I have tried to see how locks work by looking closely at my own. It looks like the hairs wrap around each other in both directions, clockwise and counterclockwise, and they crisscross over each other. This happens during the movement of the hairs, and while showering.Then if only a couple of hairs get tangled into a knot, it keeps them all together in a strand. It doesn't take very many hairs to cause a strand to tangle and stay that way. Maybe only two or three hairs tangled around the strand are enough to hold that strand together.Once you have a strand wrapped with a tangle, then the hairs underneath those hairs have nowhere to go. As they grow underneath the tangle, they wad up into a messy, crumpled, mat of hair. I'm trying to understand how the process happens over time, and this is what I imagine it looks like inside the dreadlock, hairs trying to grow up underneath an existing twist that is blocking them.That's how I would describe the process, if you are wondering how it happens by itself.

pretty close

take 2 straight perpandicular hairs (ok not 2 lets say 200)

tie a knot in the end

now at thar knot they are akll uneven no longer perpendicular but with loops and hairs at ever angle

that ebncourages others to loop through loops creatting knots (think of how christmass lights end up in a mess of knots)

then u sleep on em and they compress into tight matts

as they dread closer to the roots

the hair comming from scalps straight (ish bassed on type) the hair going into the dreads chaotic directions so its constantly knotting up cause of the unevenessNicole Binns said:
