Welcome and Happy Dreading
Always, Hippie Love
welcome definately dont retwist most afro=ican americans who do the salon dread thing are going bald from retwistimng
Welcome, like Baba had said the twisting start of your dreads are fine, but never re-twist for maintenance. Happy Dreading.
Welcome. Twisting is fine to start. But it should never be done as maintenance. Retwisting causes a condition called traction alopecia, which leads directly to baldness.
When you started, did you do it yourself or go to a salon? If a salon, did they use any wax, creams, or gels?
