the fuzzies is one of the stages of locing almost everyone that locs go throught it but I've heard of some using salt water to tighen but that maybe drying to your hair. i would also like to add that I henna myhair and that seem to help tighten a little hth.

You can't run away from the frizzies.  They're inevitableLOL.  Within a week or so my locs are a little frizzy after maintenance.  I have noticed that  people that loc with a gel and sit under the dryer have a more "neat" appearance to their locs.  I wash, twist with an oil or loc butter and usually let it air dry....which equals frizzies.  I believe it depends on your hair texture as well.

that's correct, until they reach a certain length and she's able to palm roll instead...

To get rid of frizzies, just palm roll when they are still wet, but the only thing is after a few days they will get frizzed up again....... its just part of the locking journey, it adds character to the locs though, locs are never gonna be neat and tidy, thats what makes them beutiful :)

in my hair when i first started out, my hair use to be frizzy all da time after a couple of days or weeks of having my twists. but as my hair got longer and got more buds it becomes a little less frizzy.  i been having twists for 4 months now
