    Default Locs thinning on hairline

    Hello all,

    I am new here so apologies if this is not the correct place.

    I have been growing my locs for about 13 years now and I cut them every few months just because I do not like all the weight. Recently I have noticed the left side of my hairline seems a bit thin or thin to me. Only that side and it seems to be a very small area. Last retwist I ended up combining a thinning dread with a much healthier one next to it. Not sure if that was the best practice or not but it is what it is at this point. I just bought some jamaican black castor oil and will start using this weekend. I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions? Or even the best practice to use the oil. Thanks ahead of time

    Yes, the weight of your locks can rip the hair out of the follicle. Also the retwisting. i would encourage you to latch the edges....you'll save your hairline.

    i suggest rosemary drops and aloe vera juice spritzes 2x/day. This is way more effective than JCO. JCO works for some...aloevera/rosemary works for all-just google to ensure you don't have any health contraindications to the EO.

    Hi WaynePerry! I know Iím late to this, but I figured I could help a little lol. To prevent this with my clients, I make the parts of the front locs a little bigger, so combining it to a bigger one was a good idea. As mentioned before, latching will definitely help. But I have a question, is the side thatís thinner the side you sleep on? And if you tie your hair up at night, what are you using? Sometimes if itís something with a knot, over time the placement of the knot can cause breakage. A wide band bonnet works wonders. And daily scalp massages with an oil that supports blood circulation will help with growth (peppermint, cinnamon leaf etc...) Also, some biotin oil on the scalp and in the form of a vitamin will help to grow strong hair. I hope that helps!

    No worries thanks for the reply. I think it is the side I sleep on but canít be definite about that. It only seems to be one spot though.

    I rarely use to tie my hair up but I remember a few months where I would and felt tugging in that area on that same loc. When I sleep I generally just throw my hair in a bonnet.

    Since the post Iíve started using JCO, aloe Vera juice, rosemary oil, and peppermint oil. Itís only been a few weeks but looks to be improving. Will update on a few months.
