Welcome. Why did you get rid of the other sets? If you don't mind my asking.
What soap are you washing with? Just because it's all natural doesn't always make it good for locks. Many are too conditioning and will slow down the process and may even leave residue
I didn't read your profile till now. Like SE and Baba said...you don't need to maintain your roots! Especially as often as every two weeks?! Are you also crocheting? That's another no no because essentially crocheting is just breaking the hairs that make up your dread and over time there won't be any complete hairs holding them all together in "ropes" on your head!
welcome but maintenance every 2 weeks?
your going to go bald..you are already! tightening the roots that tifhght xauses traction alopecia and balding the roots thin the y weaken and break the hair around each drad refuses to grow back
hair grows slowly 1/2 inch a month you never ever ever need to maqintain the roots..period but any more often then every 3 months is insaqne
every 2 weeks? what are u maintaining? your only causing more and more harm and yiur scalps screaming for relief
leave them alone! stop maintaining your only causing harm
if u dont want to look ike that in a few years u gt to stop what your doing right now
Welcome. Be careful with mango and lime products. Some contain wax in their ingredients which will only prevent locks and can cause mold and mildew. Wax does not wash out in normal soap and water, too. So check the ingredients on they stuff you're using.
Also, palm rolling only does 1 of 2 things. If you do it only once in a while, and gently, it won't create an lasting knots. So it's pretty pointless. If you do it hard enough and often enough to see progress, you are destroying your locks. Check this video out to see what only 2 weeks of palm rolling can do to your locks.
