My roots are much thinner than the rest of my locks now. What could be causing this?

Weakened roots can be caused by a few different things. Dreadlocks are created by capturing and knotting the hair that is naturally shed from your scalp into the dread you have created. Because of this, the lock grows in mass as well as length. If you have started with very small sections, it's possible that the weight of the lock is now too much for the small amount of hairs that anchor it, breaking them slowly. In this case, you may consider joining your weakened lock to its neighbor, giving it a larger base. If your scalp is thinning or balding, you are no longer replacing shed hairs with new ones, and the dreads will eventually be unable to support themselves.
