What is a Retwist?
A Retwist is when you need periodic maintenance on your roots and new growth. This does not include maintenance along the length of your dreadlock, such as thinning areas(That would be listed under Maintenance).
Retwists are scheduled periodically(such as monthly) to prevent breakage and damage of the locs. Doing retwists prevents the new growth from separating from the loc, thus producing a healthy loc.
Over retwisting is dangerous and can result in loc thinning.
Retwists should be done on palm rolled, comb twisted and finger made locs. Water, gel or dry methods may be used, depending on texture of hair.
Retwists are done every 3 to 6 weeks depending on your activity and rate of root growth.
What do do in between Retwists
In between visits, oil your scalp regularly to retain moisture, as locs soak up a lot of the oils in your scalp naturally. Wearing a silk scarf at night helps to protect your locs and any other type of cap may actually cause breakage around the scalp edges and top of head.
If you have European/Straight Hair, the Crochet tool May be used as a Maintenance service for the roots and along the shaft as one. Click Here for more info.
When You need more than a retwist.
If you have not kept up with your maintenance schedule, your locs may have thinned and broken off. This happens because the new growth often wiggles out of the loc area and doesn’t loc into the shaft. This causes hair to hang and if the hair grows out even more, 6 months to a year, the locs will also hang heavy and break-off since the scalp has produced more hair. Maintenance prevents this from happening because the new growth is neatly joined with the shaft of the loc periodically, making it stronger and more uniform. Thus producing and Maintaining a healthy loc.
