"I was retwisting once a month and sometimes longer because I saw people's hairlines receding and I didn't want that to happen to me."

That sounds good. I'd recommend checking out the recovery forums. See what others went/are going through. It may help you

Welcome. I saw that you don' latch hook, often. That's good. But even that occasional latching does tons of damage that will prevent those spots from fully maturing

welcome crochet is 1 of the worse things u can do to dreads your completely destroying them with that hook

if u only do it once they arent destroyed byt are severely damaged and delays progress by 6 months

but the tendency is to crochet over and over to fix the danmage u caused the 1st time 5 years later your still crocheting still damaging moe and more and every hairs now broken into small peices so your dreads are very weak likely to break

Welcome. But I do have to warn you that crocheting is the second most destructive thing that can be done to locks, after felting. It's even worse than wax. Wax can be cleaned out, with a good detergent and lots of scrubbing. The damage from crocheting is completely permanent. It does nothing to help knots form, and only serves to shorten the longevity of locks. It also over tightens them and makes locks hard and stiff. Healthy mature locks should be soft and spongy.
