Hey all, just to give some background. I started growing my dreads in 2008 using the beezwax method and after about 2 years I would get my hair retwisted about every 2 weeks and as time went by I slowly started to not get my hair done as often to the point of getting it done once a month. I think I joined this some in December of 2012 and it was also this time I decided to go the neglect method because the last time I got my hair retwisted it was so tight that I had a split in the middle of my head seperating my dreads plus some of my dreads started to look skinnier than usual.
I have tried the ACV/BS (I think that's what it is called) and it didn't work to well and then I tried the soap shampoes which work nicely. I now wash my hair about once every 2 weeks with the dread soap and the oils I use are black castor, canola sweet almond mixed with water and spray when my hair is dry. My scalp looks like it is growing back and recovering from the incident of the last time I got my hair retwisted which was in 2012 but now some of my dreads appear to slowly getting skinnier and skinnier.
I can feel it and see it and it appears that is what is happening. And when I look at the dreads, I see there is a bunch of lose hair around the dread, as if all of the hair apart of my dreads are coming out. What exactly is going on? Is it because I am not washing my hair right? What technique do people use to wash their dreads? Also some of my dreads have thinning sections in the middle and the ends. It's like my dreads are slowly becoming damaged and I have no idea why. I have not gotten my hair retwisted in about 2 years now and still I am having problems.
Plz help me! If you all need more information or pictures then I can provide those!
