I understand about retwisting . my scalp is not bald though and also I never ever went to a salon, this is Nigerian style its design for true rasta and poor man. but I will take that into consideration. Thanks for the help Jah Bless!
In order to maintain my hair I have to retwist it. my hair has grown since those pictures that was at about 4 months. now most of my locks are half past my ear and I have new growth. retwisting my hair stimulates the roots and causes it to grow. even my hair is short it is locked when I wash my hair my locks don't come out other than new growth. I have used the Nigerian method of brushing it and my locks have grown, once they are at the top of my back then I will marry them for thickness. but as I brush they marry a little bit.
Also not sure if there is any one talented enough to tnr like 3.5 to 4 inch hair. But I'm a beginner so maybe someone can its good advice that way I know what to look for. I plan on adding pics of current hair to help people better understand my hair lol but
