So i’ve been getting really frustrated with my hair lately. I started my loc journey back in November (4 months ago) and it just didn’t seem to be going the way i wanted. While there are sections of my hair that seems to be mating up and locking fine other sections such as the front where my hair…
I also started my locs in November and it hasn’t been easy but I have a few tips.
Your loctician definitely should have told you to moisturize your hair as frequently as it is needed. I’ve found that water is my hair’s best friend and I pretty much let it get soaking wet under the shower head every few days. Between that, I make sure that it’s oiled properly so that the moisture stays sealed in.
I’m having a similar issue with the front of my hair not locking, so I did interlock a few at the front. This has been really useful! Just make sure that your loctician knows what she/he is doing or else they’ll turn out really skinny.
Definitely check out Youtube videos on locs and find some loc forums (like the Nappturality forum) and there will be loads of advice for loc newbies. I hope you stick with it!
