Day 17 of my LOC


Introduce Yourself

these are 100% natural never twisted to start, never retwisted  the other, a shocking example of the extreme damage retwisting can do, notice in the photo they are actively beingretwisted  even though the damage is already the most severe ive ever seen (and ive seen a whole hell of alot)  notice how healthy and thick they stay if u dont worry about alil frizz but just leave them be, but if u try to controll them by force  you do severe harm

never  never ever  it causews traction alopecia and balding  if u must  twice a year but not at alkl tight

40% of all african americans get traction alopecia  95% or more who retwist or interolock do

many dont stop even after 60% or more hair loss

its going to get frizzy b4 it gets tight u will always have frizz embreace it but itt will always be dreading

your freinds that tell ui to retwist do they have lots of scalp showing the dreads thinner then the sections pulling tight on the scalp?

Root Flipping AKA Interlocking? NO FLIPPING WAY!!!!


salon and loctician dreads recovery

your right those spots are at least 35% weaker (can be much weaker then that) but that alones still pretty strong, except those spots are snap points, where the elasticirty, the shock obsorbtion, that keeps them from breaking is gone, those areas dont stretch if yanked, instead they snap

breaking off is a risk, however not a guarantee theres a chance they may never break

but ..youmay have permenant weird krinkle points or gaps, or holes.

if you had contin ued to do it you Are nearly guaranteede to have traction alopecia and balding (out of roughly 40,000 cases of interlocking aka root flipping i have seen 4...yes 4  that did not seem to have trouble from it) its a very high risk thing to do to dreads

notoriously bad  in fact so bad that locticians routinely change the name ofthe process every several  years so they can continue to do it while avoiding the "common knowledge" fac ts that it can cause dread loss and balding

some names its known by:

  • root flipping
  • interlocking
  • looping
  • rooting
  • knotting
  • sisterlocks
  • brotherlocks
  • nappylocks
  • latching or latchhooking
  • loc stitching
  • there are other names too, more come  out all thetime in fact, many locticians now no longer will tell you what they are doing, claiming its a secret technique they developed, and they can't tell you and give away thier trade secrets..  any salon that will not tell you exactly what they do and use, as well as all the ingredients in the products they use must be avoided at all costs.

interlocking or root flipping is 1 of the worse, and most rediculous proceesses salons use.

a few of the more trustworthy salons (there are very very few that are trustworthy) will refuse to interlock or rootflip

if a salon suggests it, or doesn't warn you not to do it then you should  know not to trust that loctician

crochet dreads discussion and pictures


Dreading Methods

good, but the other set were only a week old, they never had to hold together at al;l, inj fact the looser they were the faster they would dread

now that these are crochetted they will take 6 months before they even start to dread most likely

at a week they should have been loose..very loose very messy

in fact should have gotten looser and looser  before even startintg to tighten up

 

now, that loosening  is going to take 6 months..  6 months untill they loosened enough to begin to dread on thier own

now if you look at peaople here who start from nothing...mo tnr no backcokmbing, many start to dread in weeks even days

and by 6 months are well on thier way..crochet makes them look  much more dreaded from the start but makes them take much much longer to actualy dread

you would have nbeen much better off leaving the tnr in

or if u were  to take out thetnr, just let them dread naturally, by doing nothing

Introduce Yourself

it is but can be done safely if your not just frying your hair  by that i mean use on a cooler setting and move itaround alot, do it inshort quick bursts  over time instead of  blowing  nonstop for 20 minutesz do a minute here a minute there spread out over hours ..that is if blowing is the only option like in winter  summer sun is the best faste4st way to dry

actually 1 tablespoon  to 1/2 liter is  spot on perfect...or close   thats basicly 17 oz or veery slightly under 17 oz  so, like a lil under 1/2 liter  is perfect though  yopir 1 tbs per 1/2 liters close enough
