hello, ive been lurking this site for awhile now and ive learned a lot through the threads here and i wish i had discovered this site when i first started my hair
i twisted my hair on my own about two years ago and they’ve turned into dreads pretty much from there, however i think i fell victim to twisting them over and over again too much and that’s why they’ve started thinning at the root, i’m not exactly sure as to what to do about this? do i wrap two weak dreads around one another? do i take new growth and wrap it around the root to support it? im hesitant on doing either of those because the times ive done it the roots would be super tight to the point where it’s tough to get a finger under it despite the root being supported.
also, my hair kinda looks a mess with all the new growth and tufts of hair here and there to the point where my parents want me to go to a salon for a retwist, which i fear because i see how tight they make the dreads there at the root and i don’t really want that, so what do i exactly do? advice please!
