I posted a question titled "Salon Nightmare?" a couple days ago and after reading the responses, I decided to redo my dreads.
I found out that they braided my hair at the root and used the interlocking method afterwards. Then they placed an extremely tight rubber band at the start of the crocheted locks.
The method I chose is the twist and rip method and I have a some questions I want to ask to figure out if I did it correctly and other things...
I finished redoing five locks today and I've noticed a lot of loose hair around the root of my newly done dreads. Is that normal?
Also, is it normal for the dreads formed from the twist and rip method look kind of like a christmas tree and there to be a lot of loose hair on my scalp (neer the roots of the new dreads)?
Finally, (sorry for asking so much questions), a lot of my hair got damaged by the salon and as I was combing out the dreads they made a lot of hair fell out. I did the twist and rip method with the leftovers and they are kind of thin. I do not really care that they are thin, since I'm going to allow my dreads to form by themselves (which I learned from this wonderful site). Would my dreadlocks be more natural and healthy for my hairif I just leave the crocheted dreadlocks to recover or comb those out and redo them?
How the salon did my hair: I found out that they braided my hair at the root and used the interlocking method afterwards. Then they placed an extremely tight rubber band at the start of the crocheted locks. They just combined all the bad ways to make a dread on my hair... ='(
