    I just read through this thread and I keep seeing people say they are using wax and gel. That stuff is no good for locs. Wax will cause build up and clog the pores on your scalp. Gel will dry you all the way out. Both will prevent growth. I don't retwist my own, but where I go they use this.

    Ima try this after I run out of my current product, I have heard great things about Taliah Waajid.

    Been natural for a little over a year and now im in the process of starting locs with small box braids, im 3 months in... no buds in sight

    Anyone else start theres will braids? If so you have any tips?

    This question is for everyone, how long it take your hair to start locing?

    Heard water helps accelerate the locing process is that true?

    I started buding in a month and a half. Fully locked in 3 months. Water won't help loc but you do need to wash them, 🤬 scalp will inhibit growth and cause irritation.

    I started mine with twist

    my hair started locking withing 3-4 months

    sea water helps accelerate locking. If you are by the ocean take a dip. There is probably some concoction you can make with sea salt and water.

    Does this product feel like a gel or a cream?

    I have used the one below. It doesn't hold more than a week. That's why I stopped using it.

    It holds my hair for weeks, until I wash again.
    What do you use now @MzKB

    @ohmars…I use barry fletcher loc serum and I love it. I always try different products just to see how it stands against what I normally use

    Just got my hair interlocked, that 🤬 hurt but I like the way it looks more than a regular retwist. We shall see how is stands up to washing
