"When they mature you see a lot of growth,  As they are maturing they tend to shrink a ton.  Like 1/3 to 1/2 their original length.  If they don't shrink, it means they are not tangling, which means they are not locking."

Problem Wih My Locks

Hi Everyone im new here. My name is Andre. I've had my dreads for 8 yrs. I started out getting them twisted at salons. And goin 5 to 6 months without getting them done. I did that on and off for yrs. I had breakage and I lost some in the back. I dont wash them as often as I should. But since december I've been getting them latched. And wash them more. I feel like my hair has been the same length for 3 or 4 yrs. They are a little past shoulder length on the sides. And really short in the back.…See More
