I have more of the issue of splitting of the dread after interlocking the new hair, BUT i found that every time I interlocked I had to go in a difrnt direction and would never redo the one's that were split too bad, I would wait for it to grow out A LOT than lock it to mend the split. I only have like 5 that are split now & their sister locks so they are gonna be tuff to fix, but the rest of my dreads are fine. Matter fact all the issue's i have as far as knotting, lumps, etc are with these sister locks. I've joined the most of them with others that were thin, but some just can't be fixed. HOPING this natural remedy helps them.
they arent noticable unless u look wat =y too close so ignore em if u must for a wedding or interview use a lil aloe vera straight from the plabnt as aloe druies and condituions it shrinks pulling the loose hairs insmooth
anything that maintains them causes them lo]=ike some use a crochet hook to pull them in..breaking more hairs wich pop back out
the best thing to do is wash often leave enm alone
you didnt need to start your dreads if u washed with the right shampoo in the right way it would have dreaded itself so ofcourse the roots will continue to dread themselves if left alone
well if they wrre recently interlocked and u can safely undo that u should but after only a few days thats probly not going to happen once the interlock is done theres no fixing it just let them grow out and get healthy from here on
the loose hairs dont need maintenance! they belong there your scalp should be covered with hair that protects it from the harmful rays of the sun and skin cancer as those grow they dread..all on their own either by joining an exo=isting dread or becomming a new dread
wheen u say gaps to be sure u mean in the dread itself not between them? the gaps between dreads will self correct unless they are too advanced then scalp massages biotin massaging certain oils into the scalp to stimulate bloodflow and get hair to start growing again
gaps in the dreads from the dread being pulled through a gap will either self heal slowly or be permenaht theres nothing much you can do about that
except stoppping the interlocking ofcourse
Welcome please listen to SE he knows what he is talking about and Happy Dreading.
I interlock my dreads but I am going to stop doing that because of the long term effects. I have fine curly hair (like a bi-racial texture of hair) & I tried for like 4 yrs dfrnt ways to lock it and nothing worked for me besides interlocking, but now that their locked (about 18 in are locked for SURE) I'm going to start letting them grow natural & just seperate them as needed like my man S EAGLE suggested ANYWAY.....WELCOME!!!!
