Help! My beautiful dread babies went from vienna sausages to pencils!
Help! Save My Dreads
-twisting and locticians (especially if they ever interlocked them) are the cause of the thinning freeforming (without pulling hairs out of them) is the cure
they are already thick so wouldn't combine them
but if you watch the progression of salon "locs" (they can't even spell locks right) you will see they make the sections on average 4-5 times bigger then the intended dread then all the twisting thins not only the dread to 1/3 the section size on average but then the sections themselves thin as the gaps they call parts (which are not parts but traction alopecia whether mild or severe) parts have 10 follicles per mm the traction alopecia salons cause on purpose tends to have 4-5 mm without a single live hair follicle so these gaps widen as the sectons shrink.. the thinning between dreads may not be bad if you let them recover for 6 months but the sections were still thinned and will have to row more in order for the loose hairs to reinforce the dreads (or form baby dreads between)
you re on the right track by no longer twisting or letting locticians touch you ..but you have to stop pulling out hairs and give them several more months to recover
every 3-4 weeks is extreme! it takes 3 months to recover from 1 retwisting and if ou retwist again a that 3 months they don't fully recover enough that eventually they will have issues
every3 weeks for 2 1/2 years is enough to cause plenty of harm but should be easy enough to recover from withoit doing anything extra esides stopping the twisting
sorry keyboards actng up
thank you so much! you have been a tremendous help to me.
