    Question Thining Locs HELP!!

    Help, I have 6 year old locs that are starting to thin at the roots. I was advised to get some black castor oil and to forgo maintenance for an extended period to get my roots back thicker, are there any other ways you can think of. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    How long are your locs? You may either need to cut or combine your locks.

    My locs are almost waist length....I can combine, but I am not going to cut my hair.

    Any update on your locs Wizdom? If not, anyone else want to chime in? I'm 8 years loc'd this fall and after a rough pregnancy and lack of time with now 2 kids, I'm finding my locs are thinning at the root and I'm not interested in cutting them, either...

    Sorry been away so long, but I have been semi-free forming and just washing, separating and letting them grow, I added a little Jamaican black castor oil and I see it starting to thicken up. I am on epileptic drugs and my medication was just recently up, so that could have also added to my thinning, but I think I might stay in the semi-free form stage from now on and just twist maybe once or twice a year. It has made my locs fuller and the growth is excellent.

    Hi! I too am on epileptic drugs and am having thinning issues. I don't have any answers for you but I just wanted to mention that. Can I ask which medication you are on?

    Free forming and castor oil was a good solution! I free-form too, I get them twisted every 4 to 5 months. I love the fuzzy look!
