You don't have to stress about the smaller locks if uniformity is not a problem. Small locks are weaker if you use twisting to retighten. Latching is better for small locks. If you latch with the same amount if tension, avoiding weak spots, you should be fine. I have 5 year old SLs(over 500) and I have lost the tips of less than 10 of them in that time. Considering I've been retightening on my own for over 4 years, I feel very proud of that.
Oh wow thankyou!! not sure what latching is but on my way to youtube right now... and it seems very easy to do. the latch hooks are very cheap...
I only retwist the front of my hair come a few times a week because they come undone abut i just stopped today because i don't want to overtwist them.
Should I start latching them now or wait until they loc up?
