My way of locing my hair so that it is tight and I can get it wet from day one.
This took me a few days because I started with braid locs. Once they were done I decided I wanted them smaller so I started to halve the locs I started. While unbraiding and re-braiding I discovered that most people have locs that look like braids for up to a year or more. I had no interest in that so I began the twist/interlock method described. Only after I was mostly finished did I realize that if I pulled the hair it would make the lock tighter so I am not totally sure I won't go back and re-twist them all… Damn being a Virgo. LOL
I use pure shea butter in them and as long as I warm it in my hands to make it creamy I have found no build up issues and my hair is still soft.
Mind the boxes in the back I am moving.
