My dreads are 10 years old and they are migrating to the top of my head.  I am not experiencing any balding or any hair problems, but my dreads keep migrating. What can I do?

migrating meaning what? what are you doing if anything

the roots got to come from the same places  i don't see how they canmigrate unless  your tightening them  and they were in a particular patern that's changing

a photo and better explanation might help

were you retwisting or interlocking or letting a loctician style them?

if so that's the cause and stoppings the solution

wearing them up or back  tightly a lot can do it too

I was retwisting them myself, and then I stopped and let them do their thing, but believe it or not my hair just will not dread without doing some type maintenance.  I usually don't wear my hair up or back because it just doesn't feel good it hurts no matter how loose I pull them back.

it definitely will dread without maintenance ..just not so tight to the scalp to cause this issue

it shouldn't hurt

post pics when your able but i am about 96.78% certain that stopping all maintenance for 6 months will show some signs of improvement, a year should fully recover ..and prove to you they will dread perfectly fine without force

this issues extremely common with these type maintenances

your hairs beautiful so i want you to make the best choices for it

without the maintenance there should be no more pain (after a few months) but wouldn't tie them back pain or no pain till fully recovered

I'm almost positive you are right because I started noticing problems when I was retwisting.  When you say no maintenance do you mean just wash and rub with a towel in circular motion, and pull apart any dreads that are trying to grow together, or do you mean no manipulation at all?

no rubbing but do pull apart any that try to grow together

pulling apart dreads that are combining's the only recommended maintenance

circular rubbing if aggressive can pull 1/2 the hairs right out of the scalp

1 thing since the hairlines compromised  try  rubbing  it ..massaging it

panterra recommends  rubbing it like kneading dough or like your trying to loosen the scalp from the skull that will help rebuild the capillaries

yup exactly what i expected

it could have gotten way worse  you'll recover fully

maybe take biotin  till you see a significant thickening

that's absolutely caused by the mauntenance
