Welcome. Retweisting more than 2-3 times a year is way too much. If you twist to start, that's not terrible. But they should never be redone. If you can see any scalp between your locks, that is a sign of balding. All you have to do to keep your locks separated is to rip them apart.
welcome but u should never retwist retwisting causes traction alopecia and slow but sure balding
just stop retwisting leave em alone
I saw your post. There's nothing wrong with having locks started. But using wax will actually prevent them from actually maturing. Wax sticks your hair together like glue. It hols down loose hair and prevents loops and tangles from forming. This in turn stops them from locking.
Hairs do tangle around the wax, but this just makes the wax get sucked deeper inside the core of your lock. And because wax is a hydrocarbon, it NEVER washes out in normal soap and water. It needs a detergent to get it out.
Wax being in your hair long term will cause problems later on. It traps moisture, which festers in your hair and creates a swampy environment where hair starts to degrade and rot. There are ways to kill the mold. But it's always better to not let it start growing first.
Not to mention that wax is sticky. dirt, lint, random fibers will get stuck to your hair and will be harder to get out
You can have clean looking sections without using wax/gels. Just separate them into the sections you want and keep separating them back when they start to congo again
