matter what if u force the roots to be too tight u are causing it to happen

your pulling on tyhe roots the roots rebenl and stop growing the hairlines receded  away  from eachother thnning the roots

tghe gaps widen the hair between dreads thins

 and stops growing

dreads fall off

you get a poka dit look

you think thats attractive? it looks diseased..because it is diseased

but yoyr trained and conditioned by salonbs to beliefve thats a look you should want

like shaving your head to lok like a chemo patient

they cause a diseased situar=]tion  traction alopecia and then concvince you its on purpose and a look you should want

like getting cancer fir the fashion starement

why are you paying for that?

or talk to new dready  and how hers were thinning  in just months

I wanna try and keep the thickness i have  so i can braid and style them

.I just feel with PROPER care , maintained locs  can grow and prosper.

Even if i do have my locs for 20+ year( lord willin) , im sure that i won't need to go full blow free form
