This is my first video, sort of an introduction, to my new journey to Traditional Locs. While searching through YouTube for Loc inspiration and doing some research for my own journey I stumbled upon two great channels; Shawnta715 and PrettiPoison27.
After watching a few of Shawnta715's videos, and understanding her reasons for starting her locs with Backcombing, I felt that method would work for me as well. Then I watched a few of PrettiPoison27's videos and she bought up a good point about parting sizes, which I have been really particular about, and her suggestion is that it really won't matter as your hair matures.
I love that you guys are taking this journey with me and I if you checked out the video please leave a comment about my questions and/or your experience starting Locs...
Should I start with Backcombing? Or what method would you suggest?
Should I start my Traditional Locs myself or go to the Salon?
Square parts or Diamond/Triangle parts? Or do the matters really matter?
