Week 2 started today! I decided to split my baby locs apart to make them smaller yesterday. I wanted to split my hair ASAP, so as not to slow down the locking process. I now have around 260 locs and before I had 184. The pictures are of my locs before I split them. Surprisingly, my hair had a lot of coils that were very difficult to pull apart. Most locs I left, unless they were just too thick or were not difficult to split apart.
I decided to split my locs because I want my hair to be full and voluminous. And, I won’t ever twist my hair to death, because I hate that scalpy look and I would like to maintain the thickness of my loose hair. I know it takes more time to re-twist more locs, but I have an idea of what I want to look like 10 years from now and I’m sticking with it.
