1st Picture: I'm wondering why this happened? Really bummed out when I realized it was thinning. Few days ago I tried finding it again but realized it fell out. It's already a small dreadlock, so my guess is that it wasn't holding on to too much hairs?
2nd Picture: Found another one that's similar to the one that fell off. The area where I'm pointing is where it's thinning, feels like it's barely hanging on.
The rest of my dreadlocks seem to be doing fine. It's just these two that I noticed so it's not really a problem. Unless they all start to do that then yes I'll be freaking out haha. I have read that not conditioning will cause breakage. 2 months ago I purchased the Transcend Conditioner from dreadlockshampoo so I've been using it once a week. (Btw I HIGHLY recommend that to everyone, it smells INCREDIBLE!!).
As far as maintenance goes, I haven't done absolutely nothing to them other than washing and separating (31 months and counting). Didn't crochet, twist n rip, palm roll. Nothing at all.
